Odyne Corp. Announces Exclusive Agreement with Dueco

May 04, 2007

HAUPPAUGE N.Y. – Odyne Corp. has announced an agreement with Dueco Inc. to develop a proprietary plug-in hybrid-electric vehicle-propulsion system optimized for aerial lift truck applications.

Dueco can incorporate the propulsion system for customers requesting plug-in hybrid-electric aerial lift trucks. Dueco’s customers require trucks with aerial lifts enabling workers to make repairs on equipment like traffic lights, elevated power lines, or telecommunication cables. These customers include utilities, telephone and cable companies, electrical contractors, tree-trimming companies, railroads, the military, and the government.

“In order to operate the vehicle systems during the long time periods that Dueco’s customers perform work at elevated levels, the engine must be idling in a conventionally powered vehicle. Odyne addresses the unique challenge to eliminate engine idling. By installing our technology, Dueco’s trucks can be plugged into the power grid at night, providing enough power to work at job sites with the engine off, thus reducing pollution and fuel use,” said Roger M. Slotkin, CEO of Odyne Corp.
