Odyne Displaying Plug-In Hybrid Systems at HTUF 2012

Odyne will display its plug-in hybrid technologies during HTUF 2012, including the advanced hybrid propulsion system.

Waukesha, WI-based Odyne Systems, LLC, a leading manufacturer of hybrid systems for medium- and heavy-duty work trucks, is showcasing its advanced hybrid propulsion system mounted on a Ford F750 chassis in booth 709 at the HTUF show September 18 to 20 in Charlotte, NC. The Odyne booth will also feature a Johnson Controls lithium-ion battery pack that powers the hybrid system, delivering power to the truck attachments while also providing climate control to the cab. Odyne plug-in hybrid systems are designed to interface with a wide variety of truck mounted equipment, saving fuel, reducing emissions and providing quieter operation at the work site. Odyne’s plug-in system, driven through the Allison 3000RDS transmission, increases fuel efficiency and power while driving by using a rugged Remy electric motor in parallel with the existing drive train to provide launch assist and regenerative braking. At the jobsite, the Johnson Controls’ lithium-ion battery packs power worksite applications.

"The Odyne Hybrid Power system delivers improved performance for medium and large work vehicles,” says Joe Dalum, President and Chief Executive Officer 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.“

Odyne Director of Sales, Matt Jarmuz, will be speaking at the conference on the Utility and Telecom Applications on Wednesday, September 18 at 1:30 p.m.

Odyne will have a vehicle in the Ride and Drive on September 20 for attendees to test drive.
