Contour Advanced Systems (CAS), started with partners this pilot 'Accumulation Project' for assembly of free shape modular battery packs for the purpose of a growing market of special tailor made vehicles, in which the developed packs will be integrated. Within the project, there will be special attention to storage, re-use and fire safety capacity. In addition, anticipation on changing laws and regulations will be taken into account. For CAS, the main focus is on development of:
- Extinguishing method for battery packs;
- Early warning systems for fire detection;
- Container extinguish system for several applications.
Besides CAS, partners in this project are: DNV-GL Netherlands, Hencon Holding, Smart Commute, Technical University Twente, Van Raam and Safety Region Twente.
