GOVECS Plant –The biggest production facility for electric 2-wheeler in Europe

GOVECS‘s state of the art production plant with an assembly hall covering a surface of 4,000 square metres is located at the geographical centre of Europe – in the Polish city of Wroclaw.  The automated production line is 36 metres long and provides enough room for the parallel assembly of up to nine scooters. Work to full capacity thus means that every 15 minutes an electric scooter rolls off the production line. The work ergonomics of the production line take into account the many manual work steps and provide optimal accessibility while at the same time ensuring an utterly safe work environment. GOVECS is VCA certified throughout the applied production processes. An ERP computer system controls the production with a just-in-time delivery of the components. The FIFO warehousing method safeguards smooth operation of inventories.

Why we need a new way of thinking

Mobility is undergoing change. In the year 2030, 60% of the world’s population will be living in urban areas. The ever growing residential density, the increasing traffic volume and the increase in CO2 emissions associated therewith make clean and efficient transport solutions necessary. It is required to establish a new way of thinking and innovative mobility concepts in order to ensure clean inner cities and a healthier urban life. The car that used to be the status symbol of personal freedom will be gradually expelled from the cities and replaced by new mobility concepts. E-mobility will contribute considerably to the so-called “Green Cities“. Even though the idea of electric vehicles is not really new as such, the time is right and there is high demand to revive this technology, which has been developed already at the beginning of the 20th century, for instance in electric scooters.

European Engineering

We are frequently asked why our headquarters are located in Munich and the production in Wroclaw, Poland. There are sound reasons for this decision. Munich is Germany’s strongest business location. The most important German groups are represented in “Isar Valley“. With laptop and lederhosen, Munich is playing in the Champions League, and not only soccer! It is an ideal location to offer and develop new mobility solutions.  And what about Wroclaw? As geographic centre of modern Europe, Wroclaw is the talent factory in engineering and high-tech. This is not only proven by the more than 140,000 students at the universities and academies of the city – the intensive influx of New Economy companies such as Amazon or Google underline Wroclaw’s development to the new high-tech and IT location in Eastern Europe. The direct international link is moreover of prime importance for us.

Drivetrain – the technology Story

The characteristic centrepiece of a GOVECS scooter is the belt drive. We have based the entire drive system on it from the very beginning and spent tremendous amounts of time and testing for it. Now that we drove more than a million of test kilometres we are proud of this all-encompassing drive system, which makes a highly efficient energy utilization and an optimal interaction of the components possible and at the same time ensures unique driving experience. One of the crucial characteristics for accuracy, efficiency and time control of the drivetrain is the special angle of the magnetic Encoder-IC and a switch that is directly integrated in the die-cast motor housing. With that the torque is improved and the measurements can be carried out with a relative accuracy of +/- 1 LSB. This ensures a smooth control of the drive system during acceleration. When the driver actuates the throttle, this produces a flat power curve that is much more comfortable than the binary jerky movement of our competitors.

Back to future

First there is a fleeting brainwave, a sudden inspiration that slowly develops to a concrete vision and quite often ends up in path-breaking inventions or globally successful enterprises. Brainwaves that Thomas Grübel knows well and that – with hindsight – made him the pioneer of two-wheeled electric mobility.
