Semcon receives EUR 8.7m engine optimisation contract from German firm

ABR Staff Writer Published 20 September 2011

Semcon is expanding its position in the fields of engines and transmissions with a new order from a German automotive manufacturer for EUR 8.7m.

Under the project, Semcon's Swedish organization and its partners in Sweden will carry out engine optimization for various car models for the German carmaker.

Semcon business area manager of Automotive R&D Stefan Ohlsson said future demands to cut CO2 emissions means that all auto manufacturers are focusing on development in this area, and this order will strengthen our position in one of the company's focus areas.

The project will start immediately and run until 2012, with an option to extend.

Earlier this year, Semcon also received orders worth SEK 55m from another German auto manufacturer.

The company said these projects will run for three years and involve developing cooling circuits for the auto manufacturers' various engine alternatives on a new global platform.
