In a major step forward for sustainable freight transportation, Intramotev has deployed its railcar retrofit, known as the ReVolt, at Iron Senergy’s Cumberland Mine in Waynesburg, Pennsylvania.

The car has run for over 1,000 miles between the Cumberland Mine and its Alicia Harbour facility. ”We’re excited to deliver the fuel savings and environmental benefits of the ReVolt to our customer Iron Senergy,” said Tim Luchini, Intramotev’s CEO. “Today’s news marks an important milestone in our work to decarbonise mining and freight transportation, and we’re just getting started.”

Iron Senergy CEO and owner Justin Thompson said, “We’re thrilled to have partnered with Intramotev to deploy their forward-thinking technology. We’re always searching for ways to double down on our commitment to innovation and sustainability, and this partnership helps accomplish that in a big way.”

Intramotev continues to build momentum with customer deployments in the mining sector. Later this year, the company will deploy its locomotive replacement, known as the TugVolt, at a calcium mine in Northern Michigan.
