Already years ago the congress has developed into a platform also for related industries and topics. In 2019, for example, the focus was on electrification from an overall system viewpoint as well as powertrain solutions for commercial vehicles. The special plus for the participants of the congress and conferences: free access to all technical presentations offered on site. This enables a genuine cross-industry and cross-functional exchange among the technical experts.
On 10th and 11th of July 2019 once again numerous international powertrain experts of commercial vehicles met to discuss topics like:
Synthetic fuels: Varieties, costs, general conditions
Electrification Concepts for light and medium duty vehicles
Potentials of commercial vehicles run on natural gas
Hydrogen mobility for the heavy freight segment
Advanced simulation methods for developers
The conference is under the direction of Thomas Landsherr, Vice President Engineering Powertrain Driveline, Truck & Bus, MAN Truck & Bus AG.
The specialist program was prepared with the support of the program committee, which is made up of top-flight industry experts:
Pascal Hervet, VALEO Powertrain Systems, Amiens
Dr. Klaus Lippitsch, MAGNA Powertrain GmbH & Co. KG, Lannach
Dr. Magnus Mackaldener, Scania CV AB, Södertälje
Dipl.-Ing. Klaus Steinel, ZF Friedrichshafen AG, Friedrichshafen
Dipl.-Ing. Jürgen Vollmar, Daimler AG, Stuttgart
