Both partners plan to collaborate on automated disassembly of battery packs and modules, modeling of the cell and part of the production process through a digital twin project, and accelerated cell ageing tests.
This partnership comes at the same time as the announcement of two other Blue Solutions collaboration contracts with the Bern University of Applied Sciences (BFH) and the CSEM (Centre suisse d'électronique et de microtechnique) in Neuchâtel.
