ELECTRIC VEHICLES AND LITHIUM ION BATTERIES
The demand for Lithium Ion Battery (LIB) powered electric vehicles (EV’s) is increasing around the globe. Consequently, their involvement in traffic accidents and fire incidents will rise according to demand.
The risks associated with conventional vehicles are well defined and generally acceptable by society; however, time and education are needed to achieve this comfort level for LIB powered EVs.
Any damage the lithium ion battery may suffer or deemed to possibly have suffered can subsequently pose a threat to occupants and responders as well as those involved in post-crash operations.
At Kensington we have designed Quarantine Units so that Electric Vehicles can be safely stored should they either be recovered from a road traffic collision (RTC) or quarantined due to potential damage to the battery that’s not necessarily obvious on initial inspection.
with all our work we pride ourselves on being innovative and quality driven whilst considering the client budget constraints.
With this in mind, we often design a blended approach of custom exhibition stands with modular build for our client, which once dismantled can be stored and reused later.
Fixed and Mobile Solutions
Our quarantine units can be situated in a fixed position at a Service Centre, Car Dealership, Garage, Fuel Station or even a Domestic Residence.
Alternatively, they can be mobile units travelling on a hook loader truck that will attend the scene and be part of the response to safely collect the vehicle.
Once the vehicle is stored safely it is monitored for up to seven days, as recommended best practice by certain manufacturers. Should the battery ignite then the battery is flooded to suppress the fire and reduce the temperature of the cells.
