CATL - The World's Largest Maker of Lithium-Ion Batteries
Contemporary Amperex Technology Co., Limited (CATL) is the world’s largest maker of lithium-ion batteries with an annual sales volume of 34 GWh in 2020.
Headquartered in the city of Ningde, east China’s Fujian Province, CATL with businesses covering R&D, manufacturing and sales in battery systems for new energy vehicles and energy storage systems. The company is committed to providing cutting-edge solutions for global new energy applications.
The World's Leading Battery Technology
In terms of energy storage battery technology route selection, Ningde era adheres to the lithium iron phosphate battery route; in product and process design, Ningde era adopts a square aluminum shell energy storage cell structure, which has high strength, good air tightness, and a reliable life of more than 20 years. ; Its unique anti-explosion valve design can relieve pressure in a timely and directional manner, and balance the air pressure inside and outside the cell.
In addition, the system structure and electrical safety design (multi-stage breaking and quick plug) can help prevent the generation of ignition sources.
At present, the 271Ah&280Ah lithium iron phosphate batteries, 1P20S electric boxes and 1P20S*17 electric cabinets, 280Ah 1P52S electric boxes and 1P52S*8 electric cabinets produced by CATL have completed the UL 9540A test (the UL 9540A test was proposed by UL and is used for A test method for evaluating the spread of large-scale thermal runaway fires in battery energy storage systems.).
In addition to UL 9540A, CATL has also passed a series of domestic and foreign certifications such as GB/T 36276, IEC 62619, 62477-1 LVD, 61000-6-2/-4 EMC and UL 1973, which will promote the home energy storage business of the CA. Global layout.
