Partnering opportunity

An Italian company is searching technical know-how in the field of power electronics and battery systems


An Italian SME has developed state-of-the-art engineering competence on diesel engine design with specific development of a diesel/electric hybrid powertrain for off road applications. It’s searching for technical and research cooperation and manufacturing agreement with international partners, expert on the power electronics associated to the electrical portion of the hybrid powertrain, to be applied on off-road machinery.

Technical Specification or Expertise Sought

This company is seeking transnational cooperation with private companies to further explore processes and optimization in the sector of electronic integration of power systems, inverters, battery systems and battery management systems, electronic control units and control software development.

Partner sought

This Italian company is searching a technical know-how in the field of power electronics and battery systems to integrate their core competence in the diesel-electric hybrid powertrain field, to be applied on off-road machinery. The ideal partners of this company are private international SMEs with a strong internal know-how, to provide their expertise and/or their systems and to accelerate the system optimization for future production. The cooperation would also extend the marketing reach to sectors traditionally more oriented to electric power sources. It would be based on research and technical cooperation and manufacturing agreement. It could have different formats and timing, initially it could be technical advanced research to continuously improve the product, or finalized to optimize the overall system in terms of production and cost competitiveness. In a second phase, it could be aimed to share production plans by combining the respective manufacturing competences. The Italian company is currently exporting to the Far East market 100% of their product and is used to international and extra-European partnerships. As such the cooperation is open in particular to European and Asian markets, as they show greater potentiality, but they are interested in other markets, too.


This company was established in 2014 in northern Italy with expertise related to diesel engine design and development. Decades - long extensive experience of key managers on development and manufacturing of diesel engines has set up the basis of a robust know-how. At present, this company supplies customers in Far East countries, in particular in China. The company has developed several new state-of-the-art diesel engines for international customers. Engines are currently in production at the customer’s plant and applied on on-highway vehicles and off highway machinery (Agriculture, industry, marine, Construction etc.). In order to extend the technology to diesel-electric hybrid powertrain the company has set up a specific branch developing a unique hybrid architecture, implying specific know how on power electronics, battery management systems and system control (software and hardware). The needed technology concerns in particular: inverters, battery management systems, high power density electric motors, control unit, control software developer. They are interested in technical and research cooperation, and manufacturing agreement by providing their expertise and/or their systems, with partners having the competence in the above power electronics for optimizing the development and future production of the system. It would also extend the marketing reach to sectors traditionally more oriented to electric power sources. The cooperation could have different formats and timing. Initially: • Technical advanced Research to continuously improve the product • Optimization of the overall system in terms of production and cost competitiveness In a second phase: • Sharing production plans by combining the respective manufacturing competences.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
