    SEPTA Advances Energy Efficiency Goals with Unique Hybrid Energy Storage System from ABB

    ABB, the leading power and automation technology group, has been awarded a new contract by Southeastern Pennsylvania Transit Authority (SEPTA) to install a second ENVILINETM energy storage and recovery system for DC rail transportation. The system will be ABB's second on SEPTA property. he second system will incorporate a "hybrid" approach to energy storage, enabling SEPTA to recover train braking energy to reduce the electricity consumption, while simultaneously generating revenues by participating in ancillary (micro-grid) services of the local Regional Transmission Organization (RTO). The system will be installed at the Griscom Substation, located on SEPTA's Market-Frankford Line, its most heavily traveled route.

    1. This time, we will go one step further and deploy a hybrid energy storage system, by combining super capacitors with batteries. We will recover more braking energy, produce higher revenues from the frequency regulation, and extend the battery life. This innovation demonstrates the full capability and flexibility of our ENVILINE platform.
    2. ABB has a proven track record for providing innovative solutions and this repeat order confirms our ability to become a partner and supplier of choice to operators of modern rail systems.
