Indian Area Analysis Organisation (ISRO) stated that it has acquired response from 141 firms to its Request For Qualification (RFQ) for expertise switch of the lithium-ion cell to Indian industries.
In June, ISRO had issued RFQ in reference to the expertise switch, containing a short description of the qualification features, expertise switch course of, timelines and different related particulars.
ISRO’s VSSC has efficiently developed and certified lithium ion cells of capacities starting from 1.5 Ah to 100 Ah to be used in satellites and launch automobiles.
“Vikram Sarabhai Area Centre (VSSC) has acquired response from 141 firms for its lithium ion cell expertise,” ISRO stated in its web site RPT web site.
In response to the house company, lithium-ion (Li-ion) cell expertise is without doubt one of the “most promising” electrochemical power storage applied sciences owing to its excessive voltage, excessive power density, lengthy life cycle and excessive storage traits.
It finds large functions in digital devices, tele-communication and industrial functions in addition to in aerospace.
The latest progresses in Li-ion battery expertise have made it the favorite powersource for electrical and hybrid electrical automobiles.
With the profitable deployment of indigenous lithium ion batteries in numerous missions, ISRO stated, VSSC is planningto switch this expertise to the industries to establishproduction amenities for producing lithium ion cells to coverthe complete spectrum of energy storage necessities of thecountry.
Floating the RFQ, ISRO had earlier stated, “This initiative is predicted to allow Zero Emission Coverage of India and speed up the event of indigenous electrical car business.”
