Donnerstag, den 07. Februar 2008 um 00:05 Uhr
Enova Systems announce that its 120kW System has been chosen to power four Optare Solo Buses, integrated by UK based, Traction Technology Plc. The Buses will incorporate Enova's 120kW Series Hybrid drive system.
This award follows extensive competitive trial evaluation by Merseytravel. This is the first time that Traction has been part of a head to head evaluation of its hybrid system and their success in this trial is seen by Enova as a critical indicator in Traction's plans for the adoption of its offering in the UK market and beyond.
Enova Systems' Terry Morano stated, "The fact that these vehicles are running with ultracapacitors illustrates the flexibility of Enova's Electric Drive System's towards diverse power systems, such as batteries, fuel cells, bio fuels, hydrogen, and now, ultracapacitors."
Traction Technology is a designer and distributor of environmentally friendly, low emission series diesel electric hybrid engine systems. The confirmed contract with Merseytravel is to supply four hybrid Optare Solo buses. Each will be powered by a hybrid diesel system, in tandem with an ultracapacitor power pack.
