In contrast to conventional round-wire windings, the HVH stator winding uses precision-formed rectangular wires.

Remy International recently launched a new business unit, Remy Electric Motor Technologies, to accelerate its efforts at supplying high-output electric drive motors for electrified vehicles and equipment.

Remy's HVH250 permanent-magnet electric motor is used in the Two Mode hybrid drive systems used by GM, BMW, and Mercedes. Its most recent application is in the 2010 Mercedes ML450 Hybrid. The motor features Remy's patented High Voltage Hairpin technology which, the company claims, enables the motor to deliver market-leading specific power and torque. The HVH series is the first in a range of new off-the-shelf products planned by Remy for the automotive, truck, bus, and heavy-equipment markets.

Remy is projecting rapid growth over the next five years in the hybrid and EV markets. The company expects to build a $500 million global business unit around electric-motor technologies and is increasing its engineering and manufacturing resources to meet projected demand. Remy's manufacturing capacity in e-motors currently exceeds 100,000 units annually at plants in North American and Europe, and the company plans further expansion by the end of 2010.

Expansion of Remy's e-motor development is being funded in part by recent U.S. Department of Energy grants aimed at accelerating the commercialization of next-generation electric-vehicle technologies. Some of the grant funds will be used to support customer costs associated with the integration of the motor/generator system.
