The heavy vehicle industry delivers 70% of EU consumer goods, but faces major problems and revenue loss due to engine start failure caused by the stress imposed by lead-acid batteries. There is a pressing need for a solution that decreases operational costs and lead use during vehicles' lifecycle.
GO-START replaces one battery in trucks and buses, so that the vehicles will always start even in cold temperatures or if batteries are seriously discharged. It is installed just like a battery and operates reliably for hundreds of thousands of cycles. This solution eliminates the downtime costs of engine start failures, expands battery lifespan, reduces use of lead in the vehicle’s lifecycle, and reduces CO2 emissions and fuel consumption by eliminating the need for continuous idling.
