OGO Energy partners Singapore’s noco-noco on battery separator technology


OGO Energy has partnered with Singapore-based battery technology innovator noco-noco to produce batteries equipped with noco-noco’s X-SEPA separators. The two companies have signed a long-term Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on the collaboration.

“The collaboration combines noco-noco’s long-lasting and high-performance battery technology with OGO Energy’s indigenous battery management system (BMS) manufacturing expertise, with the aim to revolutionize energy solutions for sectors under increasing pressure to decarbonize such as maritime, data centers, telecommunications, and mobility,” stated noco-noco.

OGO Energy has a 100 MWh battery assembling plant in India. It will manufacture battery packs incorporating its proprietary BMS and battery cells with improved longevity and heat resistance made possible by noco-noco’s X-SEPA separators.

noco-noco claims batteries equipped with X-SEPA and high temperature-resistant electrolyte demonstrated substantially higher capacity retention than batteries using standard components after 2,000 cycles, in a charge-discharge cycle life testing conducted by the company at 60°C. This extended battery lifespan, approximately five times longer when set at 80% capacity retention, meets the needs of common electric vehicle (EV) applications and opens numerous second-life possibilities.

OGO Energy will build on its global network of cell manufacturers, to design packs catering to specific market demands and providing increased flexibility compared to traditional standardized packs. OGO Energy and noco-noco will jointly market the battery packs to customers including stationary energy storage and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). noco-noco will also offer lease financing options for battery packs installed by OGO Energy.

“The resultant solutions will help drive a market- and environmentally-friendly circular economy, with a future potential of incorporating carbon credits generated by noco-noco, IoT and smart energy optimizations down the line,” stated noco-noco.
