AMTE Power confirms Cosworth as prospective client

Budding battery producer AMTE Power has signed a memorandum of understanding with automotive engineering company Cosworth. The company may use AMTE’s “ultra high power” cells in their specialist electric vehicles that cover many sectors.

Cosworth is known chiefly for its long Formula 1 engagement. As for the non-binding agreement with AMTE Power, the cells may help power the high-performance automotive, aerospace and marine sectors in future. Following its recent acquisition of electrification specialist Delta, Cosworth says it has accelerated its development of battery systems to complement its electrified powertrains and engines.

AMTE Power says the envisioned rapid charging and discharging time made the cell “ideally suited for use within Cosworth’s technologies and end-to-end vehicle solutions.”

AMTE Power’s cell technology is still under development yet in the “advanced stages”. The company adds that their UHP lithium-ion cell was undergoing scale-up and testing trials at the UK Battery Industrial Centre (UKBIC).

Kevin Brundish, CEO of AMTE Power, said the collaboration with Cosworth was “another key step in our journey as we scale up production and move towards commercialisation.”

Hal Reisiger, CEO of Cosworth, commented, “Through our battery offering, we can deliver and integrate high-power systems from flexible, scalable modules at low volumes. The new co-operation with AMTE Power will further strengthen our existing capabilities in this important area.”

AMTE Power manufactures at a small scale at the AMTE factory in Thurso, Scotland. The battery maker also looks to open another, larger-scale facility and repeated its call for funding earlier this week. AMTE Power now wants to set up a “MegaFactory” in the Scottish town of Dundee. The company proposes fitting an existing building to host a 0.5 GWh plant. It could be operational and produce battery cells by the third quarter of 2025, so AMTE.

Cosworth was named as an early prospective customer before. AMTE also claimed to be working with Jaguar Land Rover and Williams on pouch cells. In April of this year, the company also announced a collaboration with Sprint Power for battery management systems, battery module and pack design, and Eltrium for manufacturing capabilities.
