    #59 | Interview, Kimmo Rauma, VP Danfoss Editron

    For this episode of the AVID Learning podcast Ryan Maughan talks to Kimmo Rauma who was the founder and CEO of Visedo Oy now part of the Danfoss Editron group.

    Kimmo tells us about his personal journey, his early experience in business and how he came to set up Visedo and the early years and then the transition when Visedo was acquired by Danfoss in 2017.

    Ryan and Kimmo discuss some of the key electrification areas in the off-highway market, electrifying machines like stone crushers and forestry equipment. Kimmo encountered many challenges and difficulties in those early days engaging with the market and convincing customers why they should be looking to electrify their machines. Kimmo explains that he came to realise that there was more to the business case for electrification than fuel savings alone.

    Passenger cars often get the big headlines, but there are major advancements happening using electrification to improve the productivity and efficiency in off highway machinery. Machines that often work 7 days a week and in one year will operate for more hours than an electric car would in its entire life time. But understanding the nature of the challenge and the business case to make electrified machines a viable proposition is essential.

    Kimmo realised the electric motors low speed torque delivery and ability to manage transient load conditions better than a conventional diesel engine drive system was the key to unlocking huge benefits from improved control and productivity.

    Listen to this episode to learn more about Kimmo’s journey as an entrepreneur from pioneering start-up to major global corporation and find out more about the challenges and opportunities for electrification in the heavy duty vehicle and marine markets.

    #58 | Interview, Dane Davis, CTO, Nikola Motor Company

    For this episode of the AVID Learning podcast Ryan Maughan talks to Dane Davis the CTO of Nikola Motor Company.

    Ryan and Dane discuss the meteoric rise of Nikola. Having been founded by Trevor Milton in 2008 in Salt Lake City, Utah, they recently burst into the public eye following a reverse takeover listing on the Nasdaq and high profile investments from Bosch and CNH Industrial to name but two.

    Dane joined Nikola more than 4 years ago and he has an extensive engineering history in controls and vehicle design, even being involved in very early hydraulic hybrid systems. He has led the development of their cutting edge Fuel Cell and Battery Electric Trucks

    Dane has recently moved with Nikola to Phoenix, Arizona he talks about the move and Nikola’s new facilities and he discusses the technology behind the Nikola truck in detail, the reasons behind Nikola’s use of Hydrogen Fuel Cells rather than solely focusing on battery electric technology and some of the key features of the Nikola truck powertrain.

    Dane and Ryan also discuss business strategy, leadership and the importance of the right culture in a disruptive technology business. This is an excellent and in-depth discussion between Dane and Ryan and definitely worth a listen if you are interested in the future of truck powertrain or the Nikola motors story.

    #57 | Interview, Nick Kitchin, Cumulus Energy Storage

    For this episode of the AVID Learning podcast Ryan Maughan talks to Nick Kitchin the CEO and co-founder of Cumulus Energy Storage who are developing novel rechargeable copper zinc battery technology for grid storage applications.

    Ryan finds out more about Cumulus Energy Storage and their technology and discusses the grid energy storage market in detail with Nick. Grid energy storage is a vast and growing market driven in part by the move to more renewables and also connected to the rise of electric vehicles. Grid storage helps to even out supply and demand so we can utilise capacity more efficiently rather than paying power plants to run at zero load.

    Cumulus Energy Storage are at an early stage and they have big plans to develop the business into a significant player in the grid storage market. Nick’s story is also very interesting as he moved from engineering to business coaching and being an author and back into life as an entrepreneur.
