SAF-Holland will participate in the next edition of Solutrans, the international exhibition to be held in Lyon from 16 to 20 November (we’ll be there, by the way, and will provide reports from the fair). The Group is expected to focus its presence on the topics of sustainability and safety, especially talking about e-axles, as already reported in this post about the successful inroad testing of the new series of electric trailer axles.
«This is how we create added value for commercial vehicle manufacturers and haulage companies. With our new electric axles, in particular the SAF TRAKr regenerative braking axle (pictures below, ed), we are ready for a sustainable future. We are delighted that we will have the opportunity to communicate this at Solutrans 2021 in person», said Jean Baghdad, Managing Director at SAF-HOLLAND France.

For electric trailers, SAF-HOLLAND has launched the SAF TRAKr electric axle. It uses regenerative braking to minimize fuel consumption as well as the CO2 and particulate emissions of the trailers. This protects the environment and extends the service life of the individual components. Another contribution to protecting
resources: The generators on the electric axle are manufactured without rare earth metals and without copper. «Our electrically driven axles make heavy-goods transport more sustainable and also more efficient», added Jean Baghdad.
The preferred application for the SAF TRAKr are refrigerated vehicles in which auxiliary consuming units such as the refrigeration units or heaters can be run fully with electric power on a temporary basis. First user experiences and findings from the current test phase in international transport are also used in the further development.
