Aagland designs electric carriage

Under the motto "luxury through slowness", the carriage "E-Aaglander" gives tourists a feeling of gliding through the streets of cities. This is possible without affecting the environment as the carriages have an electric motor.

Travelling through the historic old town in a carriage has been a highlight for many tourists. However, looking after the animals is connected with a lot of effort and high costs.

Aagland Ltd. and Limited Partnership thus offer an alternative – a carriage with electrical drive engineering produced by Linde Material Handling. Linde Material Handling, European-wide leading producer of electrical counterbalance trucks, will present this at the MobiliTec fair.

Aagland has been building automotive carriages for a while. They are used for sightseeing tours through city centres or for hotel shuttle services. So far, their carriages have been driven by diesel engines.

The company discovered the electrical drive engineering of Linde MH at the SPS IPC Drives exhibition in Nuremberg, Germany, last year. They decided to work together with Linde MH in the department Electronic Systems & Drives (ES&D).

A battery with 48 V and 400 amp hours is used for the "E-Aaglander". As the vehicle can go 20 km/h at maximum speed, it makes it possible for tourists to enjoy the view. They only need to have a driving license for a car in order to drive it.

Aagland already received orders for the electric carriages before the presentation at the MobiliTec. Linde MH and Aagland will now also equip a smaller carriage "Duc" with electrical drive engineering.
