De 100% Elektrische Proterra Catalyst Bus met een Actieradius van 412 Kilometer

Geschreven op 12-3-2009 - Erik van Erne. Geplaatst in Energie en Besparing, Vervoer en OV Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

Proterra Catalyst busUpdate 14 oktober 2015: Mooi hoor. De Proterra Catalyst bus reed op een testbaan in South Carolina maar liefst 412 kilometer bij een gemiddelde snelheid van zo’n 50 km/h. Volledig elektrisch.

Proterra wil het battery pack nog met twee cellen uitbreiden tot tien stuks waardoor het vermogen uitkomt op 321 kWh (nu 257 kWh).

Opladen van het batterypack duurt bij snel laden slechts tien minuten en bij normaal laden ook niet echt lang: anderhalf uur.

proterra.jpg12 maart 2009: Mooie bus en het mooiste is wel het feit dat de Proterra bus verkrijgbaar is in een 100% elektrische uitvoering. Geweldig toch? Helemaal zero-emission openbaar vervoer. Dat zet zoden aan de dijk.

Zou voor Nederland toch een geweldige oplossing zijn, zeker gezien het feit dat er hier geen enorme afstanden moeten worden afgelegd. Uiteraard is er in Amerika ook een hele mooie schoolbus: de Proterra BE-35 Battery-Electric School Bus.

Later dit jaar komt Proterra nog met een Shuttle-bus en een 100% elektriche vrachtwagen. Bronnen: ZoomiLife en Proterra

    Montreal’s 1,300-plus bus fleet going all electric by 2025

    Montreal’s public transit system will be entirely electric by 2025, says the Société de transport de Montréal, making the city the first in North America to pledge to use only zero-emission – and zero-noise – vehicles.

    The STM is currently waiting for a shipment of 380 new diesel buses, with a lifespan of about 15 years, said Carl Desrosiers, chief of operations for the STM. But these will be the last of their kind in Montreal.

    In the meantime, the corporation will begin to introduce more efficient, and less polluting buses starting next year.

    According to its action plan, released yesterday, in 2011 it will start testing electric, articulated trolley buses, linked to overhead wires, to be used eventually on some of the busiest bus routes, like Pie IX Blvd., Henri Bourassa Blvd., Saint-Michel Blvd. and Notre Dame St.

    And by 2012, all new buses purchased will be at least minimally hybrid – many of them articulated. But the real change will come in the form of fully-electric buses, tested for Montreal winters and eventually replacing most of the STM’s 1,300 buses over the next 15 years. Montreal Gazette

    The University of Montana Transitions to Clean, Quiet Transit with Proterra

    Associated Students University of Montana’s Office of Transportation (ASUM), one of a select few student-run transit agencies in the U.S., is undertaking a substantial and important step in the history of transportation. By launching two all-electric Proterra vehicles, with this deployment, UM becomes the first campus in the nation to operate zero-emission vehicles in its transit fleet. This move allows ASUM to support University of Montana goals for net-zero carbon emissions, City and County standards for air quality, campus and neighborhoods efforts toward noise reduction, and stewardship of UM student fees through overall cost-reduction in transportation services.The launch boldly seeks to meet aspirations for cleaner air, more sustainable methods of transit, and deployment of superior technology to serve basic transit necessity around the community of Missoula.

    Proterra Electric Buses Up To 8x More Efficient Than Their CNG-Powered Cousins

    A new study by the National Renewable Energy Lab tabulated data collected by Proterra electric buses operated by Foothill Transit in southern California and other buses in the Foothill fleet that were powered by compressed natural gas. The results show the Proterra buses were up to 8 time more efficient than their CNG powered cousins.

    When operated on the same route, average fuel economy for the CNG buses came to 2.1 miles per diesel gallon equivalent. By contrast, the Proterra electric buses had an observed MPDGe of 17.35 — more than 8 times higher. Cost of fuel per mile worked out to be 41 cents for the electric buses and 50 cents for the CNG-powered vehicles.

    On balance, the Proterra electric buses are operating well in commercial service and equal or exceed the expectations of the transportation authority, which plans to transition to 100% electric buses by 2030. Another entry in the good news column is that the cost of the Proterra buses has declined by more than one third since Foothill Transportation bought its first Proterra buses in 2009. They cost $1,200,000 a piece back then versus $789,000 each today.

    All-Electric Proterra Bus Travels Record 1,100 Miles On a Single Charge

    US-based electric bus manufacturer Proterra upgraded its 40-foot Catalyst E2, now called ‘Catalyst E2 max‘, with a massive 660 kWh battery pack and brought it to the track at the Navistar Proving Grounds in New Carlisle, Indiana, to test it.

    Unsurprisingly with that insane amount of battery capacity in the vehicle, they beat the record for the most distance traveled on a single charge by an electric vehicle.

    The Proterra Catalyst E2 max traveled 1,101.2 miles before its battery pack was depleted.

    University of Georgia Orders 20 Proterra Catalyst Electric Buses: One Of The Largest E-Bus Fleets In The US

    Electric bus maker Proterra announced the University of Georgia has ordered 20 of its Catalyst E2 buses. Upon deployment, the university will have one of the largest electric bus fleets in the U.S.

    The 40-foot Catalyst E2 buses will displace more than 2.5 million gallons of diesel over the vehicles’ 12-year lifespan and eliminate over 4.5 million pounds of carbon emissions annually, Proterra says.

    University of Georgia buses have an average daily ridership of about 40,000, offering free rides for students, faculty and visitors around Athens, Ga. The university received a $10 million grant to evaluate and test electric buses — the state of Georgia underwent a “similar testing and review process,” selecting Proterra as a statewide e-bus vendor. The university procured the buses under a statewide contract.

    Proterra’s Catalyst E2 buses feature the manufacturer’s DuoPower drivetrain, which it introduced in 2017 and later put to the test on some of Utah’s steepest roads. The drivetrain features two electric motors which deliver 510 horsepower and can propel the bus up a 26 percent grade.

    The University of Georgia estimates energy costs for operating the South Carolina-built buses will equal less than $10/day per bus, while energy costs for a similar diesel bus total $90/day per bus. Proterra’s buses are expected to arrive on campus during the 2019-20 academic year.

    San Francisco International Airport Gets Proterra Catalyst E2 Electric Buses And Chargers

    Proterra announced that San Francisco International Airport (SFO) has purchased six 40’ Proterra Catalyst E2 electric buses and three 60 kW Proterra plug-in chargers, joining a growing list of airports across North America transitioning to electric buses for airport ground transportation. The new battery-electric bus fleet will reduce Bay Area emissions and support SFO’s goal of carbon neutrality by 2021 while cutting its bus operating costs.

    As one of the fastest-growing airports in the U.S., SFO has ambitious plans in place to reduce its carbon footprint. SFO’s Five-Year Strategic Plan sets goals of carbon neutrality across airport-controlled operations by 2021 and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 50 percent from a 1990 baseline. Part of that plan includes the creation of a Clean Vehicle Policy to promote the adoption and deployment of low emission vehicles by both airport departments and ground transportation providers. The new battery-electric Proterra Catalyst buses will replace six diesel buses in its current operating fleet and will eliminate more than 23 million pounds of greenhouse gas tailpipe emissions over the 12-year life of the vehicles. SFO expects to purchase additional battery-electric buses to replace its CNG vehicles, for a greener, more modern fleet.

    The new electric buses will integrate batteries that are designed and manufactured down the street from the airport at Proterra’s Silicon Valley headquarters in Burlingame, California. With 440 kWh of battery capacity on board, the buses will be part of SFO’s fleet that currently provides buses to shuttle passengers between the terminals, long-term parking garages and other airport locations along daily routes.

    Proterra To Go Public Via Merger With ArcLight

    Proterra, the U.S. manufacturer of electric buses, has announced its initial public offering through a merger with investment firm ArcLight Clean Transportation. Existing investor Daimler Trucks backs the deal.

    The IPO is expected to raise approximately $648 million for Proterra and an enterprise value of $1.6 billion. The partners aim to close the transaction in the first half of the year. The stock is then expected to trade on the Nasdaq under the ticker symbol PTRA. According to Proterra, company president Jack Allen will also lead the new company.

    The transaction will also be flanked by a $415 million capital increase by key investors (a so-called PIPE). The backers include Daimler Trucks. The German group’s commercial vehicle division is not only an existing investor but has also had a strategic partnership with Proterra since 2018.

    The manufacturer intends to invest the fresh capital in its growth. Specifically, Proterra cites the expansion of its R&D activities and its battery program’s expansion as goals. With the latter program, the U.S.-based company aims to reduce the cost of next-generation batteries while designing them to be suitable for all commercial vehicle segments’ electrification. To date, Proterra is known to be active primarily in the electric bus market.

    “This transaction enables Proterra to take the next step towards our mission of advancing EV technology to deliver the world’s best-performing commercial vehicles,” says Jack Allen. Proterra’s latest financials read as follows: For 2020, the company reported “expected revenue” of $193 million and a backlog worth $750 million. Gross margin has increased 26 per cent in three years, according to the manufacturer.

    Proterra, meanwhile, has built its business on three pillars: ‘Proterra Powered’ offers battery systems and electrification solutions for commercial vehicle manufacturers; ‘Proterra Transit’ is said player in the North American electric transit bus market, and ‘Proterra Energy’ specializes in turnkey charging and energy management solutions. The company claims to have “produced and delivered more than 300 megawatt-hours of battery systems, more than 550 heavy-duty electric transit buses and installed 54 megawatts of charging systems”. Proterra operates manufacturing facilities in California and South Carolina. It also has a research and development lab in Silicon Valley. A few weeks ago, the manufacturer announced it had opened a new battery production line at its California plant in Los Angeles County.

    Proterra Electric Bus At National Drive Electric Week Connecticut Event

    Tis the season for National Drive Electric Week! Bridgeport, Connecticut’s event had a special guest. Proterra brought its electric bus and The EV Club of Connecticut’s Paul Braren was there to cover it all. Paul said that this was his first time seeing an electric bus at a National Drive Electric Week.

    The bus driver explained that the bus was charged at night and that it runs 9–12 hours, a full shift. The driver also touched upon an issue with electric buses and how it was solved. “The bus is quiet, so if somebody’s jogging or something and they don’t see it, they can’t hear the bus. So the driver can put on the crowd control and it’ll make some noise.” It’s a slight buzzing noise. Another feature the bus has is: when the driver is turning, there’s an audio sound that says, “Bus is turning.” See more in the video above.
