Titanate industrial storage

The TiRack63 is a storage rack for large scale energy storage applications based on Leclanché powerful Lithium Titanate cells. The main benefit of this rack is that it can be used for 15000 charge/discharge cycles at 100% Depth of Discharge. The racks can be charged at a high rate of 3C (300A) and discharge at the same high rate providing a lot of power.
TiRacks are used to build large storage systems in containers or in buildings.

Each TiRack includes:

  • 15 lithium Titanate modules
  • One Rack controller to monitor and manage the rack
  • Switch unit to connect/disconnect the rack in the large system

This product has been developed to address a number of applications where a lot of power is required like:

  • Grid stabilization in on-grid applications
  • Providing short term power to cover the first seconds in a grid failure incident to industrial users.
  • Managing the integration of renewable energy (solar and wind) into off grid applications with diesel generators (e.g. mining),

Main Features

  • 63 kWh storage capacity
  • Long cycle life of 15000 cycles at 100% Depth of Discharge
  • Rapid charging and discharging at 3C
  • Modular setup – start small and grow when needed

Graphite/NMC industrial storage

The Graphite Rack is a storage rack for large scale energy storage applications based on Leclanché high energy Lithium Graphite/NMC cells. The main benefit of this rack is that it can be used for 8000 charge/discharge cycles at 80% Depth of Discharge. The racks can be charged at a high rate of 1C (300A) and discharge at 2.3C to provide a high flow of energy when required.

Graphite Racks are used to build large storage systems in containers or in buildings.
Each Graphite Rack includes:

  • 10 Lithium Graphite/NMC modules
  • One Rack controller to monitor and manage the rack
  • Switch unit to connect/disconnect the rack in the large system
This product has been developed to address a number of applications where a lot of power is required like:

  • Grid stabilization in on-grid applications
  • Shifting renewable energy to off load at a later moment (e.g. at night)
  • Managing the integration of renewable energy (solar and wind) into off grid applications with diesel generators (e.g. mining),
  • Providing backup power for extended time.
Main Features
  • 96 kWh storage capacity
  • Long cycle life of 8000 cycles at 80% Depth of Discharge
  • Rapid charging at 1C and discharging at 2.3C
  • Modular setup – start small and grow when needed

Solar street lighting – light without the powerline

Providing light at night even in remote locations is important for safety and security. However in many locations there is no ready infrastructure to connect streetlights.

Powering streetlights also requires a lot of energy which most of time is generated by conventional (coal- or gas fired) power installations, creating CO2 and other greenhouse gasses.

Generating the energy for the streetlight locally with solar PV panels has a lot of benefits but to convert the solar power into night-time light it needs to be stored.

Leclanché provides a complete solar streetlight storage solution which consists of Leclanché Lithium Ion battery modules together with a battery management system and light control system.

The battery modules are based on Leclanché Lithium Titanate cells which provide a lifetime of more than 20 years to the streetlamp with a very high reliability.

Their large operational temperature range from -20°C to +55°C make them very suitable for operation in remote areas both in cool and in warm climates. Streetlights with Leclanché battery modules are operating in the desert in Abu-Dhabi where the temperature inside the mast easily reached over 50 degrees.

Modular to increase autonomy time
The battery systems is modular so depending on the location and the spread in day/night time over the year a customer may decide to add more capacity. This way the autonomy time of a street lamp can be increased from one night to two or even three without recharging the battery. This is important for situations where the solar panels will not provide enough energy to charge the battery (e.g. when covered with snow or during a sand storm).

About us

Company details

Company profile

Leclanché designs, develops and manufactures customized energy storage solutions for electricity generation and transmission, mass transportation, heavy industrial machines and specialty battery systems. Through recent acquisitions we have positioned ourselves as a fully vertically integrated battery energy storage solution provider. We offer our customers multi-technology lithium-ion battery systems dimensioned to meet their specific application needs within a given operating environment, depending on whether they require high energy density or high cycle stability and fast charging, or a combination of both.

Within our targeted markets, our customers include original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), distributors and end-users. We aim to work in close cooperation with our customers to develop battery energy storage solutions that meet their specific needs, including in collaboration with partners or other strategic alliances. Alongside our customer-focused approach, we also continue to research and develop the next generation of lithium-ion batteries which will ultimately assist our customers in developing new innovative products and solutions. We are organized around three specific markets sectors, a system engineering and delivering unit and a technology and industrial team. Below is an overview of the company organizational structure.

Stationary Storage Systems sells customized systems to support customers in both electricity generation markets (such as renewable energy integration, micro-grid or distributed power) and in transmission & distribution markets (so-called grid ancillary services).
Speciality Battery Systems develops and delivers both turn-key customized solutions and off-the-shelf solutions incorporating battery storage and/or charging solutions utilizing both in-house and third-party technologies.
Mobile Storage Systems sells customised systems to support customers in the mass transportation and industrial machinery markets.
System Engineering and Delivery is responsible for module assembly, design, project implementation and services for all commercial business units.
Technology and Industrial Team is responsible for group-wide electrochemistry research and development and production of large format lithium-ion cells which are at the core of the business units commercial solutions.

With over a century of experience in making batteries combined with our modern, automated production facility enable us to design, develop and manufacture high-quality, innovative products. Renewable energies play an increasingly important role in our global energy supply and through our continuous investment in research, development and the latest production technologies we strive to be at the forefront of renewable energy storage solutions.

Own cell manufacturing
Leclanché has a large scale lithium ion cell manufacturing plant in Willstätt in Germany where all our Lithium Titanate and Lithium Graphite/NMC cells are produced.

This state-of-the art factory has the capability to produce both technologies on the same line which gives high flexibility in delivering to customer requirements.

The production of cathodes is water based avoiding the use of harmful solvents.
