World’s First Wireless Electric Tram Line Undergoes Testing

World’s First Wireless Electric Tram Line Undergoes Testing | In Compliance Magazine

Testing has begun on an 8.2km section of the world’s first wireless electric tram line in Taiwan over the weekend. These light-rail trains use high-energy wireless charging technology instead of overhead electrical lines.

The tram cars are fitted with “rapid charger accumulators’ that can store less energy, but can be charged approximately ten times faster than batteries. The cars will be charged while they’re stopped at each station. This new light-rail technology will allow for public transportation infrastructures to be built at lower costs due to the elimination of overhead electrical lines. When the entire project is completed in 2017, the Kaohsiung Light-Rail Transit line will operate in a 22.1 km circular route with 36 stations.
