Home > Press > RUSNANO and Chinese Thunder Sky Team Up to Produce State-of-the-Art Li-Ion Batteries

Abstract:
The Supervisory Council of RUSNANO has approved the corporation's participation in a project aimed at establishing the production of state-of-the-art lithium-ion batteries, the first in the country. The batteries in this collaborative undertaking will be targeted toward the growing market for green e-transportation, energy, telecommunications, and several other industrial areas.

RUSNANO and Chinese Thunder Sky Team Up to Produce State-of-the-Art Li-Ion Batteries

Russia & China | Posted on December 29th, 2009

Under the project, a plant will be built in Novosibirsk with four production lines from Thunder Sky (China), which is its coinvestor. Thunder Sky is the only company in the world engaged in mass production of rechargeable storage batteries for micro- and e-busses. Proprietary technologies of the company include a unique system for rapid - less than half an hour - battery charging and the ability to produce high-capacity up to 700 Ah batteries.

Thunder Sky's patented technology ensures that its cost of production and price at sale are considerably lower than the nearest competitors'. Its products are being tested in Europe by some of the world's largest automotive companies—Daimler Benz, Fiat, BMW, Citroen—and by Nokia for use in base stations.

The Russia-based enterprise established under this project will produce, foremost, lithium batteries for all types of electric vehicles, including motorcycles and buses with electric motors. One of the greatest advantages of these batteries is that they are free of "memory effect" after numerous cycles of charge and discharge. When used in public transportation, the batteries guarantee a 350-kilometers energy reserve after one charge. In the future, new technologies will make it possible to expand the energy reserve to 600 kilometers after one charge. Moreover, the batteries can carry out a quick recharge in only 30-minutes.

Production will begin at the Novosibirsk plant in 2011 with capacity to turn out 300 million Ah annually; capacity will rise to 400 Ah annually in 2012. A sales market is assured for the project's output: Thunder Sky plans to buy a large part of the Russian factory's products to fulfill contracts with Chinese producers of e-transport. As demand emerges in the Russian market, products from the plant will be sold there as well.

The new enterprise for realization of the project will have participation from RUSNANO, Thunder Sky Energy Group Limited, and an external coinvestor. RUSNANO will contribute 2.24 billion rubles to the equity of the new company and extend a loan of up to 5.5 billion rubles. Thunder Sky Energy Group Limited will invest the same 2.24 billion rubles in cash, technology, and intellectual property. The external coinvestor will loan 3.9 billion rubles to the project company. The budget to bring the project to fruition is estimated at 13.88 billion rubles and sales in 2015—at 17.1 billion rubles.

"In essence, the project involves a transfer to Russia of one of the most advanced technologies in the world. Manufacturing will be fully localized in our country and Russian companies will supply raw materials. We will have new, high-tech production and lower production costs in the project. The endeavor will create 500 new jobs and contribute more than seven billion rubles in taxes to federal and regional budgets between 2010 and 2015," said RUSNANO Managing Director Sergei Polikarnov, emphasizing the project's significance.

About RUSNANO
The Russian Corporation of Nanotechnologies (RUSNANO) was established in 2007 by the Federal law ¹ 139-FZ to enable Government policy in the field of Nanotechnology.

To accomplish this task, RUSNANO co-invests in nanotechnology industry projects that have high commercial potential or social benefit. Early-stage investment by RUSNANO lowers the risk of its investment partners from the private sector.

RUSNANO participates in building nanotechnology infrastructure, which includes the nanotechnology centers of excellence, business incubators and early stage investment funds. RUSNANO provides scientific and educational programs that are required for its investment projects to succeed, and also supports the popularization of nanoscience and nanotechnology. RUSNANO selects promising spheres for investment based on longer-term foresight created by the leading Russian and world experts.

To assist the Russian nanotechnology industry advance to the global market and strengthening of its international links RUSNANO develops partnerships with the leading nanotechnology centers in the world and organizes the annual Nanotechnology International Forum in Russia.
