Scottish battery cell pioneer AMTE Power has hailed a key milestone after delivering its first “Ultra Prime” cells to a customer for testing.
The Ultra Prime product is a non-rechargeable cell designed for use in some of the most difficult environments on earth, with very high energy density and high-temperature performance. AMTE said the Scottish-made cell also has a low self-discharge, making it well suited for applications where temperature, high pressure and accessibility are key factors.
The cells were manufactured at the company’s purpose-built cell manufacturing facility in Thurso, Caithness.
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.
