UK developer and manufacturer of lithium-ion and sodium-ion battery cells, AMTE Power, has received UN38.3 transportation testing certification for a sodium-ion cell.
The accreditation for its Ultra Safe sodium-ion product is part of the firm’s commercialisation plans, allowing it to access global markets as an essential standard for the safe transportation of cells. The protocol includes identifying/classifying cells; testing/qualification requirements; design guidance/conditions and packaging/shipping obligations.
Alan Hollis, CEO at AMTE Power, welcomed the news, stating that battery energy storage will play a “fundamental role” in decarbonisation.
AMTE Power plc (LON:AMTE) is a recognised brand in the production of high-quality lithium-ion batteries across a range of markets including automotive, aerospace, defence, oil & gas and energy storage. They have been been producing cells for over 30 years at their factory in Scotland, which can trace its roots back to the birth of lithium-ion battery cell technology, first patented in the UK.
