UK battery cell manufacturer AMTE Power has teamed up with Sprint Power and Eltrium to accelerate the development of battery technologies to meet the growing and complex needs of the electric vehicle market.
The collaboration will commence in 2022 and, according to the initiators, will aid global carmakers and start-ups as they ramp up the development of hybrid electric vehicles, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles and battery electric vehicles. To do so, the group plans to provide OEM customers with an end-to-end solution for battery systems development, manufacturing and supply.
Sprint Power is a specialist in power electronics, battery management systems and battery module and pack design, while AMTE Power brings its experience in battery cell technology and production. The third part of the partnership is Eltrium’s battery module and pack manufacturing capabilities.
“There is huge potential for growth in the EV market as the government gears up for its 2030 deadline to end the sale of petrol and diesel cars. A reliable and secure supply of battery cells that can hit the right performance for OEMs is absolutely vital to underpin that growth,” said Fergal Harrington-Beatty, Head of Electric Vehicles at AMTE Power, adding: “With Sprint and Eltrium, we’re developing the essential blend of technology, engineering expertise and manufacturing know-how to deliver for them.”
