Siemens and Continental cooperate in manufacturing pantographs for trucks

Siemens Mobility and Continental Engineering Services(CES) will cooperate in the future on the development and manufacture of pantographs for trucks. The eHighway technology from Siemens mobility supplies trucks with electricity via an overhead line. The cooperation aims to electrify key stretches of highway-networks in Germany’s autobahn network with overhead contact lines and thus significantly reduce CO 2 emissions from trucks. The new partnership combines expertise from two technology worlds: Siemens Mobility is a specialist in rail electrification, Continental Engineering Servicesis a development and production service provider for automotive technologies. The two companies will now pool their know-how to quickly achieve series production of truck pantograph
