Waukesha, WI – September 28, 2011—Waukesha based Odyne Systems, LLC, a leading manufacturer of hybrid systems for medium and heavy duty work trucks, is showcasing its new advanced hybrid propulsion system in booth 4551 at the ICUEE show October 4-6 in Louisville, Kentucky. The plug-in hybrid system, shown on an International chassis, is 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 hybrid truck system 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 Odyne hybrid plug-in battery system featuring lithium-ion battery packs powers worksite applications. A Remy motor display will also be featured in the booth.
“The Odyne Hybrid Power system delivers improved performance for medium and large work vehicles,” said 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.“
