AKASOL develops second-generation battery system -Lithium - Ion Battery Equipment

According to foreign media reports, the German company AKASOL will start producing the first-generation battery system AKASYSTEMOEM for the Mercedes-Benz electric bus eCitaro this fall. In addition, AKASOL and Daimler Buses (DaimlerBuses) are working closely together to develop second-generation lithium-ion battery systems. Such upwardly compatible battery systems will increase the energy supply by 35% by 2020 and also improve the range of electric vehicles.(Lithium - Ion Battery Equipment)

Currently, each battery pack of eCitaro has a storage capacity of 25 kWh, and each battery pack of the second-generation battery system will be able to store 33 kWh, which means that each vehicle maintains the same structural space, weight and upward compatibility At the same time, the battery capacity can be increased by 35%, from 243 kWh to 330 kWh.

All thanks to the flexible system architecture that AKASOL offers its customers. According to Daimler Buses, this technological leap, combined with other factors, will help increase the vehicle's range to around 200 kilometers, and ideally up to 250 kilometers. Sven Schulz, CEO of AKASOL, said that in addition to improving the battery pack, the battery management system and mechanical structure have also been finely optimized, which will help improve the second-generation battery system.

Both generations of lithium-ion battery systems are fast-charging (charging up to 300kW) and can power other equipment such as air conditioning and electrical systems. In addition, a key factor in the robustness and durability of the two-generation lithium-ion battery system is that AKASOL uses a water cooling method to manufacture the battery system, which ensures stable battery tempering at 25 degrees Celsius, and electric buses can be used in all climatic conditions. run. The high-performance battery is mounted partly on the roof and partly on the rear of the vehicle.

AKASOL has been developing and supplying various power systems for electric and hybrid buses for many years, and buses using AKASOL battery technology are used in daily operations in cities such as London, Berlin, Cologne and Brunswick.
