Liebherr-Aerospace to Develop Thermal Management Capabilities for Satellites

An innovative team to enter a new market

Gaining a partnership with European space manufacturer Thales Alenia Space and Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales (CNES), Liebherr is entering a new market: The Liebherr-Aerospace team is developing thermal management capabilities for a Mechanically Pumped Loop (MPL) cooling system for satellites.

"Manufacturing evaporators and condensers for future MPL cooling systems will be a demanding assignment: As part of an innovative MPL, they will be in space for at least 15 years without maintenance. This means that the evaporators and condensers have to be completely free from leakage as well as extremely reliable and robust to operate flawlessly during this period at high heat-exchange performances."

Francis Carla, Managing Director and Chief Technical Officer of Liebherr-Aerospace & Transportation SAS
