Schwarze Industries Partners to Develop Electric Sweeper for Air Force
Schwarze Industries, Huntsville, AL, has partnered with Enova Systems, a leading innovator of electric vehicle and hybrid electric vehicle solutions for medium and heavy-duty trucks and busses, to develop a fully electric green sweeper for the United States Air Force.
“We’re excited about the partnership,” said Raymond Massey, director of sales and marketing for Schwarze. “We’ll be sending over an A7000 for the project, and the hope is that this sweeper will become the standard Air Force spec for all sweeping applications.”
The fully electric green sweeper will be powered by the Enova 120kW all-electric drive system coupled with a hydraulic pump, and will use hydrogen produced by a solar electric array. This drive system will be paired with Schwarze’s regenerative air sweeper design. Production will take place at the Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in Honolulu, where it will be the first advanced sweeper technology used by the USAF.
