Proventia is a Finnish technology company that develops and supplies advanced technologies for the engine, machine and vehicle industries to help accelerate improvements in energy efficiency. The company’s products and technologies improve fuel economy and reduce CO2 emissions of off-road machinery. Proventia has now launched a new battery platform for the harshest operational environments.
The ePRO500+ is based on the same modular construction as company’s smaller battery product, the ePRO48. ePRO500+ offers flexible tailoring of capacity and voltage to meet the strictest demands of hybrid and fully electric off-road machinery. The Proventia battery platform is based on lithium titanate oxide (LTO) technology, which has proved to be the optimal solution for power-intensive applications. LTO battery technology’s benefits in off-road usage range from a wide temperature window (from -30 to +60°C) to a long lifetime and a high level of safety. LTO batteries have high discharge rates as well.
The Proventia ePRO500+ is a perfect match for off-highway machinery, when high power and the utmost operational safety matter. It features robust mechanical construction that, combined with the most durable packaging, means it lasts in rough conditions where these machines are often
used. The platform enables the implementation of power- and energy-specific variants with nominal voltage from 48V up to 800V.
In hybrid applications, the ePRO500+ is used to cover peak power demands, meaning the combustion engine can be run at optimal efficiency, leading to lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. In full electric applications, ePRO500+ enables zero-emission operation. For the owner of the machine, battery technology reduces the total cost of ownership.
In the development, testing and manufacturing of batteries for off-road applications, Proventia uses its experience in the testing of electric vehicles and batteries, as well as its strong expertise in NRMM powertrains. The company has its own R&D and technology center with versatile battery simulation and virtual validation capabilities. In addition, Proventia has its own engine and battery testing center with four engine test cells and a high-voltage battery testing chamber capable of testing hybrid systems.
