Technotrans has received a major order from a "well-known European electric bus manufacturer" for the series production of battery thermal management systems (BTMS). The contract volume is in the high single-digit million euro range.

The mobile solution will be used in several new electric bus series, the German company announced. Technotrans will supply a total of three production sites in France and the Czech Republic. Production and delivery of the first components will be completed this year.

The supplier does not specify which vehicle manufacturer has placed Technotrans’ largest order to date in the road segment. Based on the information that it will plants in France and the Czech Republic, there are two possible candidates. From this year, Daimler Buses will build the eCitaro as a twelve-metre-long solo bus and an 18-metre-long articulated bus version at its Ligny-en-Barrois plant in eastern France. And in the Czech Republic, more precisely in Holýšov in the Pilsen region, Daimler Buses produces body parts and bodies for Mercedes-Benz and Setra buses. From 2028, the entire body shell for all Daimler buses that are assembled in the Mannheim, Neu-Ulm and Ligny-en-Barrois plants will be produced in Holýšov. However, Iveco Bus also has plants in the two countries mentioned, in Vysoké Mýto in the Czech Republic and in Rorthais in France.

According to Technotrans, this is a customised solution for the customer, as the collaboration has already begun with the development and qualification of the prototype. “In a close and cooperative exchange between the two engineering departments, the thermal management specialist developed a BTMS tailored precisely to the e-bus series,” it writes.

“With this successful collaboration, we are once again demonstrating our expertise in the field of e-mobility. technotrans has the engineering and production capacities to make an important long-term contribution to the decarbonisation of the transport sector together with our customer,” says Technotrans CEO Michael Finger. “At the same time, we are further expanding our strong position in this dynamic future market and generating sustainable growth as a result.”
