SVOLT ENERGY TECHNOLOGY
As a global high-tech company and spin-off of the Chinese automobile manufacturer Great Wall Motors, SVOLT develops and produces lithium-ion batteries and battery systems for electric vehicles as well as energy storage.
SVOLT is headquartered in Jintan District, Changzhou, Jiangsu province in China. The home office of the European subsidiary SVOLT Energy Technology (Europe) GmbH is in Frankfurt am Main. SVOLT employs around 12,000 people worldwide, 3,000 of whom work in research and development (R&D). In 2019, SVOLT registered over 550 patents.
By taking an integrated approach to vehicle architecture and battery system, SVOLT supports automobile manufacturers in creating safer, high-performance, durable and cost-effective products that also focus on the needs and expectations of end customers.
SVOLT offers an extensive product portfolio to its customers from the automotive sector and industry. This includes high-quality battery cells and their cell chemistry, modules and high-voltage storage systems (packs) as well as battery management systems (BMS) and software solutions.
SUSTAINABLE AND TRANSPARENT
In addition to products that comply with current market standards, SVOLT is also developing new technologies. Soon, for example, the company will be launching high-performance and cheaper battery cells that do not use the controversial raw material cobalt.
The cobalt-free nickel manganese battery cells (NMX) achieve an energy density comparable to that of conventional high-nickel cells, but by doing without cobalt, are more sustainable, durable and cheaper. The high-tech company plans to bring the first cobalt-free high-nickel battery cells installed in vehicles onto the market as early as mid 2021. The target segment is the mid-range volume market.
As an established automotive supplier, SVOLT not only focuses on creating increasingly powerful, innovative, efficient and safer products, but also strives to realise sustainable, transparent production processes – from the mine to the recycling of battery systems.
