IKERLAN is a non-profit technological research centre located in Arrasate-Mondragon (Basque Country, Spain). It has a staff of more than 240 qualified researchers and engineers, with specific strengths in microsystems, electronics, mechanical engineering, power electronics and energy technology. Its research areas are divided in three areas of expertise: (i) Electronics, information and communication technologies; (ii) Energy and Power electronics; and (iii) Advanced manufacturing. From its creation in 1974, IKERLAN has maintained close relations with the industry from the machinery and capital goods, domestic appliance, electronics and computing, automotive and energy sectors. It works closely with companies to develop innovative products and new tools and methodologies for implementation in design and production processes. IKERLAN will mainly evaluate the application viability and the scalability of the technology developed in the SAFELiMOVE project building a battery module. During this work IKERLAN will make use of its experience on battery system design and integration for mobility applications. Safety functions and control algorithms specific to this kind of cells will be also developed and implemented to the module.

“Energy storage and management are key to achieve an increase in efficiency and a performance improvement in transport systems, electric power generation and industrial processes. In IKERLAN we work in the integral design of cutting-edge storage systems (commercial cells selection, BMS, electromechanical integration, cooling, etc.), including the integration and management of electric and thermal power in vehicles, electrical grids or renewable energies, and industrial processes. SAFELiMOVE will be an exceptional team to walk towards the desired disruptive new batteries with higher energy density and improved safety in a cost-effective manner. IKERLAN will incorporate its expertise in different tasks, specially in the uspcaling from cell to module”
