Buehler Motor, Inc., an international provider of mechatronic drive and pump solutions will supply brushless pump drives to Inergy Automotive Systems, a global Tier One automotive supplier of complete plastic fuel systems, energy and fluid storage technologies. The Buehler solution will drive Inergy’s DINOX select catalytic reduction (SCR) system designed for diesel-fuel cars.
The Inergy partnership signals the third high-profile technology alliance for Buehler Motor in the greener vehicle segment, and follows previously announced contracts to provide its pump solutions for the General Motors Chevy Volt and CODA Automotive’s electric five-passenger sedan.
Buehler and Inergy are currently conducting final tests and adjustments to the co-developed SCR system, and production is planned for 2011. Designed to meet 2014 Euro 6 regulations for CO2 emissions reduction in diesel-fuel automotive engines, the Inergy DINOX SCR systems will be adopted by select 2011 Audi and General Motors diesel-fuel vehicles. Specific vehicle models have not been determined.
Buehler Motor, Inc., and its parent, Buehler Motor GmbH, have been providing North American automotive OEMs and Tier One suppliers with customized mechatronic drive technology since 1969. A partial past and present client list includes Audi, BMW, Continental, GM, Hella, Johnson Controls, Lear, Mercedes-Benz, Siemens and Volkswagen.
