Heliox, a supplier of DC charging systems for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles, entered into a supply agreement with Paccar Parts to support the rollout of Paccar electric vehicles.
Heliox will supply mobile 25kW and 50kW chargers to Paccar dealers and customers who are building their electric truck fleets. The mobile chargers can be monitored and controlled via cloud-based open charge point protocol, and are lightweight, transportable, and often use existing infrastructure.
Efficient installation costs and limited construction and infrastructure requirements, make the Heliox mobile chargers an “ideal choice” for truck sales support as well as early-stage fleet deployment and testing, company officials said in a press release.
“This is a significant step for Heliox in expanding its operations beyond buses,” said Dave Aspinwall, Heliox U.S. president.
Heliox is conducting ongoing interoperability testing with new medium- to heavy-duty vehicles ensure equipment is consistent and reliable.
“Kenworth and Peterbilt electric vehicles are being delivered across North America. The trucking industry is gaining momentum with this rapidly evolving technology,” said Laura Bloch, Paccar Parts general manager and Paccar vice president. “Heliox works closely with our customers to meet their charging needs as we ramp up electric vehicle deployment.”
