A significant amount of work is being done to advance the technology of gears specifically for use in electric vehicles. No longer hidden by the noise of the internal combustion engine, the transmission has taken center stage as the noisiest component in most electric-driven cars.
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries EMEA—Duisburg Branch today announced a new contract with global software provider Energy Exemplar to support their sales, business development, and project development teams. The branch office based in Duisburg, Germany focuses on the growth of MHI’s energy transition-related business, supporting the decarbonization of industry.
