A Powerful Combination

An autonomous and reliable power supply when it matters. VINCORION gensets are used in rail traffic and military missions when other power sources are not an option or when additional, self-sufficient power reserves are required. Whether as a traction and auxiliary power unit for rail vehicles or as an integrated power generator in sophisticated military systems – we design the individual components to work together perfectly. You can rely on a high level of power density and power systems that fit perfectly into complex civilian and military systems.

Gensets for military Vehicles

Military vehicles have to operate optimally also in challenging missions and difficult climate conditions. A back-up power source independently of the main engine extends the options. VINCORION Auxiliary Power Units (APU) and generator sets provide military vehicles with dependable electric energy tailored to the individual on-board system. As a robust and compact combination of diesel engine, alternator and rectifier, the APU enables battery charging and running the air conditioning.
VINCORION Auxiliary Power Units reliably serve in around 1,000 of the two most heavily deployed main battle tanks (MBT) – the British Challenger 2 and the German Leopard 2. Armed forces benefit from high power density for peak performances thanks to a flywheel- mounted, permanent-magnet generator. With a low noise signature the APU supports silent watch mode. A running APU means less wear and tear of the main engine and reduced fuel consumption.
The VINCORION APU caters for a broad range of military vehicles because it is flexibly adjustable to specific customer needs. It's modular, compact, light-weight design allows you to use it in most vehicle compartments. Get in touch with us to learn more about our customized mounting process.
