Volvo Penta and Swedish backup power solutions company Aiab Energy are strengthening their collaboration to provide an integrated battery energy storage solution that meets the specific needs of Aiab Energy’s customers, while contributing to a more sustainable and resilient energy infrastructure.

Volvo Penta will supply Aiab Energy with a high-performance BESS subsystem, comprised in part of energy-dense battery systems with optimized C-rates tailored for industrial use, enabling rapid charging and discharging. These battery systems, which originate from the Volvo Group’s electrification platform, are used in heavy-duty applications such as electrified trucks, buses and construction equipment. The subsystem is aimed at securing a dependable and responsive power supply, aligning perfectly with the uptime and reliability demands of Aiab Energy’s customers.

Aiab Energy has been a Volvo Penta customer for nearly 40 years. This partnership centers on Volvo Penta's commitment to deliver D8, D13 and D16 power generation engines, tailored to meet Aiab Energy’s needs. Aiab Energy primarily serves Swedish government entities, including hospitals and municipalities, as well as defense organizations and critical infrastructure. These sectors rely on Aiab Energy’s standby and prime power solutions, where dependability is key.

According to the companies, BESS will play an increasingly pivotal role in modern society, offering sustainable and versatile means of storing energy from renewable sources such as solar or wind, enabling more efficient use of these resources and enhancing critical infrastructure. “By investing in BESS technology, Aiab Energy is not only advancing its capabilities but will also contribute to a cleaner, more resilient energy future,” said Jakob Sandwall, CEO of Aiab Energy.
