Immersion cooled battery solutions
Driving a safe and sustainable future
Unleash 48% more peak power and benefit from 40% faster peak charge rate with our revolutionary immersion cooled battery solutions.
Ricardo’s immersion cooled battery technology is being applied to applications in passenger vehicles, aircraft and commercial vehicles to name a few. Our innovative battery packs are proven to peak charge rate by 40% whilst delivering up to 48% higher peak power density.
As a leading global engineering consultancy with technical centres located globally, Ricardo is uniquely placed to deliver innovative solutions for a wide range of markets. Our Immersion cooled battery pack solutions are offered in the following market sectors: Passenger vehicles, commercial vehicles, off-highway vehicles, high-performance vehicles, aerospace.
In addition to this our customers also include battery cell/pack suppliers and dielectric coolant suppliers where we can help them demonstrate the innovations offered by their products.
Immersion cooling has a number of benefits including increased pack longevity with up to 22% longer battery lifetime.
Benefit from longer range in a smaller package with Ricardo’s capability to fit more than 1000 cells in a module, yielding more energy in the same volume. Our battery technology is capable of lowering pack material cost and in turn vehicle cost.
As a result of Ricardo's experience in immersion cooling technology, clients benefit from rapid development times. Ricardo can develop an immersion cooled module from clean sheet in just 9 months, depending on requirements.
Our clients enjoy safer, more reliable vehicles as Ricardo testing has shown immersion cooling prevents thermal runaway, resulting in 2.7 times higher cooling capacity.
Our expert teams can support your organisation or project with a custom battery pack, bespoke for your desired application. Our solutions can also be delivered fully integrated with our other innovative technologies including:
- Battery Management System
