Today, on the 2nd of June, 2017 at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum the agreement was signed on the cooperation in e-transport development in the Russian Federation. The agreement was signed by Director General of KAMAZ Sergey Kogogin and Director General of ROSATOM Alexei Likhachev.
In the framework of the cooperation the parties are ready to develop and supply to KAMAZ the energy accumulation systems for e-transport, systems for generation of electricity based on fuel cells, power electronics and other products. Also, ROSATOM is ready to supply APCS products and services for industrial companies, technologies for big data storage and processing, and composite materials for KAMAZ. Besides, ROSATOM intend to expand deliveries of own exhaust gas clean-up systems for combustion engines (now only systems for gas-driven engines are supplied) and develop new Euro-6 systems.
“Today, while developing electric buses as new products, KAMAZ is sticking to development of ecologically safe transport for Russian regions. Joining efforts with ROSATOM, we will be able to build maximum efficient passenger transport which becomes the next step in imports phase-out and application of latest domestic developments and technologies,” Sergey Kogogin, KAMAZ Directior General, noted.
“Presently, for promising e-transport models, KAMAZ uses Japanese energy accumulation systems. In turn, ROSATOM’s Fuel Company TVEL has accumulated positive experience in producing accumulation system for the in-plant e-transport. We plan to expand these competences and create cheaper systems of energy accumulation for passenger e-transport which are developed by KAMAZ,” Alexei Likhachev said.
