Purpose-built thermal management solutions from Modine keep EV systems in optimal temperature ranges for REV Group’s fire apparatus brands E-ONE, KME, Ferrara and Spartan Emergency Response.
RACINE, Wis., March 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The unique needs of specialty vehicles like fire and emergency service vehicles must be met for the full benefit of zero-emission transportation solutions to be realized. To that end, Modine Manufacturing Company (NYSE: MOD, “Modine”), a leader in thermal management technology and solutions, today announced an expansion of its partnership with REV Group, Inc. (NYSE: REVG) and its fire apparatus manufacturing brands E-ONE, KME, Ferrara and Spartan Emergency Response. Modine will supply its EVantage™ thermal management systems for the Vector™, the first North American-style all-electric fire truck.
Each Vector fire truck will be equipped with the complete suite of Modine thermal management systems, including the EVantage Battery Thermal Management System (BTMS), Electronics Cooling Package (ECP), and cabin heating and cooling circuits. These systems work together seamlessly to maintain optimal battery temperature, efficiently cool power electronics, and ensure passenger comfort in the cab, respectively.
