US-based bus manufacturer ENC, a subsidiary of the REV Group, will use propulsion and power management technology from BAE Systems in its new battery-electric and hydrogen fuel cell transit buses.
BAE Systems will supply its Gen3 power inverters and electric motors, Modular Power Control System (MPCS) and Modular Accessory Power System (MAPS) to ENC for use in its Axess Battery Electric Bus (EVO-BE) and its Axess Hydrogen Fuel Cell Electric Bus (EVO-FC).
The EVO-BE will include a Proterra Powered battery system, and the EVO-FC will have a 125 kW hydrogen fuel cell from Plug.
BAE Systems’ electric propulsion technology is developed and serviced at its facilities in Endicott, New York and Rochester, UK.
