Dana Incorporated earned the New Power Technology Award for its e-Driveline and e-Motion drivetrain solution at this week's 2023 Diesel Progress Summit. This award specifically honors a supplier that has developed a component or technology in support of non-diesel applications, Dana says.
Dana’s fully-electrified driveline for compact construction vehicles helps OEMs enhance the sustainability of their applications while improving energy efficiency and performance. The complete electrified system has been developed to optimize vehicle productivity, reliability, and mobility while also reducing maintenance costs and noise emissions. These features are especially important for machines working in city centers and at construction sites that require zero emissions and reduced noise around the clock, the company says.
“I am very proud of the entire Dana team that was involved in this great success. Being recognized with the New Power Technology Award by Diesel Progress highlights our commitment to a sustainable future and our dedication to delivering a complete e-Powertrain system that leverages the most advanced clean-technology solutions for the off-highway market,” says Jeroen Decleer, senior vice president and president, Off-Highway Drive and Motion Systems.
“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.”
The Diesel Progress Summit Awards are selected by an independent judging panel representing decades of industry expertise and awarded to commercially available powertrains with a focus on the dramatic changes being driven by emission regulations and advances in hybridization, electrification, and other technologies, the company says.
The Dana Spicer HVT1 powersplit transmission was also named a finalist in the Powertrain Product of the Year category.
Dana says it won the Drivetrain Component of the Year Award for its Spicer TE50 powershift transmission at the 2020 Diesel Progress Summit. The company won two awards in 2021: the New Power Technology Award and the Achievement of the Year Award for its Spicer Electrified e-Powertrain.
