Energy storage company Stryten Energy said it won a five-year contract from the US Department of Defense to supply submarine valve regulated lead-acid (SVRLA) batteries.
It said the E-Series SVRLA AGM battery technology is virtually maintenance-free and meets the US Navy’s requirements.
The SVRLA battery is built using Absolyte AGP technology, which is seismic qualified to 1997 UBC, 2005 IEEE-693 and 2018 IBC/2016 CBC. The company said it provides superior float life (20 years at 25ºC) and cycling capabilities (1,200 cycles to 80% depth of discharge.)
The company will deliver the batteries and components to the US Navy from autumn 2023.
Financial details were not disclosed.
Stryten makes lead, lithium and vanadium redox flow batteries, intelligent chargers and energy performance management software.
