The transition to sustainable mobility is growing in some countries more than in others; in Italy for instance, it is proceeding slowly but with a constant increasing trend. Talking about electric mobility, passenger transportation, public transports and agricultural transport are consolidated facts, whereas some manufactures are moving towards industrial vehicles. “No one is dealing with the infrastructures – says Pierre Lahutte – or it’s better to say that few are thinking about integrated solutions: offer a charging station to the end user it’s not enough. To became a success case, the electric traction must be part of a complete system that starts from the energy production, moves on to the examination of the climatic and environmental conditions, to reach finally the charging solutions always paying attention to the design”.

In this scenario Pierre Lahutte joined FRIEM’s Board of Directors, company with headquarter in Segrate nearby Milan, as Mobility Expert, to support with his knowledge the development of the Business Unit Mobility. “Our core business – explains Lorenzo Carnelli, FRIEM’s CEO – is the production of power converters. Over the years the new Business Units Energy and Mobility, came up beside the historical Business Unit Industry as result of the Industrial Plan started in 2017”. FRIEM designs and manufactures and delivers all over the world high power converters mostly dedicated to the raw materials extraction (mines, zinc etc.).
Two of FRIEM’s major strengths are customization and service continuity. “In case of fault – points out Michele Cavarretta, FRIEM’s COO – if the remote assistance would not solve the problem, a technician goes immediately onsite”.

The strategy for 2021 contemplates to push on heavy vehicles charging infrastructures market. “FRIEM is investing in the development of new DC High Power Charging Stations and will deliver the first project for a local transportation company by the end of 2020 – explains Gianluca Donato, BU Mobility Manager – The aim is to serve the whole range of electric vehicles that need to be charged, offering solutions up to 22 kW AC and 350 kW DC”.
