Streamlining efficiency in electric mobility 10 May 2024

NORMA Group’s cooling systems are helping to save weight and improve vehicle efficiency with a tailor-made design for an Indian SUV manufacturer and its all electric fleet.

Together with the customer’s engineering team, NORMA’s product development engineers have designed a solution using plastic lines for the cooling system instead of rubber hoses. This switch in material and design choice allows for a significant weight reduction of the cooling water system – equating to approximately 20% – 25%. From 2024 to 2030, around 700,000 vehicles are due to be equipped in the scope of this order. 

Thermal management is an essential aspect of energy management in electric vehicles and helps to optimise battery performance and extend battery life. NORMA’s line systems are used for the thermal management of the power electronics system and help to ensure the optimal operating temperatures of the vehicle. 

“Our products and engineering services for the innovative SUV series underline NORMA Group’s contribution to global technology progress,” says Guido Grandi, CEO of NORMA Group. “eMobility will likely remain the mega trend for the automotive industry for years to come, and we will continue to serve our customers with innovative products and services for all electric, hybrid, fuel cell or hydrogen vehicles. This collaboration is a good example of our strategy to work closely with OEMs and deliver tailored solutions for their innovations.”

From mid-2024 NORMA will also deliver cooling water systems for the power electronics system as part of the same customer’s new battery electric vehicle (BEV) platform.
