The First Russian Massive Manufacturing of New Generation Lithium-Ion Accumulators for Energetics and Electric Transport

In December 2011 within the framework of project the largest worldwide plant for manufacturing of high capacity lithium-ion accumulators of Liotech-company was started. Planned plant output will make up to 1gW•h or approximately one million accumulators per year. At the moment Liotech plant manufactures Li-Ion accumulators 240 A•h nominal capacity, since the 4th quarter 2012 manufacturing Li-Ion accumulators 380 and 770 A•h nominal capacity is planned.

Nano-structured cathode material—lithium-Iron-Phosphate (LiFePO4) is used in manufacturing technology. This material allows to achieve the best technical characteristics of accumulators while manufacturing.

The main characteristics of the lithium-ion accumulators (LIA) are high energy density, wide temperature range, large cycle life, ecology and operational safety. Accumulators are assigned for usage as energy storages and installation at all types of electric transport.

Areas of aplication
