Last week, the second part of the SUVEREN fire test series regarding NEC was finished. With this, an important milestone was accomplished.
Overall, six tests with traction batteries, with and without firefighting, two tests with a wooden design fire load, and four test with a CNG gas flame, also with and without firefighting, were conducted. The test series has proceeded to the consortium’s full satisfaction. Within the testing environment, the thermal runaway of the tested lithium ion batteries could be suppressed by high-pressure water mist. Next weeks will now focus on the evaluation of the gathered test results.
