Cooperation with Airbus Group

We are proud to be a part of the development of the brand new electric aircraft called E-Fan. This cooperation with Airbus Group is another great success of our team in the field of high-tech innovations.

This project is an evolution of the Cri-Cri electric plane, which was used by Airbus to test batteries and management technologies.

The E-Fan can proudly display its all-composite construction, which is 6.7 m long and has a wingspan of 9.5 m. If you look at this plane, you can’t overlook two jet engines, which are powered by 2 electric motors giving a total power of 60 kW.

The engines are powered by a series of 250 V Li-Pol batteries. They are ready to provide a range of one-hour flight and can be recharged in the same time. For a safety reasons there is also a backup battery to enable emergency landings.

MGM COMPRO industrial controllers are a part of E-FADEC energy management system, which is a crucial technology to operate the whole electrical system. This key technology automatically handles electrical systems of the aircraft.

We believe that our cooperation will help to come up with another great achievements!
