The new deployment, to take place in Mexico City, will help to demonstrate Enel X and volytica’s software solutions including an innovative battery diagnostics system (BDS) for real-time monitoring. Mexico City’s transport authority, Metrobús deployed 51 new buses on the city’s Line 3 route in February.

The collaboration is aiming to enhance the performance of the batteries and thus also the operational efficiency of fleets, while also implementing predictive maintenance measures and extending the life of the batteries. Additionally, it involves investigating potential second-life applications, such as repurposing batteries for renewable energy projects or integrating them into electric grid stabilisation systems.

“Bringing our battery diagnostics system into this transformative collaboration with Enel X is exciting for the whole team” said Claudius Jehle, CEO, and founder of volytica. “We are proud that the decision to partner with us was motivated by our extensive experience and the seamless integration of battery KPIs into Enel X digital dashboard, as well as advanced functionalities like a system of notifications and alerting. This emphasizes our joint commitment to ensuring the reliability and longevity of electric bus fleets.”

The integration of volytica's battery diagnostics system will give the public transport operator (PTO) the ability to proactively execute predictive maintenance, effectively averting unplanned downtime. The solution not only addresses abnormal battery behaviour but also promotes transparency in asset status and offers insights for preservation and performance enhancement.

The collaboration hopes to pave the way for similar projects all over the world, serving as a proof of concept for municipalities looking to cost effectively shift their public transit systems to low carbon sustainable alternatives.
