Featured Products

Power Module

Power Module

A central part of EKU’s electrification and automation platform that supports mild hybrid initiatives. The battery has the ability to start large engines of up to 120 liters and is both scalable and customizable in voltage for industrial applications.

Vulcan

Vulcan

A smart diesel or natural gas-fueled heater solution. With up to 70 kW of controlled heating power, it defrosts equipment and guarantees system operation for a wide range of temperature ranges and extreme environments. 

Engine Standby Controller (ESC)

Engine Standby Controller (ESC)

A fully integrated start-stop solution for industrial processes that replaces the existing battery while adding an external fluids circulation and heating system to the powertrain. The use of the ESC leads to the elimination of idle time, high fuel savings, carbon emission reduction, and lower maintenance costs on the engine.

Sophia

Sophia

A smart automation cloud platform that acts as an analytic solution for use in field operations and assists with strategic technology management, enabling KPI-based state monitoring that accelerates the overall improvement process.

Electrification & Automation Platform Projects

Fleet Automation

An automation software solution project at EKU using cutting-edge technology to both monitor and act as a communication channel for accurate and actionable data. Contributing to faster, smarter, safer fleet operations and fleet maintenance.

Hybridization (E-Fuel)

An electrohydraulic drive unit for direct electrification of mobile industrial machinery. E-Fuel connects the machine to the local grid and replaces the need for a diesel engine for onsite work operations. 

Fuel Optimization (Fely)

An advisor system based on the Sophia semi-automation platform focused on optimizing fuel consumption and distributing the engines life consumption during operations.
