By Becky Schultz24 March 2023
Xing Mobility, a Taiwan-based supplier of immersion cooling battery technology for industrial applications, has announced a strategic partnership with Nordic Booster for electrification solutions for industrial vehicle applications in the North European market.
Nordic Booster is a Norwegian provider of battery solutions for construction equipment and mobile high-power charging systems for heavy-duty industrial vehicles and industrial products. The collaboration between the companies will bring XING Mobility’s Immersio XM25 immersion-cooled battery system to the construction, agriculture and mining industrial vehicle market in Northern Europe.
The automotive-grade, scalable battery pack has a variety of industrial applications, such as load haul dump (LHD) machines, tractors, excavators and commercial fleets, as well as stationary energy storage systems (ESS). The battery boasts enhanced fire safety and active suppression of thermal runaway.
Nordic Booster has provided Xing Mobility batteries since 2019 and is the exclusive distributor for its products in the region. Under the partnership, it will offer the Immersio XM25 product for the electrification of construction and mining vehicles. The system will also be included in the mobile charging stations built by Nordic Booster, including Boost Charger, Hummingbird and other applications.
Nordic Booster has already ordered a total of 2 MWh Immersio XM25 systems. The system is currently in mass production and available for delivery.
“We are thrilled to partner with XING Mobility and bring their advanced immersion-cooled battery technology to the market,” said Jannik Stanger, CTO of Nordic Booster. “Immersion-cooled batteries are the next game changer in battery technology due to very high anti-thermal runaway risks and the very promising life-cycle testing, indicating a 100% improvement compared to standard cooling technology. These features will bring the XM25 product to the leading position while still using standard Li-ion cells.”
