Skeletal technologiesmanufacturer of energy storage, works together with Siemens at a new supercapacitor factory in Germany. “The collaboration aims to digitize Skeleton’s entire value chain—from supercapacitor element design to manufacturing and services—and scale up production of next-generation supercapacitors,” says Skeleton.
“Thanks to our comprehensive portfolio of automation and digitization, we can use the relevant tools and our industrial know-how together with Skeleton, from new site planning to factory simulation and optimized high-end production, to realize a highly efficient, fully automated production line that is unique in the world “, – says the head of Siemens Digital Industries Germany, Guido Feind.
“Effects of scale achieved by using Siemens’ advanced technologies combined with the use of Skeleton’s patented ‘bent graphene’ material are expected to reduce production costs by almost 90% after the completion of this 5-year project,” says Skeleton.
Modular commercial and industrial real estate company ecoPARKs supports the new plant. “Our ecoPARK, currently under construction, will have the highest environmental standards based on the circular economy, energy efficiency and the use of solar energy on the entire roof area for local consumption,” says ecoPARK managing partner Wilm Schwartzpaul.
Skeleton Technologies says it will invest 100 million euros ($101.5 million) in production equipment and an additional 120 million euros ($121.8 million) in scale-up and research and development of the new factory, which is slated for production in 2024 and will produce up to 12 million supercapacitor cells per year.
Compared to its first production site in Saxony, Skeleton Technologies says the new factory will have 40 times more production. The first production site in Saxony “will continue to operate as a research and development factory in the future.”
“This growth will allow us to meet market demand for our next-generation products and make our new factory the largest and most advanced supercapacitor factory in Europe,” says Skeleton Technologies COO Dr. Linus Frabuse.
