One of the world’s biggest international automakers has awarded Rheinmetall another order for electric coolant pumps. The contract is worth a figure in the mid-two-digit million-euro range. The latest order widens the Düsseldorf-based tech enterprise’s share in the new Euro 7 emission standards market.
Production, which already begins next year, is set to run for eight years through to December 2031. The order encompasses nearly two million WUP3 electric coolant pumps. Outperforming the competition, Rheinmetall won the request for tenders thanks to the high quality of its products.
WUP3 coolant pumps are wet rotar pumps, meaning that they are very quiet. With no mechanical seal, moreover, friction is low, resulting in a long service life
Rheinmetall serves this customer as a Tier 1 supplier. Service contracts can be expected to come in the wake of this order, which underscores once again the Group’s ability to grow its share in the emissions reduction market thanks to its high-quality products. With the planned Euro-7 emission standards expected to be tighter than ever starting in 2025, this market segment will only grow in importance.
