Bernd Nagel, CEO NAGEL Maschinen- und Werkzeugfabrik GmbH:
“We think that the current rather one-sided focus on electric drives can certainly be enriched by another option. Especially as the energy storage density of batteries is far lower than that of other energy sources – such as hydrogen. Moreover, in our original business – the construction of machine tools – we have been dealing with the reciprocating piston engine for decades and would therefore regret very much if such a powerful and mature technology were to be phased out at some point. KEYOU’s innovative ideas make the combustion engine “green” and thus future-proof”.
NAGEL Maschinen- und Werkzeugfabrik GmbH has been a strategic investor of KEYOU since the end of 2016.
