The BMZ Group’s new E.Volution Center in Aschaffenburg, Germany will be an incubator for new energy storage technologies. The goal is to develop 200 new battery systems for various applications each year.
BMZ specializes in lithium-ion battery technologies to replace lead batteries in products such as energy storage systems, E-bikes, buses, forklifts, E-boats, industrial trucks, street sweepers, aerospace applications and medical equipment.
Employees at the BMZ E.Volution Center will develop all the components needed for lithium-ion batteries, from concept to series production. Battery cell experts, designers, hardware and software developers, testing engineers, prototype engineers, and welding technology specialists will work at the new facility, which will also serve as a contact for battery recycling and reuse (second life).
“Battery systems are becoming smaller and lighter weight, even as run times are becoming longer, and as devices are able to work within a wider temperature range and charge more quickly,” explains Sven Bauer, CEO & Founder of the BMZ Group.
