Posted on March 10, 2010

Voith Turbo, producer of heavy vehicle drive systems, selected Maxwell Technologies Inc.'s 125-volt BOOSTCAP ultracapacitor modules for braking energy recuperation and torque assist in low-emission, fuel-efficient, hybrid-electric transit bus drive systems.

Voith and Maxwell have entered into a strategic supply agreement through which Maxwell is Voith's exclusive supplier of ultracapacitor modules assembled in the U.S. to meet local content requirements.

"Voith has booked various hybrid system orders for the California based transit bus manufacturer, Gillig LLC," said Robert Wiss, Voith Turbo's vice president, road division, for the U.S. market. "Gillig has also completed system tests at the Altoona Bus Research and Testing Facility, a test center for new model buses and technology and I'm very pleased with the overall durability and performance the system has shown."
