New Triple Hybrid Power Pack Launched

with one comment

Shares in Traction Technology plc (LSE:TRAC) rose sharply on the London Stock Exchange today, after the company announced the launch of its new ‘TRIBRID’ product range for bus operators. TRIBRID is a power pack that has the ability to draw on three separate power sources for use in bus engines.
Traction Technology Plc is a designer and deliverer of environmentally friendly, low emission Series Diesel Electric Hybrid engine systems. The TRIBRID automatically manages power between a diesel power unit, conventional batteries and supercapacitors.
Supercapacitors are very high value capacitors that can store much larger amounts of energy, to the point where they can act like batteries and propel the bus. They are capable of millions of charge and discharge cycles at high currents which make them highly suitable for hybrid vehicles. The TRIBRID, by blending these three sources of energy, optimises the efficiency of the bus, varying the horse power, energy usage or battery capacity of the bus to suit all requirements.

  1. Isn’t it amazing what people can do with a few incentives and a clearer end game; in this case one of energy efficiency. This sounds like a very useful development.
