Napino Auto & Electronics, a leading component supplier has announced a strategic partnership with US-based Kerdea Technologies for its proprietary O2 Sensor (resistive technology).

As per the understanding, Kerdea will transfer its resistive technology to Napino, which will help the supplier to meet the demand for oxygen sensors for the Indian automobile industry in the BS-VI regime and the upcoming OBD2 norms.

Kerdea's technology helps in reducing emission levels and increases fuel efficiency, offering a significant cost advantage. It allows detection and control of engine misfire. Sensors have higher reliability with a full 360-degree mounting flexibility. This results in considerable reduction in size of catalytic convertor and related cost-saving. Napino says the O2 sensors will complement its electronic fuel injection solution.  

Vaibhav Raheja, joint MD, Napino said, "This licensing partnership will further augment our capabilities in the sensors for automotive application. Kerdea’s technology coupled with manufacturing capabilities of Napino group will provide OEMs with technologically robust products while being cost effective. With the rollout of OBD-2 norms by 2022-23, O2 sensors will see robust demand with increased application across vehicle segments.”

Naveen Kumar, Group CEO, Napino said, "We at Napino recognise the need to build sustainable mobility solutions. Our partnership with Kerdea is geared to build a revenue stream, which is both scalable and profitable. We are confident that O2 sensor from Kerdea, which deploys path-breaking resistive technology, will meet customer requirement. The innovative product will lead to significant improvement in fuel efficiency."

Dr. Doug Carnes, CEO, Kerdea Technologies said, " Napino’s commitment to manufacturing excellence and customer service complements Kerdea’s technological platform and the future it brings to the Indian and worldwide automotive industry. Working in tandem and partnership, Napino and Kerdea will be providing OEMs with an O2 technological revolution that benefits manufacturers and customers."
