HyPower Hybrid System Retrofit

Terex Utilities

September 27, 2012 - Products

Terex Utilities offers customers the option to retrofit their current utility truck fleet with the TerexHyPower Hybrid System, a plug-in Power Take-Off (PTO) system that uses stored energy from the system’s rechargeable batteries to power the non-propulsion functions of most utility vehicles. The system helps customers save fuel and reduce exhaust emissions while allowing operators to function in a relatively quiet work environment.

Fleet managers can retrofit the system onto a current utility truck, including aerial devices and deigger derricks. The HyPower system reduces the engine idle hours on the job site, resulting in fewer oil changes, lower fuel consumption, as well as reducing the amount of times an engine will need to go into re-gen mode, according to the company.

The Terex HyPower Hybrid Retrofit Program can be applied to any Terex or competitive manufacturer’s aerial devices five years old or newer and can be completed at any one of our 14 different Terex Equipment Services (TES) locations. For an aerial device to be considered for a HyPower retrofit, it needs to pass an initial inspection, which includes an understanding of the truck’s available payload capacity, body configuration, and cab-to-axle length to accommodate the battery packs. After the inspection, retrofits can be completed in as little as two weeks.

HyPower retrofitted trucks come with the standard one-year warranty from the date of in-service on the system, the same as on new HyPower equipped units. According to the company, the system is durable enough to outlive its first vehicle and be used on another.

The ARB-approved (#11-643-002) Terex HyPower Hybrid System is designed to reduce the use of fuel for the work done while the vehicle is sitting still. Complying with national and regional air pollution rules and regulations, the Terex HyPower system reduces a whole range of exhaust emissions produced from diesel fuel and eliminates the noise from an idling engine normally used to run the hydraulic system. The HyPower system recharges from the electrical grid using a standard 110V—15 AMP outlet. There is no reduction in the performance of the controls while the trucks are in hybrid mode.
