With acquisition, Leclanché expands its expertise in batteries for heavy-duty transport

Li-ion Batteries

Swiss battery manufacturer Leclanché has acquired Trineuron, a business unit of the Belgian company Emrol that specializes in lithium titanate battery technology.

With this acquisition, Leclanché adds a new development center and 10 engineers, and expects to increase its development capability, especially in transport applications such as electric/hybrid buses, ferries, mining vehicles, and automated guided vehicles.

Leclanché was established in 1909, and is named for Georges Leclanché, the inventor of the dry cell battery. Its storage solutions are optimized for such applications as renewable energy, diesel fuel reduction, grid-connected ancillary services, peak power shaving, and heavy-duty transportation in buses, trams, trains and ships.

“Trineuron has a very complementary technology to Leclanche’s current business and brings a strong sales footprint in our target markets,” said Leclanché CEO Anil Srivastava. “They will provide a strong reinforcement of our storage system offerings and advance the vertical integration of our storage solution technology. By adding the development capability for transport solutions from Trineuron, Leclanché increases its depth as an integrated storage solution provider for industrial applications.”
