Electrosource Inc., San Marcos, Texas, has received an order for its
new light-weight intelligent battery the E-Power.
This initial order for 6,000 batteries from Frazer-Nash Research Ltd.
is for a fleet of electric vehicles to be supplied by Frazer-Nash to
the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. The batteries are to be delivered in
the first four months of 2000. Frazer-Nash is controlled by Kamkorp
Ltd., a U.K. holding company and the company's majority shareholder.
The E-Power(tm) battery uses patented manufacturing technology for
light-weight and low internal resistance. The battery ordered by
Frazer-Nash weighs just 18 pounds (8.2 Kg) and delivers 27Ah capacity
at C5 rate. This is 25% lighter than competitive products.
Electrosource CEO Benny Jay said, "We are extremely pleased to receive
this important order for the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. Frazer-Nash
has selected our E-Power(tm) battery because of its low weight and
rapid charge capability. The vehicles need only one hour to charge and
can therefore operate 22 hours a day."
Gordon Dixon, Frazer-Nash regional director in Australia, said,
"E-Power(tm) is a logical choice for the best Electric Vehicle
performance. The intelligence in the battery increases the overall
vehicle system reliability and ensures trouble-free operation."
Frazer-Nash is the exclusive supplier of electric vehicles to the
Olympic Games in Sydney in September 2000.
