BAE Systems to Build Transit Bus Electric Drives; Steve Trichka Comments - top government contractors - best government contracting event

Bae-systems-logo_ExecutiveBiz1BAE Systems will engineer an electric drive system for the Seattle transit agency's fleet of buses as the city looks to further adopt eco-friendly technologies.

King County Metro Transit intends to use BAE’s HybriDrive Series-E electric drive technology for the 120 New Flyer Xcelsior buses, BAE said Wednesday.

The HybriDrive Series-E system is designed to reduce noise and emissions from vehicles and address the demands for fuel alternatives other than diesel and natural gas.

“Power from the on-board generator is either stored in the batteries or drawn to run the electric traction motor and the drive train,“ said Steve Trichka, vice president and general manager of HybriDrive services for BAE.

BAE will develop and produce the hybrid propulsion technology at its Endicott, N.Y.-based facility and intends to start delivering the drive system to customers in 2014.
