April 21, 2022: Stryten Energy has formed two new divisions focused on developing and producing multiple battery technologies, including lead, for the energy storage market, the company said on March 9.
The formation of the Motive Power and Essential Power units followed the company’s announcement on January 19 that it was adding vanadium redox flow battery (VRFB) technology to its lead and lithium battery storage portfolio, after its acquisition of Storion Energy.
As part of the new moves, Stryten is rebranding its GNB Industrial Power division to Stryten Energy by the end of 2022 — “to unify go-to-market efforts under the Stryten Energy brand” directly and through its dealer network and service partners.
Stryten CEO Tim Vargo said the new divisions would enable the company to “focus on developing and manufacturing the high-performing, top-quality energy storage solutions across multiple chemistries that are required to meet the growing demand for clean power and the decarbonization goals in the US.
“Whether it is switching from internal combustion to battery-powered electric forklifts in their distribution centers or providing environmentally friendly energy storage for on-demand power needs, Stryten Energy and its vendor partners stand ready to support our customers’ sustainability goals now and into the future.”
The Motive Power division includes advanced lead and lithium batteries, intelligent chargers and energy performance management software solutions for material handling, mining and railway applications. Its team includes stored energy experts whose work includes power studies, training and inspections.
Essential Power includes advanced lead, lithium and vanadium battery technologies and services, including chargers and racking systems used for backup power for the military and government, telecommunications, UPS systems, railway, utility, microgrids and long-duration energy storage for renewable power sources.
Stryten said the Essential Power research and development team will identify, develop and commercialize innovative technologies such as lithium and flow batteries that will support the emerging sustainable power and distribution markets.
