Muta is back from Busworld 2023 in Bruxelles where our partner Konvekta AG’s new CO2 (R744) heat pump thermal management system for electric double-decker buses has been nominated for the Innovation Award at the Busworld Europe 2023 trade show.
“At a time when comfort, efficiency and sustainability are becoming increasingly important, the standards for mobile air-conditioning and heating solutions need to be redefined,” said Konvekta. “Our CO2 heat pump thermal management system for electric double-decker buses is a milestone in the development of sustainable technologies in the public transport sector.

Our CO2 heat pump thermal management system for electric double-decker buses is a milestone in the development of sustainable technologies in the public transport sector.”
Improved efficiency and range
Konvekta also presented to the public a number of its other products at Busworld Europe 2023, including its roof-mounted Ultralight (UL) 700 CO2 heat pump, which has been found to increase the range of an electric bus by up to 60% and reduce service costs by up to 70%.
Konvekta also introduced its patented “refrigerant charge balancing” system, Additional Energy Storage (AES) software, Energy Collect module and its module for battery temperature control. All of these technologies are designed to improve the efficiency of an electric bus’s heating and cooling systems, as well as improving its range.
Muta with Grammer
Here we are at the stand of our partner Grammer where we tested the new MGS 90.7 driver's seat. The main innovations are: height-adjustable seat belt and shoulder adjustment.
Grammer has presented its current range of driver and passenger seats for buses. In addition to an update of the popular MSG 90.7 driver seat, the leading manufacturer of commercial vehicle seats has showcased the Ubility One passenger seat family. All three seat models - Ubility Light, Ubility Air, Ubility Shift - surprise with unusual design, innovative lightweight construction, consistent design for circular economy and 'aha' effect when taking a seat.
