It was a day dedicated to technology and innovative thinking that saw Flash Battery’s two founding partners, Marco Righi and Alan Pastorelli, engaged in a training session for the students of the European Master’s in “Energy Storage” promoted by EIT – European Institute of Innovation and Technology.
The Master’s course, held in collaboration with the Politecnico di Torino, the Aalto University School of Engineering, School of Chemical Engineering (Helsinki, Finland) and the Instituto Superior Técnico (Lisbon, Portugal), is an international programme focusing on sustainable energy, storage and accumulation, which aims to provide students with skills and tools that will help them face the new job challenges posed by the energy sector, in a constantly evolving global context.
The students, who came from different countries around the world, were accompanied on this training day by Silvia Bodoardo, Professor at the Department of Applied Science and Technology (DISAT), Mariapia Martino, Doctor at the Department of Energy (DENERG), and Michele Pastorelli, Professor at the Department of Energy (DENERG) of the Politecnico di Torino.
The company visit, aimed at gaining a better understanding of the industrial electrification sector and learning more about the different industry segments that benefit from the energy transition, was an opportunity for the young engineers to get to the heart of Flash Battery technology.
The company’s CEO and CTO dwelt on the main elements that make up the structure of Flash Battery lithium batteries, delving into the more technical aspects related to the functioning of the various proprietary electronic components, such as the Flash Data Center and the Flash Balancing System, which guarantee the high performance required by the most varied industrial applications, providing concrete examples and getting to the heart of mechanical and electronic customisation, one of the distinguishing aspects of our batteries.
The lecture then ended with a tour of the factory, which allowed the students to get to the heart of production and to understand how an entrepreneurial reality such as Flash Battery operates. With over 10 years of experience in the design and production of customised lithium batteries for industrial machines and vehicles, Flash Battery makes its skills available to respond to the evolution of the constantly growing electrification market.
