Vitesco Technologies receives 2 billion euros in BMS orders

Vitesco Technologies, an electric powertrain supplier, has received over 2 billion euros (about $1.94 billion) in orders for its BMS products.

“We have signed contracts with global high-volume manufacturers, with premium car makers and with start-up companies—in all relevant markets,” says Vitesco Executive Board Member Thomas Stierle.

The company says one of its contracts is for a wireless battery control unit designed for 400 and 800 V systems. “This particular innovative solution reduces the amount of cabling inside the battery, saving space and improving range capacity through the use of either a larger battery or by reducing the size and weight of the battery that would otherwise be used.”

The company also says it is working on a battery cell supervising method, and is prepared to fit its functional BMS parts into other control units.

“For [battery cell supervising], Vitesco Technologies is currently developing a new procedure for actively balancing cells (hence: active cell balancing), which can bring another efficiency gain in the order of several percent,” says Head of Product Line Battery Rodrigo Peres.
