Konvekta - CO2 Heat Pump
Konvekta AG - Hall 5 - 508

Konvekta CO2 heat pump thermal management system for electric double-decker buses

The new CO2 heat pump air conditioning and heating system of Konvekta AG was developed especially for electric double-deck buses. Integral part of this technology is a compact CO2 heat pump mounted in the rear of the vehicle.

This system regulates the temperature of the bus with pinpoint accuracy in hot summer and also cold winter months. A pleasant climate for drivers and passengers without the use of environmentally harmful refrigerants, fossil fuels or an additional electric heater. It obtains heat not from fuel or through pure electricity, but from the ambient air. As a result, it yields a multiple of the input energy and achieves a high level of climate comfort. To generate 100% heat, the Konvekta double-deck CO2 heat pump requires only 1/3 operating power from the battery.

Saint Gobain - Reflexcontrol
Saint-Gobain Sekurit Transport - Hall 7 - 760B


Reflexcontrol® is an anti-reflective coating applied on glass surface and which reduced drastically the unwanted reflection on glass. This technology can be used on all the glazing surrounding the driver (i.e. driver window,front door glass, partition wall and windshield) to improve the driver vision through the glass. Driving by night with reduced reflection of all external lights on the glass will be much safer. The improved driving comfort will lead to a better driver vigilance and reduce the risk of accidents.
