WAE develops new off-highway electrification technology

Williams Advanced Engineering (WAE), a subsidiary of Fortescue Metals Group, is attending Bauma 2022, showcasing a range of electrification solutions, all of which will support the acceleration of the off-highway sector in its journey to decarbonization. WAE used the event to show its battery and energy storage technology, specifically developed for the rugged use cases

WAE reveals prototype Triumph TE-1 motorcycle testing results

Final prototype test results have been announced for the Triumph TE-1 electric motorcycle, says Williams Advanced Engineering (WAE). WAE says the TE-1 has a 100-mile range, based on live testing and official projections. The bike also achieves 0-60 MPH in 3.6 seconds, and 0-100 MPH in 6.2 seconds. WAE adds the bike has a 20-minute

WAE working to advance battery thermal runway understanding

Imperial College London and Williams Advanced Engineering are working on a project to bridge the gap between thermofluid science and battery electrochemistry, developing a multiphase, multiphysics model of battery failure via thermal runaway (a self-sustaining cascade of exothermic reactions that produce large volumes of gas). The model will consider gas dynamics and its interactions with electrochemical

‘Infinity train’ EV charged by gravity in development

Fortescue has acquired UK-based Williams Advanced Engineering (WAE), and to mark the purchase, the companies announced the development of a world-first, zero-emission “infinity train.” The regenerating battery-electric iron ore train project will use gravitational energy to fully recharge its battery-electric systems without any additional charging requirements for the return trip to reload, the companies say.
