Ultracapacitor maker Skeleton Technologies has shifted manufacturing from Tallinn, Estonia to the plant it set up in Dresden, Germany last year, the firm announced on July 19.
“The rest of our machinery was moved there to have all the production’s relevant processes together in one place,” vice president marketing and communications Sylvia Kleimann told our sister publication BESB.
Kleimann says the annual capacity of the plant will be four million cells.
“Part of our team has been relocated to the manufacturing side in Germany, but our module development team stays in Tallinn and will be added to with further employees,” she said.
“We have a close relationship with the university in Tallinn and very good experience with the engineering and technician competence in Estonia, and this is why the development of the modules will stay there.”
Skeleton Technologies is known for its ‘Skel’ range of ultracapacitor-based energy storage systems, which it says can be used in all kinds of applications.
“Our orders are coming from different industries, including automotive, logistics, aerospace, heavy machinery, materials handling and many more,” Kleimann said.
Last month this publication reported how Skeleton had made three announcements during the ees and Intersolar 2018 exhibition and conference in Munich — including the introduction of its grid-scale Skelgrid Omni technology that can be integrated alongside a UPS to provide short-term back-up power
