Remy Electric Motors, a manufacturer of advanced electric propulsion motors, and Odyne Systems, a manufacturer of hybrid systems for medium- and heavy-duty trucks, have signed a long-term motor supply agreement in which Odyne will use Remy’s HVH250 electric motors in its plug-in hybrid system, which helps increase a large truck’s on-road fuel efficiency and provides launch assist and regenerative braking. Once stationary at the jobsite, work trucks are able to use Odyne’s hybrid system to operate worksite applications without using engine power.
“The integration of Remy’s electric motor into Odyne’s system demonstrates the power and flexibility of our HVH motor,” says Kevin Quinn, Remy Electric Motors vice president and general manager. “It can power a vehicle, act as a generator and can provide auxiliary power. With over a billion miles of proven reliability and power on the road, we are delighted our Remy electric motors will now provide that same durability and efficiency for Odyne’s plug-in hybrid system.”
Remy’s patented High Voltage Hairpin (HVH) technology’s torque and power density are engineered to deliver added speed and range to electric vehicles through direct and regen power. Companies like GM, BMW, Allison Transmission, AMP Electric Vehicles and Aptera use the Remy HVH electric motor.
“This partnership between Remy and Odyne brings together two innovative companies whose technologies will deliver better performance for medium and large work vehicles,” says Joe Dalum, president and chief executive officer of Odyne Systems. “As part of Odyne’s unique system, Remy’s HVH motor will help reduce the need for vehicle refueling and will provide enough quiet power onsite to run truck-mounted equipment for hours with the engine off. This collaboration with Remy will build upon our strong experience in helping companies reduce their carbon footprint and meet sustainable energy goals.”
