NEW DELHI, Oct 19: Servotech Power Systems Ltd (SPSL), India’s leading charger manufacturer for Electric Vehicles (EVs) has recently signed two MoUs with IIT Roorkee to develop state-of-the-art rectifier units for CCS2 chargers and onboard EV chargers for 2, 3 and 4 wheelers.
The rectifier unit, an integral component of the CCS2 charger is currently imported. This collaboration will boost domestic manufacturing capabilities and promote the growth of domestic EV industry. The onboard charger for EVs is compact and lightweight charger designed to be mounted directly on two, three and four wheelers, eliminating the need for a separate charger enhancing the convenience and user-friendliness of EVs.
On this occasion Raman Bhatia, MD SPSL said: “The two, three and four wheelers’ charger market of India unfolds as a significant yet untapped territory. With an influx of Chinese components dominating the current scenario, Servotech expands itself as the leading OEM supplier of onboard chargers specifically designed for Indian EVs. The company will now be manufacturing high quality onboard chargers. This development strengthens our commitment towards making Make in India concept a reality in true sense for adoption of sustainable technologies in EV ecosystem.”
Prof. Mukesh Pathak, Principal Investigator at Department of Electrical Engineering, IIT Roorkee said: “We are delighted to partner with Servotech Power Systems to design and develop EV charging technology. Such collaborations are a testament to our commitment to develop innovative and indigenous solutions for Indian EV industry. We believe that the EV charging technology developed through these collaborations will play a key role in accelerating the adoption of EVs as well as will be pivotal in transforming the way we think about transportation and energy consumption in India.”
