PowerGenix has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Asian battery manufacturer Amperex Technology Co. Ltd. (ATL) to manufacture nickel-zinc batteries for use in start-stop applications.
ATL manufactures rechargeable lithium-polymer battery cells and related battery packs and systems. It was the first Chinese manufacturer to produce high quality lithium-polymer batteries in large volumes
Under the terms of the MoU, ATL will produce nickel-zinc cells, components and battery modules. Powergenix hopes ATL’s established reputation will help accelerate nickel-zinc’s widespread adoption.
“ATL’s reputation for engineering excellence and high-volume manufacturing expertise will pave the way for nickel-zinc,” said Robert Kanode, CEO of PowerGenix.
