Castrol and Williams Advanced Engineering to develop thermal fluids for EVs

Castrol and Williams Advanced Engineering are partnering to develop high-performance EV fluids. Castrol will become the official supplier of EV thermal fluids for WAE’s electrification programs and motorsport activities such as Formula E, Extreme E, Pure ETCR and Le Mans Daytona h.

The partnership will initially focus on Williams’s motorsport activities, but the companies will also develop fluids for projects covering the aerospace and marine sectors. The partnership will enable WAE to access all of Castrol’s ON products and immersive cooling technology. Concepts will also be explored to improve second-life performance and circularity of batteries and fluids.

“As the world of mobility accelerates towards an electric future, it’s essential that we fully understand the requirements and challenges of electrifying all forms of mobility. By partnering with WAE, we hope to support the development of cutting-edge mobility solutions, as well as further advance our EV Fluid technologies,” said Castrol VP A. S. Ramchander.
