XING Mobility targeting industrial equipment

EV battery and powertrain manufacturer XING Mobility has partnered with EST-Floattech to target construction and industrial equipment markets in Europe.

Taiwan’s XING Mobility has signed a dealer distribution agreement with Norway’s EST-Floattech.


XING Mobility has developed the “Immersio Modular Battery System”, a stackable energy solution that can be configured to meet different size, shape and power needs. EST-Floattech is a developer and distributer of integrated electric and hybrid systems with offices in Norway and the Netherlands, and representation in Germany.


“The partnership combines XING Mobility’s experience in EV battery technology with EST-Floattech’s highly regarded reputation in energy storage and system integration with equipment manufacture industries. EST- Floattech has earned status in the industry as a highly reliable supplier of safe energy storage systems and has become a world leader in electric and hybrid systems for vessels and marine equipment throughout Europe. The company are affiliated with the Pon Group, one of the largest family firms in the Netherlands with more than 12,000 employees worldwide, operating in 32 different countries in nine fields of activity,” the companies stated.


Under the long-term strategic cooperation agreement, XING Mobility will supply battery packs for EST-Floatech to promote, distribute and service. “We believe Europe to be the most advanced and sophisticated market for the electrification of land-based industrial equipment due to increasingly demanding emissions regulations in the region amongst other drivers,” said XING Mobility CEO Royce Hong. “We are confident that our battery innovations, combined with EST-Floattech’s experience and impressive credentials, will help to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicle technology in the construction, mining and material handling equipment industries”.


With regard to material and container handling applications, a fully electric machine that can deliver the required capacity at the higher end of the range (40T plus) is still a challenge, even with stackable battery systems. Asked whether an XING battery can support a laden container handler over an eight-hour shift, Operation manager at EST-Floatech Jannik Stanger said this would require a massive battery.


Assuming an engine in the 300-400 HP range (223kW to 298kW), and the average load on the machine to be 50% of the maximum diesel engine power, the battery needs to deliver around 125kW of power per hour. Over eight hours that would require 1000 kWh of battery capacity. “To reduce the costs and volume on the vessel, we would normally suggest to use 3-400 kWh battery capacity. After 4 hours operation, you can then charge the machine to full in less than 1 hour,” Stanger said.
