Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Roorkee has entered into a partnership with Servotech Power Systems Ltd (SPSL) to develop onboard e-chargers for battery-operated two-, three-, and four-wheelers, according to a statement released by SPSL on Wednesday. Additionally, another memorandum of understanding (MoU) between SPSL and IIT Roorkee is focused on creating rectifier units that are currently imported and utilized in the combined charging system (CCS2) chargers.
These agreements aim to bolster domestic manufacturing capabilities, fostering growth within the domestic electric vehicle (EV) industry. The CCS2 charger’s rectifier unit plays a crucial role, and its development is seen as a significant step in enhancing India’s EV manufacturing capacity.
Raman Bhatia, Managing Director of Servotech Power Systems, emphasized the company’s commitment to the “Make in India” initiative, highlighting the move towards manufacturing high-quality onboard chargers.
