MAHLE Receives Volvo Supplier Award For Innovation And Fuel Efficiency

MAHLE-Volvo-Group-Supplier-AwardThe Volvo Group has presented MAHLE with the 2016 Supplier Award in the category of “Innovation and Fuel Efficiency.” This is the manufacturer’s recognition for MAHLE’s innovative strength and systems expertise in commercial vehicles.

Volvo highlighted the MAHLE Monoweld steel piston — the element in the power cell unit (PCU) — as an example of permanent contribution toward fuel efficiency. This two-piece, friction-welded piston, which has been used at Volvo since the launch of EURO VI engines, is tuned for interaction with the other components in the PCU supplied by MAHLE as a complete system, the company says. MAHLE uses this holistic systems approach as an essential lever to achieve further gains in fuel efficiency.

For commercial vehicles from the Volvo Group bearing the names Volvo (Trucks), Renault Trucks, Mack and UD, MAHLE supplies air conditioning systems, engine cooling systems and cylinder head cover systems with integrated oil mist separation, in addition to the PCU.
