EnerDel and Interstate Power Systems Secure Supply Agreement to Furnish Hybrid Bus Batteries for CTA Hybrid Bus Rehabilitation Project

09 Oct 2017

EnerDel, a leading supplier of advanced lithium-ion batteries, and its distributor partner Interstate Power Systems announced that they have started deliveries of the first units of the PP320-738-LP Vigor+ Allison approved ESS in support of the Chicago Transit Authority’s hybrid bus rehabilitation project.

EnerDel’s Vigor+ packs continue to play a key 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/hours, the PP320-738-LP Vigor+ pack offers over three times as much energy and greater life than the original OEM equipment while maintaining the same packaging space. Key benefits of EnerDel’s Vigor+ pack are Buy America Compliance, exceptional warranty, robust transportation-grade packaging and built-in system control redundancies to ensure enhanced pack protection and user safety.

“EnerDel has almost 7 years and 20 million miles of experience with our battery products for the transit market. We are excited to have been selected to supply the Chicago Transit Authority with our PP320-738-LP Vigor+ ESS replacement. With our distributor partner Interstate Power Systems, we will not only be able to provide the Chicago Transit Authority a world class product but world class service and support” said Bruce Silk, Sales & Account Manager
