ORCA will be presented at the International Symposium on Heavy Vehicles Transport Technology (HVTT) on 4 October, 2018 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
Session: Electrification and hybridization
Date & time: 4 October, 14:00 to 15:40
Speaker: Steven Wilkins, TNO
Location: HVTT15, MEES Room
The HVTT will take place on 2-5 October and its programme comprises 3 plenary sessions, 24 parallel sessions, 2 young talent sessions, 8 side events and a technical visit.
On 4 October, in the parallel session on “Electrification and hybridization” from 14:00 to 15:40 the ORCA project results will be presented by Steven Wilkins (TNO). The presentation will provide details on the ORCA approach towards developing a powertrain for hybrid bus and truck, with 30 km full electric range, which consumes less fuel compared to conventional vehicles on the market, while costing no more than a conventional diesel-powered truck or bus.
In the same session the audience will also be able to gain insight into electric road systems for hybrid heavy duty vehicles and into electric traction systems in comparison to the standard diesel one.
On 4 October, prior to the public presentation, the ORCA Advisory Board will meet and discuss the project developments. The meeting is open to invitees only.
