Siemens to acquire Heliox to offer e-truck and bus fast charging
Siemens AG has signed an agreement to acquire Heliox, a Netherlands-based company that specialises in fast charging solutions for e-Bus and e-Truck fleets and passenger vehicles.
The acquisition will complement Siemens’ existing eMobility charging portfolio, adding products and solutions for DC fast charging focused on eBus and eTruck fleets. Heliox’s portfolio will also extend Siemens’ market reach, primarily in Europe and North America, while improving capabilities in power electronics. The transaction is subject to customary regulatory approval.
“This is an important milestone that adds value to our fast-growing eMobility charging business. In addition to expanding our offering, we see digitalisation and software potential with regard to energy and depot management and services,” said Matthias Rebellius, member of the managing board of Siemens AG and CEO of Smart Infrastructure.
