Siemens has completed the acquisition of Heliox, a leading company in the field of DC fast charging for e-bus and e-truck fleets and electric passenger cars. With the acquisition of the Dutch-based company, which employs around 330 people, Siemens is adding to its existing e-charging portfolio from 40 kilowatt (kW) to megawatt charging, as well as depot and fleet solutions.
In the electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure market, these DC fast charging solutions for e-bus and e-truck fleets are the fastest growing segment.
The deal also expands Siemens’ digital and software e-mobility offering with Heliox’s charging monitoring and energy management services, thereby ensuring the efficient operation of charging infrastructures for its customers, especially in Europe and North America. The parties did not disclose the amount of the acquisition.
The e-mobility business of Siemens’ Smart Infrastructure division sells a wide range of IoT-enabled hardware, software and services worldwide for both AC and DC charging, from 11 kW capacity up to 1 megawatt charging.
Siemens Zrt. also offers complete e-mobility solutions in Hungary, whether it is the construction of a complete EV charging infrastructure or operational optimization with charging and fleet management software. In addition, the domestic portfolio recently included remote diagnostics and express spare parts supply services were also expanded.
