UQM Technologies announced the receipt of a new order from RAPAC Communication and Infrastructure for PowerPhase HD 950T electric drive systems to be installed in Humvee military vehicles in Israel.

The PowerPhase HD 950T (high torque) system delivers 950 N·m peak torque, 400 N·m continuous from a 145 kW peak, 100 kW continuous motor.
RAPAC CEO Ron Oren commented on the ongoing strategic partnership with UQM, “The RAPAC vehicle applications are designed for the most demanding environments in the world and the UQM products have proven themselves as exceptional products in the time we have demonstrated them out in the field. UQM delivers the highest quality and the most technologically advanced electric drive motors and controllers in the industry. We look forward to continuing to represent UQM products in this part of the world.”
Joe Mitchell, UQM President and CEO, said, “We are pleased to see RAPAC’s forward progress on electric projects. This is another successful example of UQM’s execution on our global diversification strategy.”
