Hidria at the CWIEME Exhibition in Berlin

At CWIEME, the world’s leading exhibition for innovative technologies and materials for electric motors held from 10 to 12 May in Berlin, Hidria was again, among the 750 exhibitors, one of the key creators of the global green mobility of the future. With our innovative solutions we once again impressed the visitors and signed quite a few important contracts. Hidria’s exhibition area was visited also by Dr Milan Brglez, President of the Slovenian National Assembly, and Marta Kos Marko, Slovenian Ambassador to Germany.

The contracts we signed are further strengthening our position as an innovative development partner in the segment of high-performance internal combustion engines and electric motor drives.  This means that our innovations for the electric ignition of petrol engines will be installed in high-end vehicles from Audi, BMW and Volkswagen, allowing a significantly lower fuel consumption in these cars.  The fuel consumption will be lower also in hybrid vehicles from Audi, Chrysler and Renault, for which we are developing and manufacturing key parts for the so-called “soft hybrids”.
 
In addition, we are using our competencies to penetrate the world of the increasingly popular electric bicycles. The sales of these are expected to grow significantly in a few years, from 30 million of e-cycles sold in 2012 to nearly 50 million in 2018.  We are already developing innovative solutions for electrical drives for the bicycle brands Scott, KTM, Bianci, Giant, Cannondale and Trek, making a significant contribution to the development of this part of green mobility.
