When a large oil company invests millions of euros in the development of electric mobility, it is evidently news to be highlighted. This time it’s about British Petroleum (BP)a company that said it wanted to spend the money to finance a new global research center and an analysis laboratory, also in the UK.
Previously, BP had stated that it intends to invest over € 21 billion in the UK’s energy system by the end of 2030. The new facilities, which are expected to open by the end of 2024, they will be located at BP’s current global headquarters for the Castrol division, in Pangbourne, Berkshire, and will support those already working in the technology, engineering and science sectors. “The site, which already carries out research and development for fuels, lubricants and fluids for electric vehicles, aims to become a hub of excellence for fluid technology and engineering in the UK“, Reads a press release from the oil company.
The new center is expected to contribute to the development of important fluid and engineering technologies for hybrid and all-electric vehicles. Castrol ON fluids for electric vehicles manage the temperatures inside the battery, with advantages such as ultra-fast charging and the potential to increase autonomy. According to BP these technologies can be applied to other sectors, such as for the fluids of thermal management of data centers, whose demand is growing exponentially. Most of the world’s Internet Protocol (IP) traffic passes through data centers and the number of Internet users worldwide has doubled since 2010, while global network traffic has increased 15 times1, a trend that is expected to continue. also in the next decade.
Castrolhowever, will continue to use the facilities to collaborate with automakers and suppliers, designing future battery technology, related thermal management fluids and ultrafast charging, elements that underpin BP Pulse’s growth strategy. .
