Replacing locomotive batteries is expensive. A failed start is not only inconvenient, but also, exceptionally costly. Whether it’s cold weather starting, battery life extension or just overall starting reliability, our solutions have a proven history of increasing the reliability and availability of locomotives with a strong ROI.

ZTR KickStart™ uses supercapacitor technology to supplement the locomotive batteries during the engine start, reducing strain on the batteries. The result is, less energy drain from the batteries, longer battery life, faster cranking speed, less time to recharge the batteries, improved cold weather starts, and ultimately, increased locomotive availability.
