EnerDel Secures 1st California Transit for Diesel Hybrid Bus Battery
Shipments of EnerDel’s lithium-ion PP320-738-LP Vigor + Allison approved battery pack for hybrid bus installations reaches new milestone
INDIANAPOLIS, IN – 17 April 2017 –EnerDel, a leading supplier of advanced lithium-ion batteries, announced that it had delivered first units of their PP320-738-LP Vigor+ Allison approved pack to California. This represents the first PP320-738-LP Vigor+ packs to be used by a California municipality. There are now more than a dozen municipalities throughout North America that have begun adding EnerDel products to their transit hybrid buses.
EnerDel’s Vigor+ packs continue to play a major role in fueling the company’s resurgence as a major U.S. manufacturer of advanced lithium-ion battery systems. “EnerDel’s commitment to the transit market is being rewarded with the sustained growth of the PP320-738-LP as new municipalities continue their uptake of this product,” said Michael Canada, CEO of EnerDel. The PP320-738-LP Vigor+ pack is approved for use with the Allison Hybrid H 40/50 EP™ system installed in diesel-hybrid buses globally and is currently operating in buses throughout the United States and Canada in over a dozen municipalities.
At 21 kilowatt/hour, the PP320-738-LP Vigor+ pack offers over three times as much energy and three times the life as the original OEM equipment while maintaining the same packaging space. The Vigor+ pack offers robust transportation-grade packaging and built-in system control redundancies to ensure enhanced pack protection and user safety. It is designed to allow for easy-access to sub-pack assemblies, the air cooled thermal management and battery management systems.
“This is the first California transit using our lithium-ion ESS for the Allison Diesel hybrid bus. However, we have almost seven years and 1.8 million miles of experience with Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District with their fuel cell hybrid fleet. We are excited to add our first lithium-ion ESS for Allison hybrid in California.“, said Tomasz Poznar, VP of Transportation Sales.
