COBRA – New Prime Power Unit Successful Demo
A significant milestone has been achieved this year on the COBRA Programme, with a successful demonstration of the first power unit with hybrid and variable speed technologies.
In the frame of the COBRA Mid-Life Update contract, ESG and its subcontractor, 2H Energy, developed a new Prime Power Generator for the COBRA system. Following two years of development, two prototypes were presented to France & Germany representatives and OCCAR. The technical demonstration took place in Fécamp (France) from 8 to 10 March 2022.
