UITP Global Public Transport Summit 2017

May 15 – 17, 2017 - Montreal’s Convention Center

Prevost is a leading manufacturer of premium intercity touring coaches and the world leader in the production of conversion coaches for high-end motorhome and specialty conversion. At Prevost, exceeding your expectations is a passion - whether it’s finding new and smarter solutions or putting the finishing touches on our unique designs, we stand apart through our relentless pursuit of excellence. 

On display at the UITP Summit will be a new electric cooling package, introduced by Prevost this year, and the only such system available for a powertrain of up to 500Hp.   Cooling is taken to a whole new level where the system takes into account the amount of cooling needed, where it is required, the power needed for the task and how this power will be generated.

The innovative and fully integrated system was designed entirely in-house at Prevost.  It eliminates the belt-driven fan, thereby reducing the engine horsepower required to operate. The end result is up to 4% improvement in fuel economy, better reliability/less downtime, enhanced performance and potential decrease in maintenance costs. 

The drive includes eight fans total; six for the radiator and for the Charge Air Cooler (CAC).  Both the CAC and the radiator fans are split into two independent groups driven by a different multiplex module for complete redundancy to avoid coach down situation related to fan issues. The true beauty of the system is the vehicle can operate with only 1 of the 2 systems functioning.

Prevost’s electric fan drive development was made possible by an in-house integration of all systems including a new electrical architecture. The new fans offer a progressive speed that is adjusted on demand from the engine cooling system. Since they are not driven by the engine, more power is available at the wheels. 

Product Management Director, Abel Zacharie had this to say about the new fan drive, “Again we demonstrate what sound innovation really is by taking to market a solution that addresses the fundamentals of coach operation in terms of fuel economy, maintainability, dependability, and reliability.”
