On June 15, Clean Fuels Ohio partnered with Smart Columbus, to host an event detailing and showcasing the DANNAR Mobile Power Station (MPS), a new first-to-market off-road electric vehicle designed for construction, maintenance, airport, cargo handling and more!
The DANNAR Mobile Power Station® (MPS), the first zero emission off-road vehicle and energy platform of its kind. The American-made MPS is assembled in Muncie, Indiana and is a multi-faceted, energy-efficient workhorse that can clear debris, deliver supplies, tow equipment, and provide days of clean power in an emergency. The platform is the first machine intelligently designed for public works and emergency management professionals. It accommodates all CAT® and Bobcat® attachments, can be operated via an encrypted remote control, and is submergible to four feet of flood water.
The MPS is equipped with multiple BMW i3lithium-ion battery packs on-board its steel ladder frame and large planetary axles from Dana. Other tier one components include a certified hydraulic system from Parker and an optional 60 kW generator from Cummins. The electric traction motor from UQM can pull more than 33,000 pounds. Compared to single-purpose diesel equipment, the MPS is the first off-road equipment manufacturer to provide a fully electric drivetrain that can provide a day’s work on a single charge.
“It costs less than half as much to run the MPS daily versus a 90 hp diesel tractor,” says Gary Dannar, company CEO. “And because it is electric, there are significantly fewer moving parts and nearly zero maintenance.”
