Equipmake agrees strategic partnership with leading electric aerospace propulsions specialist to advance electric aircraft

 

Equipmake Holdings Plc, the UK developer and manufacturer of best-in-class electrification products for the provision of electric vehicle ("EV") drivetrains, is pleased to announce that it is partnering with a leading electric aerospace propulsions solutions specialist to supply motors for an electric aircraft. 

Under the terms of the purchase order, which is worth an initial consideration of approximately £400,000, Equipmake will supply bespoke, high-performance, electric prototype motors for use in an electric aircraft.

The electric motors will be developed using a new design based on Equipmake's existing proprietary rotor design. The motors will be designed and manufactured at the Company's base in Snetterton, UK, for delivery in 2023. Full production of the aircraft is currently targeted for 2024.

Ian Foley, CEO, Equipmake said: "We are delighted to be working with this partner, a leading provider of electric propulsion solutions and battery pack systems, on this project to supply our lightweight, power dense, electric motors. We are looking forward to supporting the team beyond the development phase, right through to test flights and full production of the aircraft."

"Such projects reflect ongoing demand for Equipmake's products and solutions both abroad and in the UK, and our plans to scale our operations to meet this demand remain on track."
