Remy International, Inc. in 10-Year Supply Agreement to Supply HVH410 Electric Motors to Allison Transmission, Inc. for Use in Commercial Hybrid Truck Program

Remy International, Inc. and Allison Transmission, Inc. signed a long-term electric motor supply agreement. This 10-year agreement will provide Allison with Remy HVH410 electric motors to be used in the new Allison Transmission Commercial Hybrid Truck Program. (Earlier post.)

Allison’s initial efforts are directed toward the use of hybrids in pickup and delivery, shuttle, utility, and refuse applications.

The HVH410 is an advanced electric motor for medium-duty, heavy-duty and off-highway hybrid and electric vehicles based on Remy’s patented High Voltage Hairpin (HVH) technology that provides improved motor performance and cooling effectiveness.

Both companies will be manufacturing in the United States. The Remy HVH410 electric motors will be made in Remy’s Anderson, Indiana manufacturing facility. Allison will be manufacturing the Allison Hybrid Truck Drive system in Indianapolis, Indiana.

In December 2009, Allison Transmission entered into a long-term business agreement with Delphi Automotive Systems, LLC. Under the terms of the agreement, Delphi will supply Allison Transmission with key hybrid drive system components and energy storage systems. (Earlier post.)

It seems to be a copper rotor induction motor no ratings are given. Perhaps it is time to mention that switched reluctance motors are lighter weight and more efficient and require less copper. It seems that the Artemis, Bosch-Rexroth controlled, hydraulic hybrid technology would be cheaper. Or even the NOAX hydraulic motors and transformers could be considered. The NOAX free piston engine could increase the efficiency and abilities of many vehicles in hydraulic hybrid operation. ..HG..
