Modine Expands Manufacturing and Engineering Presence in Europe for EVantage Product Line
Modine, a renowned leader in engineering and manufacturing vehicular thermal management solutions, is set to expand its production of the EVantage™ thermal management systems product family to Europe. With the growing global commercial electric vehicle (EV) market in mind, Modine aims to support European manufacturers by manufacturing battery thermal management and electronics cooling systems at its facility in Pontevico, Italy, starting in 2024.
Gina Maria Bonini, Vice President and General Manager of Advanced Thermal Systems at Modine, expressed her excitement about this expansion, stating, “This expansion allows Modine to more directly serve European manufacturers with thermal management solutions that address the challenges faced by EV platform developers everywhere. We are thrilled to play a growing role in the electrification of commercial vehicles in the European market.”
The Modine EVantage suite, which includes the EVantage Battery Thermal Management System (BTMS) and Electronics Cooling Package (ECP), is designed to maintain optimal temperature ranges for EV batteries, traction motors, and power electronics. By providing high-precision temperature control, these systems enhance performance, durability, range, and safety across all operating conditions for commercial and heavy-duty electric vehicles.
What sets the EVantage suite apart is its ability to maximize heating and cooling while minimizing power draw, all within a compact form factor. This is achieved through the combination of state-of-the-art, proprietary heat exchanger technology, electronic components, and programmable smart control electronics. These EV thermal management systems offer complete solutions that can be tailored to the needs of commercial, specialty, and purpose-built electric vehicle platforms.
With over 100 years of thermal management experience, Modine is well-equipped to provide standard and purpose-built solutions that meet the needs of customer applications across the commercial vehicle segment. The EVantage thermal management systems are available as plug-and-play systems for commercial, specialty, and off-highway EV customers. They are particularly suited for zero-emission transit and coach buses, specialty vehicles, off-highway machines, and trucks, including last-mile delivery vans. Customers have the option to choose between standard systems or custom-designed solutions that fit specific cooling needs and space constraints.
Modine ensures the reliability and durability of its EVantage systems by subjecting them to rigorous testing. These systems are built to withstand challenging conditions, providing reliability for harsh environments and high-vibration applications.
Modine’s expansion into Europe reflects its commitment to engineering a cleaner and healthier world. With more than 11,000 employees working globally, the company delivers trusted systems and solutions that improve air quality and conserve natural resources. Its Climate Solutions and Performance Technologies segments focus on reducing energy and water consumption, lowering harmful emissions, and enabling cleaner running vehicles and environmentally friendly refrigerants.
