State of The Art Lithium Ion Battery Storage for Coventry University

The Customer

In 2019, Coventry University collaborated with global engineering specialist FEV Group to develop a state-of-the-art low carbon technology centre. 

Named C-ALPS (Centre for Advanced Low-Carbon Propulsion Systems), the £50m centre enables leading international automotive and aerospace organisations to develop the next generation of electric, hybrid and internal combustion engines.

The Challenge

As part of their mission to build, test and further improve on future-proof powertrain concepts, Coventry University reached out to our specialist shipping container conversion team for a 20ft fire-resistant lithium battery store. 

This would need to come complete with ATEX Zone II interior electrical and HVAC installations, explosion venting and fire protected storage shelving.

The S Jones Lithium Battery Storage Solution

After working with Coventry University on the specification, we used our CAD expertise to generate an accurate visual representation of the shipping container that would ensure full functionality prior to build.

Building from this design, we then fabricated the battery store in our purpose built workshop before repainting it in our professional paint booth.

What Coventry University Had To Say

“It has been over 5 years since I worked with S Jones on the very first bespoke container for battery storage. Having the ability to store our new and used Lithium-ion batteries safely plays a key part in the operations of our research centre.

I am very pleased to see the design of the container has evolved over the years to include many new features to meet the latest safety requirements, making it the industry’s best practice for battery storage. Thank you so much for doing a great job!” – Professor Yue Guo, Chair of Battery Systems at Coventry University
