Electric oil pump
Concentric (Sweden) has received an US-$ 4,24-million order for its electric oil pumps. The business is ramping up over an 8-year period reaching a volume of 8000 units in 2026.
An OEM (original equipment manufacturer) of heavy trucks and buses has selected the electric oil pumps from Concentric. The products will be integrated in the road vehicles to reduce fuel consumption, to increase system efficiency, to provide high power density, and to reduce costs. The power saving is achieved by means of the variable pressure and speed control capability with the additional benefits of low noise. The product also offers on-demand flow and variable speed capability.
David Woolley, President and CEO of Concentric AB, commented: "This first major nomination for Concentric’s new electric oil pump technology is another significant breakthrough in a market driven by increased electrification and control. Our modular design strategy is ideally suited for a wide range of applications for emerging hybrid electric vehicles and demonstrates our ongoing commitment to innovation that enables our customers to achieve sustainable solutions."
The Concentric electric oil pump has been developed in collaboration with a leading supplier of electric motors, resulting in a permanent magnet, brushless DC motor with integrated motor drive electronics. The elimination of brush wear contributes to the unit's ability to operate continuously and trouble-free.

It provides customized systems and solutions to the truck, agricultural machinery, construction equipment, and industrial applications end-markets. The company has manufacturing facilities in the UK, USA, Germany, Sweden, India, China, and Argentina.
