“We are following a system approach: That means integration of power electronics – one system development and full inter-action between compressor and power electronics.”
Malek Chakri, Program Manager
In the early 2000’s, we started cooperations with major automotive and bus manufacturers with the aim to use motorized compressors, including the dedicated power electronics to provide clean compressed air to the vehicle fuel cell stacks.
“We prepare the future and develop this technology also for commercial and construction vehicles, long haul trucks, buses, maritime, heavy duty railway vehicles and aerospace applications.”
Willem de Grooth, Business Development Manager
Our production sites are or will be located in Europe as well as in China to sustain the dynamic growth of fuel cell market and to be as close as possible to our customers.
We have now entered into our first serial production of electrical compressor for automotive fuel cell vehicles and we are planning to localize and start with the first assembly of serial units in China in the coming years.
