Saft Secures Li-ion Battery Contracts in Japan, Canada, Australia

Saft announced that it had concluded contracts to deliver Li-ion battery systems to projects in Japan, Canada and Australia. Takaoka Toko Co Ltd, a subsidiary of Tokyo Electric Power Company, has selected Saft's Intensium Max Li-ion containerised battery system to provide energy storage for a demonstration project on the remote Japanese island of Niijima. Saft said this is its first energy storage system (ESS) contract in Japan. In Canada, Saft has been awarded a contract to develop and install an extreme temperature battery energy storage system (BESS) to be used in a hybrid micro-grid that will deliver clean power to a community located about 50 miles (80.5 km) north of the Arctic Circle. The contract was signed with the Northwest Territories Power Corporation. Thales Australia has picked Saft to deliver Li-ion battery systems with a capacity to power up to 1,300 Hawkei military tactical vehicles. Saft will begin deliveries by the end of this year's first quarter and, if successful, will receive a follow-up contract in the third quarter.

Thales Australia Selects Saft Li-Ion Batteries to Power Hawkei Military Tactical Vehicles

Saft was selected by Thales Australia to deliver Li-ion battery systems that have the potential to power up to 1,300 Hawkei military tactical vehicles. The order signals the growing adoption of Li-ion technology for use in high-power military vehicle applications. Saft will begin deliveries of advanced Li-ion batteries for use in prototype vehicles in the first quarter of 2015 and, upon success, will extend to a follow-on contract for further vehicles early in the third quarter of 2015. The Hawkei represents the next-generation in protected mobility for defense forces that are challenged by Improvised Explosive Devices, mines or small arms ambushes. It is highly mobile, armed and light. The helicopter-deployable unit fulfills a number of operational roles and takes advantage of its small size to move stealthily, remain hidden and provide levels of coverage and safety critical to military use. It is equipped with weapons and systems that provide unparalleled situational awareness and lethality for a vehicle of this size and weight. The Saft Li-ion battery system features an advanced, lightweight design within the dimensions of a traditional lead-acid battery, enabling easy integration into the vehicle. The system will power starting, lights, ignition and silent watch capabilities for the Hawkei vehicle. Saft's long-life solution meets mission objectives to achieve higher, more compact power and energy efficiency; enabling fewer battery replacements and reducing lifecycle costs.
