Agility Fuel Solutions and Romeo Power Technology Partner to Provide High-Performance, Modular Battery Packs for Commercial Vehicles
COSTA MESA and VERNON, CA – May 2, 2018 – Agility Fuel Solutions, a leading global provider of clean fuel solutions for medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles, and Romeo Power Technology, the energy storage technology company founded by engineers and designers from SpaceX, Tesla, Amazon and Samsung, announced today a partnership for the production of high-performance, modular battery packs for commercial vehicles.
Agility and Romeo have entered into an exclusive global agreement whereby Romeo will supply custom-designed battery modules to Agility for Class 4-8 vehicles. Agility will use its extensive experience in onboard energy storage to integrate those modules into highly configurable battery packs for the wide range of battery capacities and physical configurations best suited to individual vehicles and applications in the global truck and bus markets.
Romeo battery modules and packs are the lightest and most compact available, with the highest volumetric and gravimetric energy density on the market. They take up less space than competing packs, feature enhanced state-of-charge and state-of-health monitoring, and are engineered to exceed stringent government safety requirements.
“We’re very excited about the partnership with Agility to supply modules on an exclusive basis for applications in the Class 4-8 commercial vehicle market,” said Romeo Founder and CEO Mike Patterson. “With Agility’s extensive experience and commitment to excellence, we’ll provide the best-in-class solution for clean-air commercial fleets.”
“Successful electrification and hybridization of commercial vehicles will enable fleets to meet their emission and return on investment targets by taking advantage of the undeniable efficiency of electric drivetrains,” said Todd Sloan, Agility’s SVP – Innovation and New Business Development. “Our partnership with Romeo will leverage their best-in-class battery technology with Agility’s strengths in energy storage application engineering, commercial vehicle OEM program management and aftermarket support for dealers and fleets.”
