Aiab Energy, a Swedish backup power solutions company, is diversifying its portfolio to expand into the field of battery energy storage systems (BESS). As a result, Aiab Energy has chosen Volvo Penta, Volvo’s marine and industrial engine manufacturing arm, to provide an optimized BESS subsystem for the company’s future BESS solutions.

“By investing in BES 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. “Being part of the Volvo Group, Volvo Penta has access to a robust supply chain and excellent aftermarket support, which is essential in our commitment to our clients.”

Under the partnership, Volvo Penta will supply Aiab Energy with its high-performance BESS subsystem, comprised of energy-dense battery systems with optimized C-rates made for industrial use – enabling rapid charging and discharging.

Volvo’s battery systems are designed for use in heavy-duty applications, such as electrified trucks, buses, and construction equipment. The subsystem will help secure dependable and responsible power supplies, aligning with the uptime and reliability demands of Aiab Energy’s customers – including hospitals, government entities, municipalities, and defense organizations.
