Odyne Systems, LLC, is expanding distribution and support of Odyne plug-in hybrid systems for medium and heavy- duty trucks beyond the 15 state Dueco, Inc territory by appointing Terex Utilities as distributor throughout the rest of the US and globally. Odyne Systems develops and markets turnkey hybrid solutions optimised for fleets that utilise vehicles with driving cycles featuring a high percentage of starting and stopping, along with extended periods of jobsite idle time. Companies operating utility or work vehicles with this profile benefit significantly by using the company’s proprietary parallel plug-in hybrid system. Odyne’s unique modular system can be installed on a wide variety of new and existing vehicles, reducing fuel consumption by up to 50 per cent depending on application, lowering emissions and eliminating or significantly reducing engine noise at the jobsite. Odyne’s plug-in hybrid truck systems increase fuel efficiency while driving by using an electric motor in parallel with the existing drive train, providing launch assist and regenerative braking.
