Trojan Battery is the world’s leading manufacturer of deep-cycle batteries and a battery technology pioneer, having built the first golf car battery in 1952. Trojan batteries provide power for a wide variety of applications that require deep-cycle battery performance, including aerial work platform, floor cleaning equipment, golf and utility vehicles, marine/RV, material handling, oil/gas, remote telecom and renewable energy. Founded in 1925, the company is ISO 9001:2008 certified with operations in California and Georgia. The company also maintains two of the largest and most extensive research and development centres in North America, and opened a third R&D facility in Sligo, Ireland at IT Sligo. These R&D centres are dedicated to engineering new and advanced battery technology. For more information on Trojan Battery Co., visit our website.
Trojan Opens R&D Center in Ireland
Trojan Battery Co., LLC, the world’s leading manufacturer of deep-cycle batteries, today announced expansion of its research and development (R&D) capabilities with the opening of a new R&D centre in Sligo, Ireland. Known as Trojan Battery Ireland Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Trojan Battery Co., LLC, the facility is located on the campus of the Institute of Technology, Sligo at its Innovation Centre. “The addition of Trojan Battery to our list of resident technology companies exemplifies the strategic focus of the IT Sligo – to provide an advanced setting for companies to further their innovative research and product development efforts,” said Niall McEvoy, Head of Innovation for the IT Sligo. “Trojan will have access to some of the world’s most advanced R&D capabilities available.”
Trojan Battery Ireland will focus on R&D of advanced material additives, fundamental electrochemistry and other innovative technologies which will play a role in the continued advancement of Trojan batteries. These developments will enhance Trojan’s battery offerings for its foundational and emerging market segments. In addition, the Advanced Materials Centre will enable Trojan to introduce ground-breaking advancements in deep-cycle battery technology more quickly.
As Trojan continues to rapidly expand its international business, the Sligo facility will be key to providing the technical resources and expertise to customers in the region, expand Trojan’s European original equipment manufacturer (OEM) business, as well as better support our existing European and African customers.
Designed to enhance life and performance of Trojan batteries operating in PSOC, Smart Carbon is a standard feature in Trojan Battery’s Industrial and Premium flooded battery lines, and are now available.
Partial State of Charge (PSOC) is where the batteries are not always being fully re-charged following a charge cycle – like renewable energy and off-grid applications especially.
Smart Carbon improves charge acceptance and provides for faster recharge in PSOC applications where the batteries are undercharged on a regular basis. Trojan chose to add Smart Carbon first to its deep-cycle flooded batteries since flooded technology is the most widely used in off-grid and unstable grid applications globally due to cycling performance, ability to withstand harsh conditions, widespread availability and economical price point. Trojan Battery is the first manufacturer to introduce a carbon additive as a standard feature in deep cycle flooded batteries used in RE, inverter-backup and remote telecom applications. Trojan’s engineering team spent more than five years in research and development experimenting with many types of carbon to ensure the right formula to successfully address PSOC. Trojan is committed to these market segments and will continue to be an innovative leader in the energy storage space.
Reliant AGM is designed for use in a variety of deep-cycle applications including aerial work platform, floor cleaning, golf, material handling, recreation, renewable energy, backup power and remote telecom. It is a true deep-cycling AGM battery unlike most AGM batteries on the market today, which are designed for dual-purpose or standby applications, such as UPS backup. Trojan has focused on deep-cycle technology longer than any other battery manufacturer in the industry and has utilized its extensive expertise and knowledge in developing the industry’s most reliable deep-cycle AGM battery.
