How does a power wagon work?

How does a power wagon work?

The power wagon operates like a bicycle dynamo. As the wheels rotate during transport, a hydraulic mechanism generates electricity which is being stored into a sizable battery. This power is then supplied to the container or trailer, ensuring continued operation of reefer units for temperature-controlled transportation, even during standstill. We offer power-wagons in various sizes (60-80-90ft) with a range of battery capacities, to offer the right wagon for the job.

Types of power wagons

  • Power wagon

    The power wagon is fully autonomous and generates electricity during transport by the movement of the wagon.

  • Plug-in power wagon

    The plug-in power wagon is powered by the electricity which a locomotive continuously transfers from the catenary to the wagon, whilst driving.
