AKASOL AG

High Performance Battery Systems for Buses

Economical, Quiet and Environmentally Friendly.

Due to their inner city use, buses are virtually predestined for conversion to electric and/or hybrid engines. CO2 emission and noise pollution are considerably reduced by electric buses. In addition, the electrification of commercial vehicles is already economical today. As a result of usually clearly defined usage profiles, a clear energy and performance requirement can be determined, which provides information about the total cost of ownership (TCO). Furthermore a range of up to 400 kilometers can already be achieved with fully electric powertrains. Absolutely reliable in every respect – with AKASOL.

From a Solar Mobile World Champion to an International Technology Leader

Right from the outset, AKASOL was characterised by visions and the drive to conduct research and implementation of alternative powertrain concepts. The personal energy of all employees and the desire to create something pioneering in the field of modern battery storage systems has resulted in first-class products and market leadership.

In all products, AKASOL implements its comprehensive experience acquired in the development of e-mobility solutions and here, with equal intensity, pursues the basic thought of efficient, environmentally-friendly powertrains.

AKASOL Battery Systems Properties:

  • Safe, Reliable, Durable
  • Liquid Cooling
  • Modular and Freely Scalable
  • Capable of Fast Charging
  • Automotive, Marine and Rail Certified
  • Highest Energy Density
  • Fully Validated

Quality

More Power at Less Space

With very high energy densities on system level and the most compact liquid cooling in the market, AKASOL battery systems have very low space requirements and emit only little heat. These are the ideal preconditions for a long battery life with a maximum power output for a safe, reliable and durable operation.

Certified and Validated Solutions

At AKASOL experts for system development, mechatronics, electronics, software and cell chemistry research together on innovative solutions for the best electrical energy storage system. All of our serial systems for buses, commercial vehicles, railway and marine applications are tested and can be certified according to the specific standards and requirements of each branch.

Serial Production According to IATF 16949

To fulfill our clients automotive standards, AKASOL battery systems for bus applications are developed and produced in an automotive IATF 16949 compliant environment at our production facility in Langen/Germany. And if necessary we even adopt additional requirements that come up with our clients projects.

AKASystem AKM CYC for Bus

The latest high-energy battery system AKASystem CYC uses the new cylindrical cell battery modules with very high energy density. It’s robust and scalable, and acquisition costs per kWh are comparatively low. In comparison
