Multi-million order for fuel cell technology

12. June 2023

Rheinmetall has won a new order for hundreds of thousands of CWA2000 highvoltage electric coolant pumps. The order is worth a figure in the two-digit million-euro range. Rheinmetall is a Tier 1 supplier of the customer. Production begins in 2026, with deliveries spaced over a six-year period. The Düsseldorf based tech enterprise won the order in the face of competition from well-known rivals.

The customer, one of the world’s largest internationally operating automakers, has ordered the high-voltage electric coolant pumps for use in its 800V architecture. The component is designed as a glandless pump which, due to the lack of a mechanical seal, ensures low friction and a long service life. Moreover, any leakage into the electronics or the environment is prevented, guaranteeing maximum safety for highvoltage e-motors and inverters. In addition, the internal electronics regulate the necessary cooling capacity via an intelligent thermal management, enhancing both operating range and passenger comfort.
