Forsee Power Starts Light EV Battery Production In India

European multinational producer of smart lithium-ion electric vehicle (EV) battery systems, Forsee Power, that entered the Indian market in 2020, has begun the production of a series of EV batteries for electric two and three-wheelers at its Pune plant.

As a manufacturer and supplier of energy management systems in Europe, Asia, and North America, Forsee partners with OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) to enable their transition to electrification. In India its focus is on the two/ three-wheelers segment , and bus segment. Of course, these two happen to be the most active currently, backed by private adoption in case of electric two and three wheelers, and state backing for bus based public transportation.

The firms new battery production factory is located in Pune’s Chakan Industrial Area, 35 km from Pune Airport was started on May 12 this year. Chakan is a major automotive hub, with Bajaj Auto based there, among others.

The battery production plant is furnished with state-of-the-art assembly lines as well as laboratories and testing capabilities. It includes automatic spot-welding capabilities on cylindrical cells, production and control equipment, BMS testers as well as high-voltage and end-of-line testing equipment.

Additionally, one more assembly line will be added later this year to ramp up production capacities for light electric vehicles, especially for three-wheelers, which are a key area of focus in India’s FAME II national plan for electromobility, according to Forsee.

The company has committed to extending its range to high voltage systems for bus, marine, rail, industrial and commercial vehicles by 2023. Consequently, it claims that its India-based  production capacity will progressively reach 1 GWh by 2025.

On the sustainability and clean energy resources front, Solar Panels will be installed in the production plant to maintain a 50 percent share of renewable energy in the plant’s energy consumption. Other objectives include reduction in production waste and a rate of 100 percent of waste sent to recycling or revalorization, as per the company’s claims.
