backup power ??

Pure guess that this is what they mean. More literally, perhaps 'combined operation' or 'mains/battery operation'.

joint operation

I have found many hits on google for joint operation. Also sounds right to me.

drift = operation
sam = same

Example sentence(s):
  • Light rail, mini-metro, S-trains and joint operation between these modes has ...minimetro og S-tog samt samdrift mellem disse transportformer ..
  • riftsanalyse av Reitanfeltet samdrift DA 2006=Analysis over the joint operation, Reitanfeltet
