SYSTEMS SUNLIGHT S.A.: Panos Germanos’ export-oriented company seals 1 mln Euro deal with Delhaize Serbia

SYSTEMS SUNLIGHT S.A. owned by Panos Germanos and having strategically selected a clear export orientation, initiated a co-operation with Delhaize Serbia, a leading food retailer. The new project, with a budget of more than 1 mln Euro, refers to an integrated solution for motive power batteries used by forklifts in Delhaize’s Logistics Centre in Serbia. Under the new deal SUNLIGHT has undertaken to design and install fully equipped charging rooms, to supply motive power batteries and to provide advanced battery handling systems. More specifically, SYSTEMS SUNLIGHT will supply Delhaize Serbia with 550 PzS type motive power batteries, equipped with battery monitoring systems (BMS), 240 High Frequency chargers, as well as with technologically advanced aqua-filling and air-lift systems. SUNLIGHT’s Head of Sales Motive Power Batteries, Mr. Labros Bisalas, commented on the deal: “We are particularly proud of this agreement because it demonstrates that SUNLIGHT has won the confidence of international markets. This cooperation represents a strategic deal of great significance to us, as it is a concrete evidence of the credibility and export profile of SYSTEMS SUNLIGHT and is fully aligned with our overall positioning in providing integrated solutions in the energy storage sector worldwide”. In the framework of this particular project, SUNLIGHT utilized its strategic partnership with Philadelphia Scientific, which has a robust expertise in peripheral motive power battery systems on a global level. It should be noted that the first, and largest, phase of the project has already been implemented, while the remaining phases will be delivered gradually over the next two years. SUNLIGHT’s motive power batteries are designed by the company’s R&D Department and produced exclusively at... read more
Electrolyte Circulation System (Airlift System) for Motive Power Batteries

Electrolyte Circulation System (Airlift System) for Motive Power Batteries

Electrolyte Circulation System (Airlift System) The Airlift System is used in order to stir the electrolyte inside the battery cells and prevent the occurrence of electrolyte stratification. The system consists of a thin tube that is inserted to each battery cell and a tubing network that distributes the air to all cells, thus creating a homogeneous electrolyte concentration throughout them.   Key Features of SUNLIGHT’s Airlift System Optimum design High quality materials Suitable installation of tubes in cells for perfect sealing and efficient operation   Why using an Airlift System? The battery can be fully charged in 5,5 to 7 hours, depending on charging technology No significant increase of the cell’s temperature The stratification of the electrolyte is prevented Homogeneous density and temperature is achieved The water consumption is reduced up to 60%, which extends battery’s maintenance period Overcharge coefficient is 70% lower, thus energy consumption is reduced up to 20% Longer cell life cycle is achieved due to the uniform decay of the... read more

Lead Acid Batteries Recycling

Lead Acid Batteries Recycling

Why recycling? Lead is one of the most sustainable raw materials on the planet. Recycling is more energy-efficient than mining and smelting new lead. The lead from a dead battery can be refined into new alloy over and over again making much better use of existing resources. Its sustainability is unmatched and serves as a buffer to raw material price fluctuations that could compromise the practicality of commercial use. The supply of lead is not dependent on one dominating international source, unlike material used in some other forms of energy power storage.   Recycling Process The process begins with the used battery being broken apart with a machine that hammers the it into many pieces. The pieces are placed into a vat, where lighter plastic floats and all other materials sink to the bottom. The pieces are separated into three parts, the plastic, lead, and battery acid. The polypropylene plastic bits are washed and dried, then sent to a plant to be melted and formed into pellets, which are sold to battery manufacturers for use in new batteries. The lead parts are heated in a furnace until molten. Impurities in the lead float to the top and are removed. The remaining lead is sent to manufacturers for use in new batteries. Old battery acids are treated with a base solution that neutralizes them and turns the acid into water that is tested for safety, then reused. A small portion of the acid is processed into sodium sulfate, used in many manufacturing processes, in glass and in laundry soaps.   For additional information regarding Lead Acid Battery Recycling click... read more
