Germany newly founded power storage factory saves power using the lithium-ion technology
Battery storage offers a stable, efficient, and reliable sources of power. Consequently, power storage in batteries incorporates lithium-ion that stores a more extensive capacity of power, and other cells use cobalt. Therefore, if a state experiences a power shortage due to higher electricity demand, the energy sector can channel the battery power into the grid system and supply energy in the country. Several countries have established state-owned firms to store electricity in batteries in either gig watts or megawatts. Germany has joined in the wave, and its newly founded power storage factory currently saves power using the lithium-ion technology.
Tesvolt is currently the company that produces storage batteries that vary in different capacities from 9.6KWh to the MWh. The company is estimated to yield a daily power capacity of 1MWh and 255MWh yearly. German has encountered an increase in energy demand tripling 2019 energy demand. The company is thus necessitated to boost the power grade to meet the high energy demands in the state. Likewise, like top-rated companies, Tesvolt has committed to providing health care to its employees during the COVID-19 pandemic that has affected numerous organizations and companies.
Despite the coronavirus, Daniel Hannemann notes that the company has attained significant turnover numbers in the opening quarter of the season. He further added that the health of their employees is the company’s top priority, and the firm will take care of its employees during the pandemic. However, Daniel revealed uncertainties of how the coronavirus will affect the power demand. He states that the company will operate more closely with its clients to aid and overcome the current challenges through innovation, elasticity, and ingenuity.
The company has placed measures to ensure that all employees are safeguarded against coronavirus while the production process is ongoing. First, the company has initiated platforms by which employees can work from home. The tactic will ensure that their workers avoid public places when boarding to work hence minimize the risks. The company isolates the employee needful in the company such that every staff works in isolation from the other. Simon Schandert, the engineering manager, stated that the company is pleased that the production process is still ongoing, and the employees’ safety is considered to minimize and control the spread of the virus.
Additionally, the company’s battery production occurs in two stages. First, the batteries are charges then discharged in an automated procedure, and defects are checked. Likewise, factors like the voltage, temperature, and resistance should comply with the standards. Lastly, full automation is conducted that involves a selection of high qualities batteries to the next level and removal of low-quality cells.
