For the lifelines of
More flexible, more powerful, and at the same time, sustainable and low-maintenance – defense systems will face growing demands in the coming decades. This will require power supply systems that can meet the tremendous power requirements efficiently and flexibly – with minimal fuel consumption and replenishment logistics. This creates a significant tactical and economic advantage over decades of use.
VINCORION supplies cutting-edge power systems made in Germany. We rely on a sustainable and established value chain for both efficient gensets with state-of-the-art exhaust gas aftertreatment as well as efficient power storage modules.
Many years of experience and comprehensive expertise from development to maintenance are what make the difference at VINCORION. Generators, gensets, controllers, power electronics, sensors, battery systems, and storage technologies are produced or processed by us to perfectly meet your needs.
Next-Level Power Generation
VINCORION will use diesel engines with state-of-the-art exhaust gas aftertreatment for its future military gensets PGM low emissionsV. Thanks to emission downgrade technology, these systems can be used worldwide in the event of a crisis, even with poor-quality fuels.
Only the new power storage modules ESM hybridV, which feature the latest storage technology and power electronics, are even more environmentally friendly. Rugged, field-proven, and uninterruptible, all of our power systems can be operated reliably in the field – autonomously via a basic genset, as part of a hybrid system, or in uninterruptible grid-parallel operation when a connection to the power grid is available.
Whether for command posts, communication and monitoring systems, or the operation of sensitive IT or medical equipment, our network of gensets and power storage units facilitates the efficient and flexible parallel and interconnected operation of all of the German Armed Forces’ future 20 kW, 50 kW and 200 kW systems, among others. All of our gensets and power storage units are controlled by the same VINCORION controllers. This makes integrated, user-friendly power management possible across all devices and subsystems, and means that users can integrate both today’s and tomorrow’s customized interfaces. High temperatures, sand, dust, and other environmental influences have no effect on the rugged system.

In order to ensure that the maximum amount of power is available for air defense operations at the military camp, power must be fed in and made available from a variety of sources, such as the regional power grid.
VINCORION has been supplying field-proven converters for decades that provide a 400 Hz supply for long-term deployments. You can operate your infrastructure via the local power grid or the VINCORION genset without having to switch over VINCORION converters operate in hot standby mode so that you can seamlessly switch between grid and genset operation at any time without any interruption in power.
Our 400 Hz converters can be operated on 50 Hz and 60 Hz networks worldwide and meet military standards’ stringent formal requirements. As a result, sensitive military equipment such as aircraft or air defense systems receive a reliable and constant supply of 400 Hz power at an appropriate voltage.
Y can rely on our expertise, including state-of-the-art development, production, and testing tools.
The development of modern military vehicles that include more and more systems that require power is leading to an increasing demand for electricity.
VINCORION’s powerful and compact electric power systems can work either in combination with the main drive system or independently of it. We offer complete power solutions for your vehicles – from extra-low voltage to low or high voltage.
In the extra-low voltage segment, we are broadly positioned with auxiliary power units that can also be used as range extenders, our HEMS (hybrid energy management system) start-stop system, and our BOS (battery observation system).
In addition, we offer the ability for you to use a complete power system with starter generator, lithium-ion battery connection, connection to the vehicle’s 28-volt on-board electrical system, export/import power, and high-voltage systems that consume electricity like A/C drives or high-performance fan drives. In this context, we offer numerous additional functions such as boost mode, KERS, and silent watch mode.
VINCORION solutions stand out for their efficiency, functionality, and ease of integration. We offer optimized electrical vehicle power systems that are an excellent value. Contact us today for a solution tailored to your needs.
Local conflicts, whether civil disasters or military operations, require small units that can quickly change their location. A power supply that is both reliable and as autonomous as possible is critical to the success of many missions today.
VINCORION’s PPM modularV portable power management modules serve as a flexible supply of power for mobile units. These modules can use all available power sources and can be powered via storage modules independently of other power sources. A fuel cell module can also be implemented, which reduces the amount of resources required for use even further.
The individual modules can be combined with each other via a plug-and-play system. Our mobile power management system ensures that the right modular power supply can be selected for every mission. This frees your units from their reliance on complex logistics – a key factor in the success of any mission.
Supplying power via electrical generators plays a crucial role in mobile military readiness. The generators are the workhorses that drive the success of your missions. In this context, the requirements are as varied as the vehicle profiles.
We scale our power generators to perfectly fit your installation space, power requirements, and climatic conditions. Choose between air, water, and oil cooling and an output between 5.6 and 28 kilowatts (28 VDC) or more than 100 kW for use in high-voltage systems.
Our generators also stand out for their cost-effectiveness, e.g., due to low life cycle costs with a long MTBF (“mean time between failures”).
Military vehicles have to perform perfectly at all times, even during demanding missions and in difficult climatic conditions. An emergency power source that operates independently of the main drive system expands the options.
Gensets from VINCORION reliably supply electricity tailored to the respective on-board systems. As a heavy-duty and compact combination of diesel engine, generator, and rectifier, the auxiliary power unit (APU) makes it possible to charge the battery and operate the air conditioning.
VINCORION solutions can be adapted with flexibility to meet specific customer requirements and can be used in a wide range of military vehicles. Their modular, compact, and lightweight design means they can be installed in almost any space in the vehicle.
VINCORION’s auxiliary power units have proven themselves all over the world. They currently operate reliably in around 1,000 models of two main battle tanks in widespread use worldwide: the British Challenger 2 and the German Leopard 2. The permanent magnet flywheel generator installed in the system delivers high energy peaks. Because it does not produce a great deal of noise, the APU also supports silent watch mode. A running APU reduces wear and tear on the main drive system and reduces fuel consumption.
In a military mission, the first strike is of critical importance. A military vehicle’s weapon must remain precisely on target – even when driving across rough terrain. The weapon stabilization system needs to continuously and directly compensate for vehicle movement and recoil from the shot, and do so in a reliable, low-maintenance, and cost-effective manner for decades.
Take advantage of VINCORION’s extensive expertise in gun turret and weapon stabilization systems. If you have a technical challenge, we can develop a tailored solution for you.
Based on our experience with the Puma, Leopard, and the self-propelled howitzer 2000, we have developed the perfect modular base system in the form of the GTD chaserV. Consisting of control and power electronics, sensors, and electromechanical drives, this system can be adapted to any platform at short notice to meet individual requirements.
VINCORION’s GTD chaserV is a powerful system with easy-to-maintain replacement and repair capabilities, rapid development times, simplified spare parts logistics, and short procurement cycles.
We will remain by your side from development to upgrading the system with new functionalities to overhauling the system decades later – whether via our worldwide customer support, at our own workshops, or during training sessions and seminars.
