Servotech Power Systems Ltd. inks MoU with IIT Roorkee to Develop Rectifier Units of CCS2 Chargers and Onboard Chargers for Electric Vehicles
New Delhi 19 October 2023: Servotech Power Systems Ltd. (SPSL), India’s leading EV charger manufacturer 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 is an integral component of the CCS2 charger that is currently imported. This collaboration will boost domestic manufacturing capabilities and promote the growth of the domestic EV industry. The onboard charger for electric vehicles is a compact and lightweight charger designed to be mounted directly on two-, three—, and four-wheelers, eliminating the need for a separate charger and enhancing the convenience and user-friendliness of electric vehicles. The onboard charger developed through this collaboration will pave the way for Servotech to expand as a leading OEM supplier for the two-, three– and four-wheeler charger market.
On this Occasion Raman Bhatia, MD of Servotech Power Systems 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 has expanded itself as the leading OEM supplier of onboard chargers specifically designed for Indian electric vehicles.
The Company will now be manufacturing high-quality onboard chargers. This development strengthens our commitment to making the Make in India concept a reality in the true sense for the adoption of sustainable technologies in the EV ecosystem. Furthermore, our collaboration with an esteemed organization like IIT Roorkee is instrumental in reinforcing our goal of making India self-reliant as well as making Servotech a leading global leader of EV Industry”.
Prof. Mukesh Pathak, Principal Investigator in the Department of Electrical Engineering at IIT Roorkee expresses his views on this partnership, “We are delighted to partner with Servotech Power Systems to design and develop EV charging technology. These collaboration are a testament to our commitment to developing innovative and indigenous solutions for the Indian EV industry. We believe that the EV charging technology developed through these collaborations will play a key role in accelerating the adoption of electric vehicles as well as will be pivotal in transforming the way we think about transportation and energy consumption in India.”
