The highlight of ASPİLSAN Enerji’s showing in the fair was electric vehicle (EV) batteries. The company introduced four different EV batteries for four different applications: electric cars, electric buggies, electric scooters (e-scooter), and civilian-use robotic autonomous land vehicles, presenting them to the public for the first time.
The battery pack ASPİLSAN Enerji developed for electric cars has 8 modules and weighs 400 kg in total. It can output 400 Volts and has a capacity of 22KWh. The battery pack developed for buggy applications can provide 48 Volts, and already has a customer. ASPİLSAN Enerji presented its latest prototype in the fair, the same that will be delivered to the end user.
ASPİLSAN Enerji named the product it developed for usage in robotic autonomous civilian land vehicles that are utilised factories and warehouses, AGV (Automatic Guided Vehicle) Battery. The company has already made a deal with a domestic automotive manufacturer to provide its AGV Batteries.
E-Scooter Battery ASPİLSAN Enerji developed weighs only 500 grams and can provide 36 Volts. Ferhat Özsoy, General Manager at ASPİLSAN Enerji informed us that a typical e-scooter can average around a range of 50 kilometres with this battery.
First Steps for Collaborations
ASPİLSAN Enerji, signed a series of contracts in the fair:
- With HAVELSAN, “Non-Disclosure and Information Exchange Agreement on Energy Sector” and “Memorandum of Understanding for KOVAN Project”
- A Cooperation Protocol for usage of lithium carbonate produced by Eti Maden in R&D efforts as a raw material to develop lithium-ion batteries for ASELSAN
- With TÜBİTAK Rail Transport Technologies Institute (RUTE), a contract named “Development of Lithium-Ion Batteries and Their Subcomponents Project”
- With Menatek, Cooperation Agreement for Delivery of E-Scooter Batteries
The company also presented its 6T Battery, Torpedo Battery, and Telecom Battery products for the first time. The first one of these, 6T Battery, was developed for armoured vehicles and has a capacity of 2.78 KWh. Torpedo Battery was developed for ASELSAN’s TORK Anti-Torpedo Torpedo and successfully tested. Finally, Telecom Battery is already being tested by Turkcell and Türk Telekom and was developed for usage in 5G cell towers.
