Intertek Investing In Battery Test Equipment

Intertek : 30 August, 2010  (Company News)
Next generation batteries with improved energy and reduced environmental impact are the subject of research being conducted by energy specialist, Intertek
Intertek has made significant investments in new battery/energy storage test equipment throughout Europe, North America, and Asia. Recently the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) indicated a move toward 'next generation' batteries which allow longer and faster run times, reduce dependence on other sources of energy, lessen the environmental impact of modern technologies, and lead to smaller and lighter electronics. Next generation batteries are predicted to impact nearly every industry, including solar energy, electric vehicles, wind energy, medical, IT and aerospace. Intertek is now poised to assist manufacturers to ensure battery safety, reliability and conformance to regulatory standards.

Specifically addressing the rapidly evolving automotive battery market (hybrid electric, plug-in hybrid electric, and electric vehicles), Intertek’s Detroit, Michigan laboratory recently purchased 5 moderate and large format battery cycling systems. In addition to over 500 small format battery test stations, the new systems offer the ability to test up 30 mid-size and large format battery packs, for military, electric vehicle, and backup power/UPS applications.

“With rapid advancements in battery and power source technologies, Intertek is responding to the needs of the market by investing in state-of-the-art test equipment around the world,” said Tim Hubbard, Director of Operations. “Combined with our energy storage advisory services, existing simulated durability and environmental test capabilities, Intertek is the only global, full-service provider that enables manufacturers to rapidly develop and launch safer, more reliable products that are dependant on power sources.”

Along with the 2009 acquisition of Sagentia Catella AB, a world-renowned laboratory and consultancy for the battery/energy storage industry, this expansion fortifies Intertek’s position as the premier global service provider for battery and energy storage manufacturers.
