Waukesha, WI-based Odyne Systems, LLC, manufacturer of hybrid systems for medium- and heavy-duty work trucks, will showcase its new advanced hybrid propulsion system developed in conjunction with Remy Inc. at the ICUEE show this week in Louisville, KY.
The ICUEE show runs from Tuesday through Thursday.
The plug-in hybrid system, said to reduce fuel consumption by up to 50%, is installed on an International truck chassis and designed to interface with a wide variety of truck-mounted equipment. The system is designed to save fuel, reduce emissions and provide quieter operation at the work site.
The hybrid truck system uses a rugged Remy electric motor in parallel with the existing drive train to provide launch assist and regenerative braking. The battery system featuring lithium ion battery packs can also be used to power worksite applications.
“The Odyne Hybrid Power system delivers improved performance for medium and large work vehicles,” said Joe Dalum, president & CEO of Odyne Systems. “Odyne’s unique system helps reduce operating costs through higher efficiency, and depending on duty cycle, enables large trucks to obtain fuel economy improvements of up to 50%, compared to traditional diesel or gasoline engines.”
