27 March 2020 year More than 1000 diesel locomotives belonging to Russian Railways are now energy-efficient thanks to solutions based on TEEMP supercapacitors

TEEMP – a Russian manufacturer of energy accumulation and storage systems – together with AVP Technology LLC has supplied over 1,000 automatic start-stop systems for the engines of JSC Russian Railways’ shunting diesel locomotives.

Diesel locomotives are being equipped in accordance with the provisions of JSC Russian Railways’ Key Initiatives Programme until 2025, one of which is to reduce polluting emissions into the atmosphere by at least 18% by 2025. Thanks to this approach, JSC Russian Railways is maintaining its leading position in energy efficiency and environmental friendliness of cargo and public transportation among railway companies around the world – Russia ranks first in energy efficiency of cargo railway transportation in comparison with all European railway administrations, the railways of China, Japan, India and the United States.

The rolling stock is equipped with MO-110V18F-0, MO-75V50F-01 and MO-75V100F model supercapacitor modules. All modules are manufactured using unique technology patented in Russia, in Khimki. TEEMP systems manufactured by AVP Technology LLC for JSC Russian Railways’ diesel locomotives have no parallel in terms of stored energy density per unit volume or unit mass, the uniformity of current capacity and the integrated system of thermal field dissipation (cooling).

The main purpose of installing such systems is to reduce fuel consumption by minimising diesel locomotive downtime with a running diesel engine, as well as maintaining an acceptable temperature level of coolants (cooling fluid and oil) in the diesel locomotive during its long-term parking, and ensuring reliable start-up of the diesel engine. Just one diesel locomotive alone can save up to 300,000 roubles on diesel fuel, engine oil and air pollution fees over 1 year due to the automatic diesel engine start-stop system based on TEEMP supercapacitors.

AVP TECHNOLOGY LLC ( is a company with more than 20 years of history, a leader in the field of automation of railway rolling stock control processes.

TEEMP ( is a domestic full-cycle enterprise engaged in design, series production of individual supercapacitor elements, supercapacitors and supercapacitor-based energy accumulation and storage devices, according to its own exclusive documentation (engineering and technical documentation and specifications), using its own results of intellectual activity in the form of patents and know-how. Since 2011, TEEMP has been a resident of the Skolkovo Fund. To date, more than 43,000 TEEMP supercapacitors have been successfully operated in the commercial sector. Series production is certified according to the ISO 9001, GOST RV quality management system.
