DALIAN, China, Dec. 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- CBAK Energy Technology, Inc. ("CBAK Energy", or the "Company", NASDAQ: CBAT), a leading lithium-ion battery manufacturer and electric energy solution provider, announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Dalian CBAK Energy Technology Co., LTD ("Dalian CBAK") signed a joint development agreement with Wuxi Lead Intelligent Equipment Co., Ltd.("LEAD"). The two parties plan to jointly design and develop the automatic production line for manufacturing tab-less power lithium batteries with high efficiency, high stability and high intelligence. The main models of products that are expected to be manufactured on this line are 4680, 46105, 32140, 34154, 34184 and 34200.
According to the agreement, CBAK energy will prioritize LEAD's automatic production line to manufacture the above new power lithium-ion batteries. The production line would support CBAK's 6 GWh capacity factory in Nanjing, which produces power lithium-ion batteries with high-performance, high-safety and high energy density. After all production lines reach the production capacity, we expect that the output value of RMB 4 billion (approximately $600 million) will be achieved.
According to the news released by the Company in September, CBAK Energy has already successfully developed the large-sized tab-less battery: model 32140, and achieved the capability of massive production. The agreement with LEAD indicates that CBAK Energy is actively deploying a standard production line for this model. Large-sized 32140 battery is an important model developed by CBAK Energy in recent years. Compared to previous model 26650, the capacity of model 32140 has increased by 5 times, energy density has grown by 25%, cost per kilowatt hour has dropped by 20%. Under model 32140, we intend to release ternary, lithium iron phosphate and lithium manganate system products at the same time to fulfill the need of different market segments.
The cooperation of the two parties is based on CBAK Energy's years of experience in lithium-ion battery technology development, combined with the LEAD's advantage in high-tech power lithium-ion battery manufacturing equipment design and development. The cooperation of the two parties will promote the market-based application of large-sized lithium-ion battery products and provide safer and more consistent electricity power products.
