Reading Time: 1 minute

boracay e-trikesUS company EnerDel has reached a long-term agreement with Philippine GerWeiss Motors Corp. to supply lithium-ion battery packs for motorised three-wheeled vehicles on Boracay that are used to ferry people around the four-square-mile island of about 12,000 people.

The three-kilowatt-hour battery packs will be able to provide as many as five hours of driving on a single charge. GerWeiss plans to convert up to 500 three-wheelers to electric power by 2016 and says it may expand the programme to other parts of the Philippines.

“EnerDel is extremely excited to work together with GerWeiss Motors Corporation on this ambitious initiative to make public transportation in the Philippines more environmentally conscious,” said Michael Canada, Interim CEO and COO at EnerDel.

“We are confident that with the full support of EnerDel, the vision of Mayor John Yap to make Boracay Island the first all electric vehicle community in the world, starting from the E-Trikes, will be realized in the next few years. Further, this same E-trike program can be replicated all over the Philippines and possibly in our neighbouring countries,” added Sean Gerard G. Villoria, President and CEO of GerWeiss Motor Corporation.

EnerDel, Inc. is a privately-held company headquartered in Indianapolis. It manufactures advanced, lithium-ion batteries and energy storage systems for electric grid, transportation and industrial applications. GerWeiss Motors Corporation, also privately held, is considered one the pioneers and leaders in electric vehicle development in the Philippines. The company designed and developed an e-trike prototype for the $500-million Asian Development Bank e-trike project in the Philippines.
