Galvion’s advanced lithium-ion battery technology strengthens
Stryten’s Military and Government energy storage portfolio.
Alpharetta, Ga., November 15, 2021 –Stryten Energy LLC, a U.S.-based energy storage solutions provider, today announced it has acquired the assets of Galvion Vehicle Power, a division of Galvion Inc., a developer of advanced protective equipment, power management and data solutions for military and tactical clients worldwide.
The acquisition comes as the Biden administration, and notably the U.S. Department of Defense, are redoubling the commitment to boost U.S. manufacturing capabilities of highly specialized lithium-ion batteries. These batteries are vital to U.S. military preparedness, energy security and the advancement of clean energy goals.
Galvion has developed groundbreaking, safe and reliable lithium-ion energy storage solutions to meet demanding military requirements. Galvion’s Symbasys SWitchPack™ and SWATPACK™ lithium battery products will join Stryten’s newly formed Military and Government Division’s suite of power solutions that serves the public sector market. Solutions will include advanced lead and lithium battery technologies for submarines, combat vehicles, microgrids and ground logistics applications.
The SWitchPack i6T Li-ion vehicle battery is at the forefront of battery technology, powering the increasing number of electronic subsystems in current and future military vehicles. The i6T meets demanding military standards, including MIL-STD-1275, MIL-STD-810 and MIL-PRF-32565B when subjected to extensive ballistic and non-ballistic penetration, as well as UN 38.3 commercial safety standards.
The SWATPACK Li-ion battery allows modular and scalable energy systems for Silent Watch on tactical vehicles. Able to withstand the most challenging battlefield environments with a balance of lifecycle and energy density, this flexible system adapts to a wide variety of vehicle platforms requiring scalable energy from 4kWhr to over 100kWhr. The SWATPACK meets industry safety requirements (UL 2580 and UN38.3) and military standards (MIL-STD 1275D, MIL-STD 810).
