Denso has opened its Electrification Innovation Centre at its plant in Anjo in Japan.
The supplier develops and produces products for electric vehicles, including inverters and motor generators used in hybrid vehicles and battery packs in mild hybrids.
“As part of our efforts to develop an environment conducive to the development of electrification systems, we have been opening the Hirose Plant and expanding our overseas bases,” said a Denso statement.
The Electrification Innovation Centre features a development building, which will house teams focused on developing production technologies and testing new vehicle systems; a durability building for reliability testing; an outdoor track for testing newly developed products; and a production plant for quickly ramping up a mass production line.
These spaces will enable Denso teams within them to transform new technology ideas into prototypes and customer offerings, manufactured at scale.
At the newly-constructed plant, Denso will also innovate energy conservation technologies, with the aim of achieving zero CO2 emissions within the future site.
