Sakuu Corporation announces the launch of its pilot line and learning centre.
Fremont, CA: Sakuu Corporation launches its pilot line and learning centre. Sakuu's pilot line will generate up to 2.5 MWh of solid-state batteries per year. It will also function as a customer learning centre for the company's advanced additive manufacturing platform in the future. Sakuu is developing industry-leading technology for solid-state batteries that will be up to 50% smaller and 30% lighter than today's lithium-ion batteries, as well as substantially less expensive to mass-produce.
Sakuu has partnered with Relevant Industrial and Honeywell Process Solutions, two renowned factory design and process innovators, to help design and build its solid-state battery pilot line. Sakuu will be able to send sample products to its Early Access strategic partners thanks to this pilot line, demonstrating the viability of the battery production process. Relevant and Honeywell will assist in the process design by scaling up Sakuus patented technology from the lab to a fully operational pilot manufacturing plant.
“Relevant is excited to be part of this groundbreaking project. Combining Sakuu’s advanced technology with our experience in engineering, design and systems integration using Honeywell’s leading automation technologies, provides a unique opportunity to shape the future of manufacturing. We appreciate Sakuu’s confidence in Relevant and look forward to a long and mutually beneficial partnership,” said John Carte, CEO, Relevant Industrial.
“This is an important milestone for Sakuu. Our SSB technology development has progressed to the level where we have decided to move ahead with our plan to construct and operate a pilot facility. With the assistance of our key development partners, Relevant Industrial and Honeywell Process Solutions, the facility will be operational by end of 2021. This facility will enable us to provide our strategic customers and early access partners with solid-state batteries for their own development and testing,” said Robert Bagheri, CEO and Founder.
