Boyd and E-valucon collaborated to meet U.S. requirements for Buy America

SAN JOSE, Calif.—Boyd Corp. is introducing innovative liquid cooling technology designed for electric vehicle (EV) fast charge stations, the company said in a release.

Boyd engineers, in partnership with E-valucon, have reportedly designed a liquid-to-air cooling system for DC Fast Charging (DCFC) cables and connectors that accelerate safe and sustainable charging. Green coolants ensure the liquid cooled technology is environmentally friendly. Boyd cooling systems are built in-region for EV charging station infrastructure buildouts in North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific, the company said.

“Creating or using power makes heat. Doing this more rapidly and in a small space severely compounds that effect,” said Boyd Chief Commercial Officer Shammy Khan, in the release. “Drivers want faster charge cycles, and infrastructure planners need space-saving solutions. Rapid, high-power charging in tight spaces creates a significant thermal challenge. Our liquid systems reliably meet those market demands with a solution that reduces thermal safety concerns in fast charging stations.”

Boyd said in the release that it addresses regional manufacturing needs for this dynamic market as part of its commitment to champion customer success. The U.S. Department of Transportation and Federal Highway Administration’s National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program phases a Buy America standard into requirements starting in July 2024. NEVI funds $5 billion for the deployment of publicly accessible EV charging infrastructure across the United States.

Boyd and E-valucon have collaborated to meet U.S. requirements for Buy America, combining Boyd’s liquid cooling technology with E-valucon’s fast charging system.

“Boyd’s expertise in thermal solutions and E-valucon’s expertise in EV coupler solutions equip us to support the rapid deployment of reliable and accessible fast charging systems in America,” said E-valucon COO Madison Ahn, in the release. “We’re excited to be a part of this historical movement towards zero emissions through electrification.”

Boyd’s engineered materials and thermal products are said to help maximize performance in 5G infrastructure and the world’s most advanced data centers; enhance reliability and extend range for electric and autonomous vehicles; advance the accuracy of cutting-edge personal healthcare and diagnostic systems; enable performance-critical aircraft and defense technologies; and accelerate innovation in next-generation electronics and human-machine-interface.
