Safer charging

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.
