AMPLiFII (Automated Module-to-Pack Pilot Line for Industrial Innovation) will create a UK supply chain for fully qualified battery packs to suit hybrid and electric vehicles across a broad range of markets. By creating a modular battery architecture, based on standard format cylindrical cells, developed for both high power and high energy requirements, the supply chain will be able to aggregate demand for components from
different OEM’s applications and achieve some economies of scale. WMG is leading the project and hosting the special purpose pilot manufacturing line within the EIC. The facility will be available after project completion for industrial collaboration with other battery manufacturers looking to conduct prove out trials of new module manufacturing technology.
