Assembling

Cells are packaged in cartridges and Water Jackets are placed in between each cell for thermal control, which helps maintain optimal performance of the cells throughout their life cycles. The Water Jackets are made of thin aluminum sheets which enhance the heat dissipation capability of the module. Depending on the customers technical requirements the KOL module can be configured to increase or decrease its capacity and/or voltage.

COMPLETE MODULE

KOL Module, BPU and Fuse box

The KOL Module is enclosed in an IP56 grade enclosure and is supplied with a Battery Protection Unit and Fuse Box.

ADVANTAGES

GENUINE SCALABILITY : KOL Module particularities
The KOL Battery Solution is comprised of multiple KOL Battery Modules configured to accommodate voltage and energy or current (Wh/Ah) capacity requirements. Due to its flexibility and compact size, the KOL Battery Solution can be installed in places with limited space.
CERTIFICATION
Kokams KOL Battery Solution conforms to IEC standard and classification society rules and its safety and performance have been tested and verified by 3rd party test facilities.
LIQUID COOLING CAPABILITY
Cells are packaged in cartridges and Water Jackets are placed between each cell for thermal control which helps maintain optimal performance of the cells throughout their life cycles. The Water Jackets are made of thin aluminum sheets which enhance the heat dissipation capability of the module. Depending on the customers technical requirements the KOL module can be customized to increase or decrease its energy or current (Wh/Ah) capacity and/or voltage.
HIGHLY SCALABLE : From 10kWh to MWh Scale
Kokam’s batteries enhance the performance of electric boats. With a focus on high energy density, Kokam provides battery solutions which are significantly smaller in size and weigh less than competing products. These features support for long distance navigation and travel, for example, the battery system in a submarine is required to function as a reliable source of energy for long term missions. In addition, Kokam batteries’ superior power output is optimal as an engine starter power source.
