US supercapacitor firm Maxwell Technologies is increasing its foothold in China’s motive industry after signing a definitive agreement with CRRC Qingdao Sifang Rolling Stock Research Institute (CRRC-SRI).
Under the terms of the agreement, manufacturing of the company’s ultracapacitor-based modules is set to begin in China during the second half of 2017.
US ultracapacitor-based energy storage firm Maxwell Technologies has confirmed the first commercial application of its lithium-ion capacitors as it continues to embrace the potential of China’s railway market.
The technology was developed in conjunction with Chinese rail manufacturer China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation (CRRC-SRI).
Maxwell Technologies, Inc. a leading developer and manufacturer of ultracapacitor-based energy storage and power delivery solutions, has announced its ultracapacitors are being used for regenerative braking energy storage in the Beijing subway system.
As part of the strategic partnership with China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation, Maxwell announced last year, the companies continue to collaborate to develop next-generation capacitive energy storage solutions for the China rail market.
The installation with the Beijing subway system is the first commercial subway wayside project for CRRC-SRI and Maxwell in China. CRRC-SRI will use Maxwell's 48-volt modules in two sets of regenerative braking energy storage devices for the system's No. 8 line, an urban rail network that runs north-south through China's capital.
The devices fulfill China rail requirements for energy savings and environmental protection, creating an ideal opportunity for ultracapacitor application.
US ultracapacitor company Maxwell Technologies has launched a higher voltage cell as it continues to target the transport, wind and grid application markets.
The ultracapacitor-based energy storage and power delivery developer and manufacturer has added a 3-volt (3V), 3,000-farad ultracapacitor cell to its K2 range.
US-based ultracapacitor manufacturer Maxwell Technologies has signed a deal to develop energy storage technology for the Chinese rail market.
The long-term strategic partnership agreement with China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation’s (CRRC) Qingdao Sifang Rolling Stock Research Institute covers the joint development of the technology.
Californian company Maxwell Technologies has appointed Michael Finger as the company’s senior vice president of global sales.
