Advanced composites manufacturer Quickstep and battery casing technology company Vaulta are to collaborate to develop new electric technologies.
The companies have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to develop new products and capabilities for renewables and electric-powered land and air vehicles.
Vaulta is developing battery casings that promise reduced cost, complexity weight and space usage while increasing efficiencies.
The company’s no-weld design also make for easier assembly and contain more reusable parts.
Quickstep makes advanced aerospace structures for major defence suppliers, giving the partners significant market reach.
Quickstep CEO Mark Burgess said consumers were showing greater interest in electric flight.
“To cater for this we need more sophisticated systems in battery casings.
“We have already commenced working on our first customer proposal with the Vaulta team.”
