Skeleton Technologies ultracapacitors for intralogistics applications

FAST CHARGING
FOR SHUTTLES

Ultracapacitor powered maintenance free system with charging points along the route

Benefits of our solution

  • Maintenance free – 24 /7 /365 system
  • Smaller energy storage package
  • Less integration effort
  • No significant downtime costs
  • Longer lifetime and lower OPEX 

Challenge

Costly downtime & space limitation

  • Key Challenges
  • Weight is key factor due to heights
  • Limited space for onboard energy storage in smaller shuttles
  • Offline time needed to recharge shuttle batteries
  • Charging time is 2 - 8 hours
  • Battery swapping may need to be implemented
  • Dedicated space, time & design for recharging is needed
  • Limited number of cycles – about 2000 -3000 on average
  • KNOWN CONSEQUENCES
  • Higher OPEX (shuttle down-time for recharging)
    Higher CAPEX (battery swapping)
    Frequent maintenance & battery replacements
    Oversized battery packs to meet power requirements during operation
