Developed by BRP-Powertrain's R&D centre, in cooperation with the Regionales Innovation Centrum (RIC) and the Graz University of Technology, the Rotax APU is a system combining Rotax ACE 600 combustion engine, generator and power electronics, which feeds energy into the battery as needed. Therefore the size of the battery is reduced to a minimum, resulting in cost and weight reductions as well. Short ranges with low power consumption - e.g. in the city - are covered by the battery while the Rotax APU kicks in for greater distances.

"We are focused on the development of environmentally friendly technologies with higher energy efficiency and lower emissions," declared Gerd Ohrnberger, vice-president and general manager of BRP's Powertrain division. "The Rotax APU permits us to move forward towards that goal."

"The Rotax ACE 600 engine fulfils the challenging requirements of the APU - low fuel consumption, low emission values and an excellent power-to-weight ratio,” explained Wolfgang Wukisiewitsch, vice-president, Research & Development, Powertrain division. “The engine, including the generator, weighs no more than 69 kg.”

The special “Verena-powered by Verbund” award is awarded for the first time this year. Out of the submissions for the state prize “Innovation”, one company from each federal state was recommended for the special "Verena-powered by Verbund" award. Among these nine companies, three were nominated for realizing innovative projects in the areas of energy efficiency / management, sustainable energies, e-mobility and energy systems in cooperation with universities, universities of applied science and extramural research institutions.
