US manufacturer Dana has picked up the New Power Technology Award for its e-Driveline and e-Motion drivetrain at this week’s 2023 Diesel Progress Summit in Louisville, Kentucky.
Dana said its fully-electrified driveline for compact construction vehicles helped original equipment manufacturers enhance the sustainability of their applications while improving energy efficiency and performance. Its electrified system cut emissions and noise at city construction sites.
The one-day summit, which this year had a “technologies of transition” theme, focused on electric motors, battery technology, fuel cells, and “balancing the energy transition for off-highway machinery used in construction, agriculture, mining, forestry and marine, as well as on-highway commercial vehicles”.
Ohio-based Dana, which reported more than $10 billion of sales last year, says its e-Powertrain “leverages the most advanced clean-technology solutions for the off-highway market”.
“By leveraging our deep knowledge and experience in mechanical and electric components, integrated with controls software, Dana is providing our customers with innovative solutions that deliver class-leading efficiency and reliability,” off-highway drive and motion systems president, Jeroen Decleer, said.
