SHANGHAI, Mar 17 (SMM)—Domestic lead market witnessed a gradual growth of production capacity in recent years. SMM has integrated the customer groups on lead industry chain, including upstream companies, including smelters, battery materials and auxiliary materials, and third-party equipment in an effort to match resource among the whole industry chain, lower lead-acid battery companies’ production costs and explore the way of developing the battery industry.
As such, SMM lead research has conducted an on-the-spot survey on lead-acid battery plants, providing face-to-face communication opportunities for long-term orders procurement and creating precise and in-depth cooperation.
From March 15 to 19, SMM lead team will visit Haibao Battery Technology, Shuangdeng Group, Haiyi New Energy Yangzhou, Tongke Battery, Huafu Energy Storage New Technology, Oliter Energy Technology, Ailisheng Battery, Leoch Battery, Yongda Power, Xupai Power, and conduct onsite survey on the production situation of China's lead industry raw material enterprises with industry players, so as to seek more precise and in-depth cooperation, and create more effective and sustainable exchanges. Below please find the field report on Jiangsu Huafu Energy Storage New Technology Co., Ltd.
Jiangsu Huafu Energy Storage New Technology Co., Ltd. specialises in the R&D, production, sales, and service of energy storage materials application. It is a national high-tech enterprise. The company is headquartered in Gaoyou, Jiangsu, and the business involves new energy, solar modules, storage batteries, logistics, trade, and scientific research and development. The company now has one China famous brand, two national inspection-free products, three Jiangsu famous brand products, and 28 Jiangsu high-tech products. It has led or participated in drafting and formulating more than 20 national (industry) standards, and has established many national and provincial workstations. It has also been awarded with various provincial modular titles.
In recent years, the company has built long-term industry-university-research cooperation with Cambridge University, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Harbin Institute of Technology, Southeast University, Yangzhou University, Zhejiang University and other scientific research institutions, and has developed nano colloidal batteries, polymer solar energy storage batteries, new-type cadmium-free motive batteries for electric vehicles, and other high-tech products. The company has undertaken a number of national (provincial) scientific and technological projects, and has more than 100 core technology patents, which has enhanced the stamina for the enterprise development and transformation. The new cadmium-free power battery for electric vehicles is a key implementation project, and the solar energy storage battery is an independent innovation product at the international leading level, which has filled the domestic gap.
Huafu always adheres to the high quality, environmental protection, and high efficiency of the products. Its production has successfully passed the ISO9001 quality management system, ISO14001 environmental management system, OHSA18001 occupational health and safety management system certification, the United States UL and the European Union CE certification, the Golden Sun certification, and the TLC in telecommunications, electric power, radio and television, railway, finance and other industries. The company adheres to humanistic spirit, credible and innovative development, diversified but professional management, and shared honour with employees and all sectors of the society, so as to create a better future for the enterprise.
The company's main business: new energy storage materials and the application products; energy storage systems and the application engineering; clean energy systems and the application engineering; energy storage batteries; lithium batteries; new batteries and their materials; valve-regulated fully sealed batteries; R&D, manufacturing, and sales of electrode plates, motive batteries and their power management systems; design, production, integration, installation, sales, and maintenance of solar photovoltaic system products and solar photovoltaic independent and grid-connected power stations (excluding power transmission, power supply, and power receiving Installation and maintenance of power facilities).
The main products include energy storage lead-acid battery, gel batteries (especially batteries for plateaus), electric vehicle batteries, lithium batteries, and so on. Huafu has an annual battery production capacity of 2 million KVAh. Since 2016, it has been providing China Tower and China Unicom with various lead-acid batteries, LFP battery packs for power backup, LFP battery packs for power replacement, and data centre backup. It has also undertaken many key photovoltaic projects at home and abroad, providing batteries for the Inner Mongolia Electric Power Group’s new energy power supply project, Golden Sun Demonstration Project, Qinghai photovoltaic power station projects, Shanxi street lightening project, Xinjiang photovoltaic system projects, Tibet local area network project in Nyima, and State Grid household photovoltaic and micro-grid power station maintenance in Tibet.
Huafu's manufacturing base is located in Gaoyou Battery Industrial Park, Gaoyou Economic Development Zone, covering an area of nearly 200 acres, with nearly 200 sets of advanced production equipment, including 87 sets of imported equipment and 94 domestic equipment. There are nearly 20 sets of R&D equipment with independent intellectual property rights. Huafu also took the lead to establish a 24-hour customer service centre to strengthen communication with customers and provide pre-sales, in-sales, and after-sales services.
The free hotline: 400-8899855, 800-8285205
In the visit, the delegation learned more about the equipment of motive battery production.
The lead-acid batteries produced by Huafu have independent intellectual property rights. Leading technologies are applied to the production of the core components of grids, plates, and battery shells and connection. The high technical strength and industry-university-research cooperation has been recognised at excellent by Jiangsu government.
Process is mainly improved in the production efficiency, battery performance, and battery life. The production efficiency is enhanced with higher degree of mechanisation, and the battery life can be expanded through the 4BS generated from the strengthened grid and active materials.
New materials: The core project of technological innovation lies in the research and development of electrolytes. Up to now, there is no original and auxiliary materials exclusively used for development of lead-acid battery electrolytes in China, but phased progress has been made after countless experiments.
New formula: The company has been mainly producing floating batteries. With the development of emerging markets, the content of the paste acid is adjusted to generate 4BS paste, and the battery circulation will be improved.
High-tin and low-calcium alloy: Element content in the alloys are increased to further delay the corrosion and the generation of barrier layer between the alloy and the active material, thereby prolonging the service life.
Application of high-quality, high-efficiency and environmental protection tooling: Through market research and demonstration, the company selects high-quality, high-efficiency and environmentally friendly lead powder machines, plate casting machines, paste machines, plate coating machines, glue filling machines, and intelligent charging and discharging forming cabinets.
SMM specially set up the licensing part of the inspection unit to add a sense of ritual of harmonious development and pleasant exchanges between the inspection team and the company.
This visit helps to deepen the analysts' understanding of the company ‘s products, technology, and development status. Meanwhile, it helps to develop the understanding of market and the development trends, as well as problems faced by the lead industry.
