Taiwanese battery technology specialist Xing Mobility has signed a distribution agreement with Amsterdam-based EST-Floattech, to bring its advanced powertrain solutions to construction and mining markets in Europe.

Xing, founded in 2015 by former NASA and Tesla engineer, Azizi Tucker, released its immersion-cooled battery system in 2017, demonstrating that its concept of submerging lithium-ion cells directly in engineered fluid can enable continuous high-discharge power output, improve battery life and increase stability.

The company says it patented modular format also allows its battery packs to be stacked and interlocked into any shape and size.

Xing will supply its battery packs to EST-Floattech, which will use its significant customer network to promote, distribute and service them throughout Europe.

The two companies say the rapid deployment and fast prototyping capabilities of Xing’s modular technology will be instrumental in enabling the partnership to deliver electrified fleets to industrial equipment manufacturers in line with market demands.

Xing Mobility’s CEO Royce Hong said, “We believe Europe to be the most advanced and sophisticated market for the electrification of land-based industrial equipment due to increasingly demanding emissions regulations in the region amongst other drivers.

“We are confident that our battery innovations, combined with EST-Floattech’s experience and impressive credentials, will help to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicle technology in the construction, mining and material handling equipment industries”.
