A new type of battery manufactured in Thurso has gone for testing with a customer in what has been described as “a crucial first step”.
AMTE Power, which develops and manufactures lithium-ion and sodium-ion battery cells for specialist markets, has high hopes for its Ultra Prime product.
The first cells have been delivered for testing by a customer whose identity is not currently being disclosed, with more to be shipped as part of the development programme.
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.
