Alelion Energy Systems which will supply lithium-ion batteries for AGVs
German manufacturer of heavy vehicles KAMAG Transporttechnik has partnered with Alelion Energy Systems which will supply lithium-ion batteries for its AGVs.

The KAMAG order is a significant move for Alelion into a new segment and an important step towards Sweden's first factory for large-scale production of lithium-ion batteries for vehicles.
"This order is an important milestone and proves that Alelion also plays a central role when it comes to the electrification of heavy vehicles," says Daniel Troedsson, CEO of Alelion.

Alelion will deliver a first batch of batteries in 2018. The remainder of the order, valued at approximately SEK15 million (USD1.7 million), will be delivered during 2019.

The heavy vehicle segment is an important part of the future for lithium-ion batteries, according to Alelion.

KAMAG's planned electrified truck is a multi-purpose vehicle to be used with semi-trailers and for transporting goods in ports, warehouses, mail- and package handling sites – as well as on production sites and at airports. The driverless version of the KAMAG E-Wiesel AGV (Automated Guided Vehicle) truck is adapted for automated logistic centres.

The multi-purpose vehicle can be configured with a maximum of four battery packs for optimised range and efficiency.
