Eberspächer opens exhaust technology plant in Portugal

After a construction period of only ten months, Eberspächer opened a new exhaust technology plant in Portugal. In a ceremonial act, the official start of production for exhaust systems was inaugurated at the Tondela site in September. On 27,500 square meters the supplier manufactures complete exhaust systems as well as gasoline particulate filters and catalytic converters for European automobile manufacturers in Spain, Portugal and Northern Morocco. By 2020, the plant is scheduled to achieve an annual production capacity of 2.5 million exhaust system components at full production levels. In 2017, Eberspächer will generate around 120 local jobs; in the medium term the plan is to increase the workforce to as many as 550 employees. Recently acquired orders necessitated expansion of the European production capacity. Eberspächer last enlarged its production network with a plant for passenger car exhaust technology in Oradea, Romania. Further information

„Safety first“ with autonomous driving

Automated vehicles require one thing above all: reliability and stable electrical systems. To secure safety-relevant functions such as braking and electrical steering assistance, is one of the main requirements for tomorrow´s mobility. The solution: Intelligent switching systems from Eberspaecher, that separate electrical system sections safely in case of voltage surges or sags. The Automotive Controls division offers this safety for autonomous vehicles up to future level 5 requirements. The Autonomous Driving Safety Switch is used in 12 volt electrical systems with at least two energy sources. In fully automated vehicles with high-voltage/low-voltage on-board circuits, the Battery and Boardnet Safety Module provides an intelligent distribution of current and ensures a reliable power supply for safety-relevant components. The systems advantages are an ASIL D classified combination of a microcontroller and system basis chip as well as the customer-specific control software. Further information
