Turntide Technologies has announced the launch of the Turntide Lithium-ion NMC Battery Pack, a new product line offering a scalable modular design with greater energy density in a lighter, smaller form factor than the previous Hyperdrive battery line.
The new battery pack combines automotive-quality nickel-manganese-cobalt (NMC) cells with an integrated battery management system (BMS) to deliver unparalleled energy density and performance. The new Turntide battery is purpose-built for high performance in the rugged and harsh operating conditions of off-highway vehicle applications such as construction, agricultural equipment, marine, and rail.
“The construction equipment industry and other commercial vehicle sectors urgently require compact battery solutions with higher energy density, occupying less space and ensuring system durability,” said Mark Cox, general manager of Turntide’s transport business unit. “Utilizing NMC chemistry, we developed a sophisticated battery that meets the rigorous demands of commercial use. Combined with our systems-level expertise, Turntide can partner with global OEMs to develop the ideal solution for a variety of applications.”
The batteries are available in 44v (4.5 kWh and 6.7 kWh) and 52v (5.3 kWh and 8 kWh) with air liquid cooling options. The modular battery packs can connect in series for systems up to 500V and in parallel for different energy capacities. Turntide also offers a range of matched inverters to streamline vehicle integration and shorten time to market.
“At Turntide our focus is creating top-tier battery technology tailored to the unique needs of commercial fleets,” said Russell Stoddart, vice president of battery solutions at Turntide. “Safety and adaptability are core to our design. Our technology is already powering thousands of construction machines, and OEMs we are excited about continuing to accelerate the electrification and sustainability of the industry.”
