Prodrive Technologies B.V.

creating meaningful technologies that make the world work

Prodrive Technologies B.V. (PT) is a world-leading supplier of precision electronics and mechatronics to industries such as the energy infrastructure-, semiconductor-, medical-, and automotive industry. With an R&D staff of >600 FTE, research, design, and engineering of products is performed in-house along with our own production and manufacturing facilities. Our technology contributes to reducing the global dependency on fossil fuels and to minimizing human exposure to air pollution. To reach our mission of making the world work, Prodrive is active in the programs; Power conversion, Embedded Computing Systems, Vision & Sensing, Motion & Mechatronics, and automated control systems (including IoT).

The Power conversion program provides next-gen and disruptive solutions to customers in markets such as smart grids (distribution regulators, solid state transformers), electric vehicles (DC/DC converters, charging solutions), healthcare (MRI gradient amplifiers) and chip technology (RF generators).

Role in the project
In iSTORMY, Prodrive will develop modular AC/DC technology, with a significant cost reduction, but superior reliability and long lifetime. The modularity should enable unlimited upscaling to industrial scale power and battery energy. This project will help Prodrive to develop modular technology which can be used in future power conversion products enabling industrial electrification and energy storage. Participating in highly innovative projects such as iSTORMY has enabled Prodrive Technologies to stay ahead of the curve and grow accordingly.  as shown both in our growth in turnover as in the number of employees (figure below).

These types of projects enable us to attract and retain highly trained personnel: roughly 70% of our employees have a higher education degree (BSc, MSc, PhD), with about 50% of all our employees working in R&D.
