Volta Power Systems has partnered with Utilimaster, a go-to-market brand of Spartan Fleet Vehicles and Services, a business unit of Spartan Motors, Inc., to provide a complete lithium ion system for their full-line of fleet vehicles. Volta’s complete advanced energy systems solve anti-idling concerns by utilizing automotive grade lithium ion technology to produce auxiliary power in Utilimaster vehicles.
Utilimaster builds and upfits a variety of vehicles including walk-in vans, truck bodies, and cargo vans. Their vehicles serve customers in the parcel delivery, food and beverage, utility, linen and laundry, and retail markets.
“A Volta solution provides the right balance of advanced energy storage for the best cost and return,” said Jack Johnson, Co-Founder of Volta Power Systems. “Our systems can provide a true job site idle elimination, saving fuel and depreciation of the vehicle while providing a better experience for the user and customer.”
The system creates a true idle mitigation solution for any jobsite or work vehicle without compromising performance and in most cases increasing performance over traditional solutions.
“We’re always looking for ways to make work more efficient for our fleet customers. The Volta system will provide our customers with greater flexibility, since Volta generator systems can be applied to any Utilimaster vehicle without adding specialized, vehicle-specific costs,” said Tom Ninneman, President, Spartan Fleet Vehicles and Services.
The system is controlled by a single button with an analog gauge to view available energy at a glance.
“We designed our system to be powerful enough to run almost any tool for an extended period of time,” said Bill Cavanagh, co-founder Volta Power Systems. “With a 58V compressor, end users can even run the vehicle air conditioning for hours without idling.”
The complete system includes an alternator, inverter, storage pack, A/C compressor, control system, and all necessary wiring.
-The energy storage pack is customizable for each application based on power needs ranging between 3kWh to over 100kWh.
-The Volta alternator is one of the strongest on the market and offers a range of 6,000W up to 22,000W.
– The Volta Pure Sine inverter allows 30 amps of power at all times.
Utilimaster recently exhibited their Ford Transit utility upfit, which featured the Volta system at NTEA’s The Work Truck Show, in March. They displayed the vehicle again at the NAFA Institute and Expo in Anaheim, CA, April 24-27.
