KAMAZ and Rosatom will work on the development of electric transport

RNS – KAMAZ and Rosatom have signed an agreement for cooperation in the field of  electric transport development at St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, as stated by KAMAZ. The agreement was signed by the general director of KAMAZ Sergei Kogogin and his counterpart at the state enterprise Rosatom Alexei Likhachev.

Rosatom will develop and supply electric power storage systems for electric transport, systems to generate electric energy on fuel cells and power electronics to KAMAZ, in addition to supply of products and services in the field of automated process control systems for manufacturing enterprises, storage and processing techniques for large amounts of data and composite materials, within the frame of the agreement. Rosatom also intends to expand the supply of its systems for the purification of exhaust gases for vehicles with internal combustion engines and develop new systems, which comply with Euro-6. Rosatom currently supplies KAMAZ with purification systems for gas engines only.

“At present, KAMAZ applies Japanese energy storage systems on advanced electric transport models. In turn, our fuel company TVEL has built up a positive experience on the production of an energy storage system for intra-plant electric transport. We plan to broaden this expertise and create similar energy storage systems for passenger electric transport systems, which are being developed by KAMAZ” – Likhachev said.
