Engineering Limited, a global tier-1 auto component supplier, has entered an
agreement to manufacture EV battery management system (BMS) in India for
LiTHIUM BALANCE A/S, a Danish BMS solutions provider. As per the agreement,
Varroc will manufacture BMS for lithium-ion batteries for electric two-wheelers
and three-wheelers at its manufacturing facility in Pune.
BALANCE A/S has over the years won several innovation awards across the world. Lithium-ion battery technology has become mainstream in varied
uses from personal electronics to transport and industrial applications because
of the largest energy density per volume and weight it offers.
BMS plays the vital role of managing the inherently unstable lithium-ion
batteries by performing critical tasks such as monitoring the state of the
battery, thermal management, communication with other hardware and protection
by preventing it from operating outside its safe operating area.
Jain, President – Electrical & Electronics Business, Varroc, said, “As
we’ve stated before, Varroc’s direction is to drive growth by leveraging
sustainable automotive trends like the desire to be greener, safer, smarter and
connected. Today at Varroc, we supply almost the entire electrical-electronic
system for IC Engine. We aim to do the same for the electric vehicle. Our
collaboration with LiTHIUM BALANCE is another step in this direction.”
Torpe, VP – Sales & marketing at LiTHIUM BALANCE said, “Our confidence in
Varroc’s capabilities is accentuated by their focus on developing technologies
for electric and connected vehicles in India. We are glad to have partnered
with the company that shares our vision to develop technologies for greener
means of transportation.”
