Terex Wins Green Award
Terex Utilities (www.terex.com) won the Green Award for its HyPower Hybrid system at the Work Truck Show 2010. A panel of trade media editors selected the system from among 21 entries as the best new product displayed at the show that advances fuel utilization.
The HyPower Hybrid is a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle system that allows utility truck operators to save up to 1.5 gallons of fuel per hour. The system operates the truck’s aerial lift without running the engine to save fuel, reduce emissions and eliminate noise. Terex estimates that the HyPower Hybrid system can reduce diesel fuel usage by up to 6 gallons every workday. The HyPower system was designed specifically for the utility industry, where vehicles may remain stationary for several hours. It is self-contained, so it can be installed on virtually any chassis, including older trucks. It does not interface with the vehicle engine or transmission, reducing associated wear and tear.
