Rheinmetall Secures Major Contract for Innovative Electric Drive Module Cooling and Lubrication

Rheinmetall electric oil pump order

Rheinmetall secures a new contract from a leading global automaker to deliver multiple electric oil pumps, valued in the three-digit million

Rheinmetall secures a new contract from a leading global automaker to deliver multiple electric oil pumps, valued in the three-digit million-euro range, excluding VAT. Additional sales are anticipated from supplementary services, although specific figures are not yet available. Notably, the Düsseldorf-based technology group had previously received an order for various electric oil pumps from the same manufacturer late last year.

In winning the contract, Rheinmetall once again outpaced the competition owing to the quality of its products and its profound expertise. Rheinmetall’s various electric oil pumps can work with innovative dielectric solutions which stand out for two main reasons: flexible installation in the electric drive module, and a design whose high component integration and single carrier solution make it extremely compact. Production of the initial order (issued last year) is set to commence in May 2024, and this recently awarded production uplift is set to commence in February 2025 and run for six years until December 2030. Rheinmetall is a Tier 1 supplier of the customer. The latest order deepens the Group’s footprint in the forward-looking market for electrification, especially with American original equipment manufacturers.

In the automotive sector and industry in general, Rheinmetall’s thermal and fluid management applications are synonymous with outstanding expertise. Its relevant business units develop solutions for the chief challenges facing the world of mobility, including downsizing, emission reduction and increased efficiency, coupled with simultaneous optimization of performance. Its comprehensive product portfolio encompasses diverse exhaust gas recirculation systems; electromotor-powered throttle, control and exhaust gas flaps; solenoid valves, actuators and valve trains; and oil, water and vacuum pumps for passenger cars and commercial vehicles as well as light- and heavy-duty non-automotive industrial applications.
