EnerDel, a leading supplier of advanced lithium-ion batteries, announced it had reached a major milestone by achieving 20 million miles driven by its hybrid bus ESS units. EnerDel’s Vigor+ packs are playing a major role in fueling the company’s resurgence as a major U.S. manufacturer of advanced lithium-ion battery systems. “Transit agencies are seeking savings and technology improvement for their diesel-electric hybrid fleets when planning mid-life overhauls. Our lithium technology has set a new reliability milestone and further proves to be a viable solution for hybrid bus operators”, commented Dr. Tomasz Poznar, EnerDel’s VP of Transportation.
The PP320-738-LP Vigor+ lithium-ion ESS has proven to be a dependable solution for hybrid buses. The Vigor+ production pack is approved for use with the Allison Hybrid H 40/50 EP system that is installed in diesel-hybrid buses in 15 cities through the United States and Canada. Currently, there are over 600 buses equipped with EnerDel lithium ESS equating to 20 million miles traveled since 2014.
At 21 kilowatt/hours, the PP320-738-LP Vigor+ pack offers over three times as much energy and longer life than the original OEM equipment while maintaining the same package. The Vigor+ pack offers a robust transportation-grade product with 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. The product meets Buy America Act requirements and is produced in Indianapolis, Indiana.
“We are proud of the market demand that our product has created and continued growing our customer and distribution network”, said Dr. John Warner, CMO at EnerDel. “Our customer satisfaction is defined by repeat orders and their commitments to overhaul entire fleet with our product.”
