Can Eurotunnel trains cope with additional weight of battery cars?

By 2030, the Eurotunnel trains need to plan for all battery cars. I ask the following assuming that there is a full load of battery cars and the additional weight that entails.

Can the Eurotunnel structure and trains safely cope with the following:

A) Train pulling capacity
B) Train structure, upper and lower deck
C) rail lines designed for additional weight
