Electrification is a key challenge for the automotive industry. We have 20 years’ experience of battery engineering – sizing and specifying the right packs for different needs.
From parallel and series hybrid, to range-extended and full BEV, as well as fuel cell powertrains. And we have a proven process to understand how cells, modules and battery packs perform at every stage of their lifecycle. With detailed modelling of age and health over temperature to help you choose the right technology.
You might be an established Tier-1 or OEM looking for support in optimising pack design and performance, or a single element. Or a start-up requiring full-scale design and development support, or initial pack samples to get your project moving. Whatever your needs, we’ll work with you to understand your battery requirements. Identify the right cells. Design to your specific targets in terms of power, durability and performance. And even help you source or build your packs.
In short, our flexible approach and high levels of engineering expertise will deliver the right results.
We offer a comprehensive range of electrification and battery testing services, including electrical performance testing, environmental testing, safety testing, and durability testing. Our facilities are some of the most advanced in the world. Our capabilities help to ensure that electric and fuel cell vehicles are safe and reliable, and that batteries meet the performance and durability requirements of their intended applications.
