Toshiba Corporation announced that it will reinforce production of its SCiBTM lithium-ion rechargeable battery with the construction of a new production facility in Yokohama, Kanagawa prefecture. For more information see the IDTechEx report on Advanced Li-ion and Beyond Li-Ion Batteries 2018-2028.
Toshiba Infrastructure Systems & Solutions Corporation, a key Toshiba Group company that specializes in the social infrastructure business, currently manufactures SCiBTM at its Kashiwazaki Operations facility in Kashiwazaki, Niigata prefecture, and promotes the SCiBTM in Japan and overseas.
The SCiBTM delivers long life operation, rapid charging, high input and output power and a large effective capacity. It operates across a wide temperature range and is very safe. Since its introduction in 2008, its versatility and reliability have won the battery application in electric and hybrid electric vehicles, the drive systems of railroad cars, and energy storage systems in substations.
Anticipating strong future demand for SCiBTM, Toshiba has decided to build an additional production plant in Toshiba's Yokohama Complex. The facility will also serve as a production technology development center, positioning TISS to respond positively to future expansion of the lithium-ion rechargeable battery market. Toshiba Group will continue to meet customer needs by reinforcing production of SCiBTM.
