Lithium revolution: exchange every 10 years the electrolyte

As mentioned above, the OGRON technology is using only active materials and no additives. As a result, only the electrolyte is determining the length of the useful life of the cells.

  BMS message: Please exchange the electrolyte

With conventional technologies, the space of the electrolyte, over time, is drying out. In addition, as a result of degradation, the electrolyte is loosing, irreversibly, particles reducing the cell performance. These increasing volumes of particles are moving to the electrodes' surface, or are remaining in the electrolytic solution and/or in the gas space of the cell.

The OGRON technology is combining innovations of the cell construction with a permanent control of the electrolyte. As soon as the electrolytic solution is showing signs of deterioration (likely after 10 years), the battery management system will report this. The problem can be solved by replacing the electrolyte through built-in valves.

  Suitable for large amounts of energy

A fascinating invention, making the storage of large amounts of energy (10 and more MW ) possible.

The Technical University of Delft has supported Franz W. Winterberg (the founder of GAIA Akkumulatorenwerke in Germany), the inventor, since 1995. Dr. Erik Kelder, together with his team of scientists, is prepared to assist him and OGRON during the construction of a proto-type facility to manufacture these revolutionary batteries.

Lithium has the best expectations to solve our problems at our mobility and the day/night balancing of a photovoltaic oriented power supply.

  Break through at lithium batteries

Much longer service life and an evident reduction at the production costs. A new generation of lithium energy storage crucial for oil exit and climate protection.

Revolution at lithium batteries
A recent development of OGRON BV, the Dutch company, is promising to revolutionise the Lithium battery technology and battery and energy storage technologies in general.

New lithium technic without thermical problems
This invention is avoiding all thermal problems which, sofar, are customary for conventionally manufactured Lithium batteries.

Large Ion Battery Technology and Application
Henny Wiggers, managing director of OGRON BV, announced that the company will be present during the 5th International Symposium of Large Ion Battery Technology and Application

Significant contributions to the new lithium energy storage
Microtech (OGRON USA) developt in the last 4 years a special coiler and an automatic package system for the cells, making it easy to exchange the electrolyt.
