UQM Technologies announced that it has received a generator order from Traction Technology Plc to power their hybrid electric power packs for use in city buses in the United Kingdom.
The UQM PowerPhase 100 and PowerPhase 150 generators have been selected to offer Traction Technology customers maximum choice. The generators will be coupled directly to a diesel engine.
Traction Technology also has plans to introduce the UQM PowerPhase 150 as a propulsion system option later this year. The Traction Technology hybrid electric power pack is expected to enable a city bus to meet the upcoming Euro V Diesel Emissions Standards while at the same time improving vehicle performance.
Working in conjunction with Transport for London operator Epsom Coaches, Merseytravel and Ipswich Buses Limited, Traction Technology plans to develop the hybrid power packs to meet the Low Emission Zone requirements set forth by the 2010 EU air quality objectives.
Traction Technology designs and manufactures hybrid power packs for the transport industry to replace the standard diesel engine and transmission system while improving fuel consumption and emissions.
