Zurich, December 21, 2023: Kongsberg Automotive (KA) has been awarded a new contract worth EUR 205 million in estimated lifetime revenue for Gear Control Unit product.

KA’s Gear Control Unit automizes the gear shift functionality in heavy-duty trucks. With integrated actuators on the transmission and operated by compressed air, controlled with electrically operated valves, the gearshift operation is performed in a precise way with comfort for the driver and efficiency for improved fuel consumption. In addition to the mechanical unit with several actuators and shift forks, the electronics and sensors are also part of the scope.

This nine-year contract secured by KA is a result of a close collaboration between KA’s three Tech Centers—Norway, Canada, and China. KA’s Wuxi, China plant will supply the product to the leading heavy-duty truck manufacturer based in China.

“KA is proud to win this significant Automated Manual Transmission contract,” says David Redfearn, KA’s Chief Sales Officer, adding, “This contract nomination proves, once again our capabilities in developing and industrializing commercial vehicle powertrain applications. Winning this with one of the biggest OEMs in China is an important step to gain more market share where we still see further growth opportunities.”
