Energy storage systems
It is widely recognised that the adoption of hydrogen in land-based transport systems is likely to materialise first in off-highway applications, largely due to demands on uptime and reducing operational costs. The industry needs pressure vessels that can store the volume of hydrogen required.
Composite battery enclosures for light duty mini earth movers, such as mini diggers and track barrows, are also becoming ever more important to provide a lightweight solution. Having the ability to reduce sealing surfaces and welds that are often porous in traditional metal enclosures is key. By using composites, we can increase the ability to contain thermal events and ensure that we can control thermal propagation into neighbouring structures.
