The consortium is formed of the MTC, Electrovaya, the CRR, Unipart Manufacturing, RDVS, Bluebird Innovation Group, Loughborough University and Cenex and part funded by the Technology Strategy Board. The project is now under way and many of the work packages have commenced. We are pleased to announce that a crucial step of the project has now been completed, the teardown of Electrovayas Maya. Both battery packs, the battery management all other power components were successfully removed from the vehicle. One of the battery backs was then dismantled to component level. This exercise will assist the consortium in further understanding where weight savings can be made and manufacturing techniques need to be altered.
