EnerDel Announces Canadian Deal
Indianapolis-based EnerDel has been selected to provide upgrades to a fleet of buses in Canada. Société de Transport de Montréal in Quebec has chosen EnerDel’s lithium-ion Energy Storage System for their Nova Bus parallel-hybrid fleet.
EnerDel says the agreement includes a five-year extended warranty, import and delivery to Canada, installation, recycling of the fleet’s former batteries, technical training and diagnostic tools. EnerDel Chief Executive Officer Michael Canada says the project took less than seven weeks to come together.
"EnerDel’s lithium-ion NMC technology and battery pack design demonstrated over 8 years of commercial service in thousands of on-road applications ranging from passenger cars to rail vehicles. We continue to grow our market share in the transit industry by working actively with end users, drive train system providers and vehicle OEMs” said Tomasz Poznar, vice president of transportation of EnerDel. "Industry requirements evolve and can only be met with strong technical product and customized solutions. We are extremely proud to announce this new customer commitment and prove again our market leading position."
The announcement is the latest Canadian deal for EnerDel, which announced in March that it had installed its first lithium-ion ESS for Coast Mountain Bus Co. in British Columbia. The company has also done work in Quebec in the past. In 2014, EnerDel announced a partnership with B3CG Interconnect Inc. to build school bus batteries.
