Federal-Mogul Powertrain Acquires Controlled Power Technologies

November 20 2017
Federal-Mogul Powertrain announced that it has completed the acquisition of UK-based clean-tech development company, “Controlled Power Technologies Ltd (CPT)”. The purchase provides a timely route for Federal-Mogul Powertrain to expand into the development and manufacture of powertrain technologies for electrification and hybridization that complement the company’s existing capabilities. The new unit will offer its solutions under the name “Federal-Mogul Controlled Power Ltd”.

CPT specializes in the development of 12V and 48V electric motor-generators for start-stop applications, mild hybridization, exhaust-driven electrification technologies, e-boosting for combustion engines, e-compressors for fuell-cells and similar products. These provide powertrain manufacturers with fuel economy improvement, drivability, performance enhancement and emissions reduction measures suitable for a wide range of applications including passenger cars, commercial vehicles and industrial engines.  

One of the key product families within CPT’s portfolio is COBRA: liquid-cooled electric superchargers that offer CO2 and fuel economy improvement up to 15 percent for medium to heavy duty applications.

“While internal combustion engines will continue to play a vital role for many years to come, we see hybridization and electrification of powertrains as a key enabler for vehicle manufacturers to reduce emissions,” explained Rick Llope, Senior Vice President Global Sales and Corporate Strategy, Federal-Mogul Powertrain. “This acquisition will enable Federal-Mogul Powertrain to offer electrified powertrains, further strengthening our position as a key development partner for our customers.”
