Electric power and propulsion systems for buses

Posted on 28 Mar 2020 and read 850 times
Electric power and propulsion systems for busesBAE Systems, a world leader in electric propulsion, has been selected by Falkirk-based Alexander Dennis Ltd (ADL) (www.alexander-dennis.com) and the Republic of Ireland’s National Transport Authority (NTA) (www.nationaltransport.ie) to supply up to 600 electric power and propulsion systems for a new fleet of buses; the initial order is for 100 systems.

Steve Trichka, general manager of Power and Propulsion Solutions at BAE Systems, said: “The Series-ER system is an
important step to full electrification for Ireland.”

With Series-ER, the buses will be able to drive on clean electric power through designated low-emission and zero-emission zones.

The system uses global positioning software to enable the buses to run in fully electric mode when they enter these zones, eliminating the release of exhaust emissions in areas such as near schools, hospitals and tourist attractions.

BAE Systems (www.baesystems.com) has 20-plus years of experience developing and integrating electric propulsion systems and accessories for transit buses.

Series-ER builds on that foundation, maximising the efficiency of the energy storage system. With increased battery capacity, the system provides zero-emission travel without the need for the bus to stop and recharge.

Series-ER technology is currently used by more than 200 buses around the world, in places such as Brighton, Boston and San Francisco. For more information, visit the Web site (www.gettozero.com).
