2016-09-14 / The new powerCUBE range with AGM technology for commercial vehiclesThe new powerCUBE range with AGM technology for commercial vehicles

2016-09-14

FIAMM reasserts its technological leadership by introducing the new, very high performance FIAMM powerCUBE AGM range for commercial vehicles at Automechanika 2016 (Frankfurt, 13-17 September).

Strength, durability and reliability are the concepts which inspired the engineering of these batteries destined to become the market benchmark in terms of performance and long-lasting operation.

To respond to the demands of an increasingly more technological market and continuing along the path traced a few years ago with the introduction of new batteries for commercial vehicles, FIAMM developed the powerCUBE range with AGM (Absorbent Glass Material) technology in the most market common sizes (type B and C) for vehicles requiring cranking power in critical conditions, discharging/charging cycle durability and vibration resistance.

At Automechanika Frankfurt, the most important international event for mechanics, petrol service stations, auto replacement parts and accessories providers will be the venue for the world premiere of the new FIAMM range of accumulators with lithium ion technology.The objective is clear:to follow and anticipate development and requests in a sector with an extremely high technological content, like the automotive industry.FIAMM, thus, confirms its leadership in the field of accumulators and its continued commitment to the research and development of solutions with highly innovative content.

Three worldwide innovations will be present at the FIAMM stand from the 16th to the 20th of September at Automechanika in Frankfurt (Hall 3.1, Stand D91 – D95).

48V Lithium-Ion Battery: designed for the next generation of micro-hybrid vehicles, the two 48V batteries developed in collaboration with Magneti Marelli represent the state of the art from a technological point of view. The first, created for vehicles with advanced start&stop technology, weighs just 4.5 kg yet allows a 15% reduction of fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The 12 Kw nominal power, thanks to the recovery of energy while braking, guarantees the necessary sprint for extra support also during the phases of acceleration.

The second solution, conceived for vehicles in the A, B, and C segments, as well as advanced Start & Stop services, recovery of energy while braking, support during acceleration guaranteed by the first battery, allows totally electrical functioning at zero emissions for a few kilometres, thanks to 30 kw of nominal power and 700 Wh of usable energy. These innovative batteries, developed with the help of Magneti Marelli electronic technologies, offer important evolutions in the world of sustainable mobility, enabling the exploitation of new technologies that guarantee fewer emissions of pollutants and reduced fuel consumption, while above all providing clean and ecological access to urban centres.

12V Lithium-Ion Starter Battery: conceived for low-weight high performance applications, the 12V, 850 Ampere Start&Stop battery developed by FIAMM with lithium ions (size L5) was developed to meet automobile manufacturer’s increasing need to reduce weight and consumption.High tech products like those put on the market by the Italian Group are the unique solution to guarantee quality standards capable of meeting the energy needs of the new generation of vehicles without compromising on weights and volumes. The new FIAMM battery with lithium ions,850 Ampere (size L5), guarantees a saving of 15 kg compared to a lead accumulator with similar characteristics.

Passenger capacity for the Trans Tech/Motiv SST-e all-electric school buses is 30 students, or 24 students and one wheelchair.

“An electric bus can save a school district about 16 gallons of fuel a day, or around $11,000 in fuel savings over a year, not to mention maintenance savings,” said John Phraner, president of TransTech.

2013-09-04

The temporary companies consortium composed by the parent company FIAMM Energy Storage Solutions, Tozzi Sud and Nidec Asi, won the tender held by Terna for supplying 3 MW for the Codrongianos electric station in northern Sardinia.
The tender,dedicated to sodium chloride nickel solutions, is part of the impressive TERNA’s plan for safety, security of networks and modernization of the national electric system: TERNA is the first TSO in the world to enter storage solutions in his development plans.
FIAMM Energy Storage Solutions will provide 4 BESS Spring164 for a total of 256 FIAMM Sonick batteries , able to storage 4,150 kWh. The plant is aimed to stabilize the grid by storing the power station energy and make it available during the peak electricity demand and voltage drops.

2013-08-06

 FIAMM scores another key International success winning a key project in the Energy Storage world.  The tendering agency of the project, named Toucan Project, is EDF Energies Nouvelles France, the French Multi Utility Company which called for an European tender for the construction of an accumulation and distribution plant of electric energy in French Guiana.

Toucan Project, which is already in course of design and "turn key" delivery within July 2014, provides that FIAMM shall be the supplier of 5 units BESS FIAMM SPRING 164 for a total of 288 FIAMM ST 523 accumulators, suitable to offer a 4500 kWh storage capacity and a maximum release power towards the distribution grid of 1500kW x 3h. The 5 containers provided by FIAMM will be connected to the photovoltaic panels in the plant prepared in the area near to Montsinery, in the backland of the French Guiana, whose energy will be stored by them during the day for releasing it during the night hours.

2013-05-15 / FIAMM ESS and the Smart polygeneration microgrid projectFIAMM ESS and the Smart polygeneration microgrid project

2013-05-15

In 2013 FIAMM Energy Storage Solutions took part in the project " Smart microgrids polygeneration,  an agreement between Siemens Italy and the University of Genoa for the installation of a micro-grid in the campus of Savona.
The aim of the project is is to realize a model able to regulate the production and the energy consumption of Savona campus. FIAMM will provide a BESS system composed by six FIAMM SoNick batteries: the system will be able to guarantee an accumulation energy of not less than 50 kWh (ready to be expanded up to 100 kWh) and manage the accumulation of the energy produced by photovoltaic, micro gas turbine and solar concentration systems .
This demo  project is a starting point replicable also in large-scale, involving also urban and metropolitan areas . In a future not too far away , the concept of " Smart City " could become a reality and not just a futuristic project.
