Tecnogen, Powertronix and Volvo Penta, Volvo Trucks Italia and Volvo Construction Equipment Italia, together at ECOMONDO – ITALIAN EXHIBITION GROUP

From 7 to 10 November, the 26th edition of the most important Mediterranean fair dedicated to the circular economy was held at the Fiera in Rimini.
In this important setting, TecnoGen, a subsidiary of BGG, was a guest with one of its most innovative products, the BESS (Battery Energy Storage System), at the VOLVO PENTA stand.

Volvo Penta has displayed for the first time at Ecomondo a BESS (Battery Energy Storage Systems) unit, providing the DC block, based on the Group‘s proven technology, with the aim of contributing to the source-based energy transition renewable.

Earlier in 2023, Volvo Penta declared its provision of subsystems for Battery Energy Storage needs, affirming its dedication to being a dependable partner for BESS manufacturers, as TecnoGen is. Battery energy storage will not only bridge the gap between critical energy needs, backup power with renewable energy sources but also play an important role in supporting the growing demand for charging infrastructure. Robust charging is essential for the widespread adoption of electric vehicles and industrial applications, ultimately contributing to a more sustainable future. This aligns with Volvo Penta’s multi-tenet industrial net-zero strategy, which spans the adoption of alternative fuels, electrification of off-highway applications, battery energy storage subsystems and fuel cell technology development.

To grasp these net-zero opportunities, Volvo Penta will collaborate with TecnoGen in their BESS to support charging infrastructure for electric heavy-duty vehicles. “We’ve had a positive track record using Volvo Penta’s reliable power solutions in our generators, which is why we trust that our foray into battery energy storage will be an exciting evolution of our relationship,” adds Renato Bruno, CEO BGG. “Our combined expertise will complement charging infrastructure, a critical step towards industrial electrification and bolstering clean energy integration in the long run.”

“This collaboration signifies a critical milestone in our pursuit of sustainable solutions, diversifying our BESS competencies,” said Ilenia Procicchiani, Industrial Sales Manager Volvo Penta. “Together, we aim to drive innovation, and accelerate the adoption of BESS-driven charging infrastructure, ultimately playing a pivotal role in achieving a net-zero future.
