The battery systems of BorgWarner’s Akasol brand have been providing energy for multiple electrified commercial and industrial vehicles for numerous years. The modular approach does not only offer remarkable flexibility, scalability and safety, but also very high economic efficiency.
With very high energy densities on the system level and in our view the most compact liquid cooling, AKASOL battery systems have very low space requirements and emit only little heat. These are the ideal preconditions for long battery life with a high power output for safe, reliable and durable operation. Thanks to the modular design and free scalability of the AKASystem, we can tailor solutions to meet our customers’ needs for bus, commercial, industrial, rail and marine applications.
AKASOL developed four types of high-performance lithium-ion battery systems and each type has been designed to serve a specific application, adjusting characteristics such as cell type, cycle life and cost per kWh.
The ultra-high-energy battery system AKASystem CYC uses the new cylindrical-cell battery modules with very high energy density. It is robust and scalable, and acquisition costs per kWh are comparatively low. In comparison to what current technology permits, this new technology will allow electric vehicles to increase their range by more than 60 percent. This system is developed for long-distance traffic such as buses using overnight charging facilities, intercity coaches and trucks.
