AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, Stealth Power announced that the Fire Department of New York (FDNY) has ordered an additional 184 ambulances with the company’s Vehicle Power System, bringing the total number to 500 by the end of 2021.
FDNY responds to almost 2 million emergencies every year and serves more than 8.5 million people within a 302-square-mile radius. For rapid response times, ambulances are on standby. Before integrating Stealth Power’s Vehicle System, ambulances could idle for up to 12 hours each day.
“As the largest and busiest emergency response fleet in the country, we’re thrilled to support FDNY in their transition to a low carbon fleet,” said Devin Scott, Chief Executive Officer of Stealth Power. “Stealth Power keeps critical equipment on with engines off, reducing fuel use up to 30% every month and helping large fleets transition towards a fully electric future."
The leader in idle mitigation and clean energy for fleets with complex power needs, installations include Stealth Power’s System Intelligence platform, powered by Microsoft Azure. Stealth Power’s solution incorporates sensors that collect data and sends it to Azure for safe and secure storage. Microsoft Power BI dashboards allow clients to easily manage the operational efficiency of individual vehicles or a whole fleet.
“We share Stealth Power’s commitment to a clean, efficient future informed by data,” said Kirk Lonbom, Director, Public Safety and Justice Strategy, US State and Local Government at Microsoft. “Stealth Power’s Fleet Intelligence platform powered by Microsoft Azure demonstrates the real-world value of their idle mitigation technology and we’re pleased to see continued adoption of their solutions.”
Since 2016, Stealth Power has helped FDNY save millions in fuel and maintenance costs while reducing CO2 emissions by over 100,000,000 lbs., meeting the state’s reduced emissions mandates and improving New York City’s air quality.
