Watertown, SD-based Terex Utilities won The Work Truck Show Green Award for its HyPower Hybrid system shown at the show, which is presented annually by the National Truck Equipment Assn. , that was held earlier this month in St. Louis. A panel of journalists who cover the trucking industry selected the company’s HyPower hybrid system as the “best new product that advances fuel utilization displayed at The Work Truck Show.”

The HyPower Hybrid is a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle system that Terex said allows utility truck operators to save up to 1.5 gal of fuel per hour. The system operates the truck’s aerial lift without running the engine to save fuel, reduce emissions and eliminate noise. Terex estimates that the HyPower Hybrid system can reduce diesel fuel usage by up to six gallons every work day. The HyPower system was designed specifically for the utility industry, where vehicles may remain stationary for several hours. It is self-contained, so it can be installed on virtually any chassis, including older trucks. It does not interface with the vehicle engine or transmission, reducing associated wear and tear, noted the company.

“Winning The Work Truck Show Green Award is truly meaningful for us at Terex,” said Terry VanConant, marketing communications & promotions coordinator, who accepted the award for Terex. “Chosen from a field of 20 other entries, the industry recognizes that our HyPower system is a practical way for our customers to save energy and reduce emissions.”

Produced annually by NTEA, The Work Truck Show showcases more than 500,000 sq ft of Class 1 to 8 vocational trucks and equipment. The Work Truck Show 2011 will be held in conjunction with the 47th Annual NTEA Convention March 7-10, 2011, at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis.
