Dana has received an Automotive Innovation Technology Award for its insulated-gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) cooling solutions, Long ThermaTEK, at the 11th International Automotive Congress in Shanghai, China. 

The company says the award recognises its achievement of high standards in creating and promoting advanced technologies that improve the performance of automotive applications.
