Under the partnership, ABB will install a state-of-the-art EV Charging Station at Sauber’s headquarters in Hinwil, Switzerland, providing the latest in fast-charging battery technology to the growing number of electric vehicle users in the company. The charging station will be powered by the photovoltaic field already installed over the Sauber headquarters’ parking lot – currently one of the largest in Switzerland.

Sauber Group already has a long-standing technical relationship with ABB, whose frequency converter controls fan speed in Sauber Aerodynamik’s wind tunnel – the state-of-the-art wind tunnel used to develop all the Formula OneTM cars of Sauber Motorsport. Further technical collaborations at Sauber Group’s modern production facility are envisaged using a range of ABB technologies.

Both companies will use the new partnership to further their own sustainability goals – ABB with its Mission to Zero initiative and Sauber Group with its own drive to reduce carbon emissions and increase energy efficiency in all areas of its operation.

Robert Itschner, ABB Switzerland Country Managing Director said: “This is a tremendously exciting partnership, which gives two iconic Swiss brand names the opportunity to collaborate and share their world-class technologies for an emission-free future.”

Frédéric Vasseur, CEO Sauber Engineering AG: “The partnership with ABB is a real statement of intent for Sauber Engineering. We pride ourselves on our commitment to both innovation and sustainability, and our work with ABB will employ technology and human ingenuity to reflect both these important aspects.”

Christoph Hansen, Director of Technology & Innovation of Sauber Engineering: “Sauber Engineering is at the forefront of innovation and research, not just in automotive development but in a wide range of fields. The deal with ABB, a giant in the technology market, will provide both companies with a partner able to enhance their own capabilities. The construction of the EV charging station is but a first step in this relationship and I am really looking forward to exploring the further ways we can work together.”

ABB’ Electrification business’ Mission to Zero strategy is a blueprint for a sustainable future for industry, homes and cities. Through projects such as ABB’s zero-emission and energy self-sufficient factory in Luedenscheid, Germany, ABB is showcasing a range of technologies which can help deliver a greener, emission-free future for all. Close to 60 percent of ABB worldwide revenues are already generated with technology that contributes to the elimination of the causes of climate change.
