Battery cell maker AMTE Power has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with an automotive engineering company to support the development of next-generation electric vehicles.
The non-binding agreement with Cosworth paves the way for AMTE Power to supply its ultra high power (UHP) cells for use in Cosworth’s advanced propulsion technologies.
Partnering with leading OEMs, Cosworth designs battery and electric vehicle services to power the high-performance automotive, aerospace and marine sectors. Following its recent acquisition of electrification specialist Delta, the company has accelerated its development of battery systems to complement its electrified powertrains and motors.
AMTE Power’s cellular technology will be used in Cosworth’s technologies which are being developed at the engineering company’s facilities.
Hal Reisiger, Managing Director of Cosworth, said: “At Cosworth, we are committed to playing a leading role in the development of future technologies in the high performance automotive field. We have accumulated an enviable wealth of cross-industry experience that enables us to deliver and integrate industry-leading solutions into the most specialized client programs.
“Through our battery offering, we can supply and integrate high power systems from flexible and scalable modules at low volumes. The new cooperation with AMTE Power will further strengthen our existing capabilities in this important area.”
AMTE Power recently announced a series of business opportunities as it ramps up production of its next-generation battery cells to support the Net Zero transition. To support this growth, the company recently unveiled the location of its first mega-factory in Dundee, Scotland, which will allow AMTE Power to produce its cells in the UK on an industrial scale.
Kevin Brundish, Managing Director of AMTE Power, added: “There is a growing need for advanced next-generation battery cells for use in technologies to power the Net Zero transition. This collaboration with Cosworth is the start of a partnership that will see our market-leading UHP cell used to power electric vehicles in the high-performance automotive, aerospace and marine markets. »
