EnerDel Delivers Hybrid Power System To Army Corps Of Engineers For Evaluation

EnerDel Inc. has delivered its Mobile Hybrid Power System (MHPS) to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Engineer Research and Development Center (USACE-ERDC) in Champaign, Ill.

EnerDel's MHPS-80, as delivered to the USACE-ERDC, features an onboard charging generator, lithium-ion battery storage system, power inverter and DC input for wind and solar power systems. It is self-contained in a military-grade custom steel trailer equipped with an automatic fire suppression system.

The USACE-ERDC has commissioned, and is currently validating, the MHPS-80 at its simulated forward operating base. The military is turning to hybrid power systems to cut down on the reliance on diesel-fueled generators at its forward operating bases.
