Siemens AG has completed the acquisition of Heliox, a technology leader in DC fast charging solutions, serving eBus and eTruck fleets and passenger vehicles.
The acquisition complements Siemens’ existing eMobility charging portfolio, adding products and solutions ranging from 40 kilowatts (kW) to megawatt charging solutions for depots and en-route charging.
Heliox’s portfolio also extends Siemens’ market reach, primarily in Europe and North America, while improving capabilities in power electronics.
Heliox’s mobile, scalable and parallel charging solutions will enable Siemens to serve these markets better.
Matthias Rebellius, CEO of Smart Infrastructure and member of the Managing Board of Siemens AG said: “DC fast charging solutions for eBus and eTruck fleets are considered the fastest growing segment here.”
“With the acquisition of Heliox, Siemens eMobility is well-positioned to serve our customers worldwide,” he added.
Next to DC fast charging solutions, Heliox offers charger monitoring and energy management services.
This expands Siemens eMobility’s IoT product portfolio and strengthens its digitalization and software offering.
The combination of the two companies’ charging portfolios creates a strong offering for eBus and eTruck customers.
Heliox is set to benefit from Siemens’ industrialization capabilities, global sales network and infrastructure, enabling it to scale up its production and meet increasing customer demand.
Siemens eMobility is a division of Siemens Smart Infrastructure, providing IoT-enabled hardware, software, and services for AC and DC charging, ranging from 11 kW to 1 megawatt for a wide range of applications.
The company acquired Heliox from the private equity firm Waterland and an entity owned by a group of employees and individual shareholders.
