Odyne Systems, LLC to Showcase Early DOE Award Truck at 2014 EUFMC

Waukesha, WI, March 11, 2014 --(PR.com)-- Waukesha based Odyne Systems, LLC, a leading manufacturer of hybrid systems for medium and heavy duty work trucks and winner of the NTEA 2013 Green Truck Award, will be showcasing its advanced hybrid propulsion system at EUFMC in Williamsburg, VA June 1-4. The company will spotlight one of the first trucks being delivered as part of a $45.4 million U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) award for over 120 Odyne hybrid system equipped trucks. Attendees will have an opportunity to hear the quiet system and learn about the significant emission reduction and fuel savings of these vehicles.

Joe Dalum, Odyne President and CEO, who will be in attendance, noted, “We’re looking forward to EUFMC and the opportunity to share how the Odyne hybrid system is evolving into new applications that reliably deliver improved performance for medium and heavy-duty work trucks. 2014 is an exciting year for Odyne and customers throughout the country as we build and deliver over 120 trucks under a Department of Energy Award being administered by the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD), with support from EPRI, the Electric Power Research Institute. These trucks have just started to be deployed at job sites, and we are collecting data on operating performance for every truck as part of our contract. The industry is very eager to review the metrics and evaluate the significance of the savings. In past data collection efforts, the Odyne hybrid system has proven to lower fuel consumption by up to 50% or 1750 gallons of fuel annually compared to traditional diesel/gas engines. Odyne continues to be the only plug-in hybrid system on a medium- or heavy-duty truck to deliver greater fuel efficiency both while driving and at the work site.”

The Odyne system interfaces with Allison Transmission’s industry leading fully-automatic transmissions and uses a rugged Remy electric motor in parallel with the existing drivetrain to provide launch assist and regenerative braking. At the job site, the Odyne hybrid plug-in battery system, featuring Johnson Controls’ lithium-ion battery packs, powers typical work site applications with the engine off for a significantly longer time than other commercially available large truck hybrid systems.

Odyne systems are modular and can be applied and retrofitted to a wide range of work truck chassis in various applications. The systems are sold and serviced through a worldwide distribution network including Altec, DUECO and Terex Utilities. Odyne has also authorized selected Allison Transmission Distributors to service Odyne Systems across North America.
