The project has developed technical solutions for next-generation circulators and engine cooling fan units in the automotive cooling circuit to meet the requirements of future electric or hybrid vehicles. As a result of the development, the duration of the longer-life testing required for these has been significantly reduced.
In addition to technological advances, the project has resulted in the creation of new R&D capabilities and competencies related to electromobility for the members of the consortium, as well as the purchase of new tools and equipment. In addition, the project provided an opportunity for professionals to work in new research areas in Miskolc, and the planned series production of next-generation products in Miskolc can be realized with direct engineering support and the factory can play a leading role in the future in the world.
