On June 19, Greater Indiana Clean Cities partnered with the City of Fort Wayne, to host a demo event for City Utilities and Publics Works showcasing the DANNAR Mobile Power Station (MPS), a new first-to-market off-road electric vehicle designed for a variety of tasks including construction, maintenance, airport, and cargo.
The DANNAR Mobile Power Station® (MPS), the first zero emission off-road vehicle and energy platform of its kind. The American-made MPS is assembled in Muncie, Indiana and is a multi-faceted, energy-efficient equipment that can clear debris, deliver supplies, tow equipment, and provide days of clean power in an emergency. The platform is the first machine intelligently designed for public works and emergency management professionals. It accommodates all CAT® and Bobcat® attachments, can be operated via an encrypted remote control, and can be used in up to four feet of flood water.
The MPS is equipped with multiple BMW i3lithium-ion battery packs on-board its steel ladder frame and large planetary axles from Dana. Other tier one components include a certified hydraulic system from Parker and an optional 60 kW generator from Cummins. The electric traction motor from UQM can pull more than 33,000 pounds. Compared to single-purpose diesel equipment, the MPS is the first off-road equipment manufacturer to provide a fully electric drivetrain that can provide a day’s work on a single charge.
