Rail Vehicles

Kiepe Electric ranks among the foremost suppliers of systems for electrified local public transport.

Electrical equipment from Kiepe Electric helps to power new vehicles in many cities of the world: Berlin, Paris, London, Vienna, Kraków, and Taipei.

The traction kits, on-board power supply units, vehicle control systems, and HVAC equipment along with a host of electronic and electrical components are the results of our own development and production efforts. The individual items are assembled into a complete, customer-specific, single-source package.

Kiepe Electric supplies total electric systems for both platform-engineered series vehicles and for highly specific customer requirements.

Also included among our specialties is the fitting-out of one-off vehicles.

New vehicles such as work locomotives and the revamping of tramcars are typical examples of Kiepe Electric’s special project solutions.

Thanks to a high degree of modularity, Kiepe is in a position to supply electrical kits both as complete systems and subsystems.

The range covers the following overhead voltages:

•    DC 600 V/ DC 750 V

•    DC 1500 V

•    DC 3000 V

•    AC 15 kV, 16 2/3 Hz

•    AC 25 kV, 50 Hz

plus diesel-electric solutions.

Light Rail Vehicles and Tramways

Kiepe Electric supplies the complete electrical equipment for rail vehicles. Propulsion technology, vehicle control systems, heating, ventilating and air-conditioning systems as well as static converters for the on-board power supply of the vehicles come from Kiepe's own development and production.

Tram-train vehicles

To ensure the regional connection, many transport undertakings follow the trend and now operate the same vehicle within the urban rail network and within the network of the Deutsche Bahn AG.

Regional Railways

The growing importance of public transport causes an increasing demand for regional connections. The increasing competition in the field of tenders for regional lines is the reason, why efficient systems gain more and more importance.

Special Vehicles

The individual equipment of special-purpose vehicles is one of the company´s strengths.

New vehicles, e.g. work locomotives, or reconstruction of tramcars to work or rail-grinding vehicles are only a few examples of the project solutions from Kiepe Electric.
