Battery maker Hoppecke says it should be manufacturing its grid | Xtreme VR pure lead batteries at its new European plant as early as the beginning of next month.
Production at the new plant in Poland will cater for the European data centre and the telecoms market.
Due to its design as a top and front terminal version, the battery is suited both as a UPS battery in data centres and as a back-up battery in telecom applications.
The pure lead technology is the maximisation of the number of electrodes installed and the resulting larger electrochemical reaction surface, which results in a greater energy and power density for lead-acid storage technologies.
Hoppecke’s focus was placed on the reworking and optimisation of all components in order to be able to fully exploit the performance gain of pure lead technology. This has redefined the standard for maintenance-free sealed batteries (VRLA).
