GS Yuasa has been a pioneer in the creation of commercial lithium ion batteries, including the development of a large-format prismatic lithium ion battery in 1993. Our competitiveness is built on the knowledge, technology and expertise gained from decades of research and development, and substantial market experience.
Using large format lithium ion cells manufactured by GS Yuasa at our state–of-the-art, mass production battery plants, GYLP uses its system knowledge and experience to design, build and deliver highly engineered, reliable solutions to its North American customers. GS Yuasa’s extensive research and development, and decades of application knowledge and experience supports GYLP’s engineering and product development efforts.
Our lithium ion cells have been successfully deployed in satellites and vehicles used to resupply the International Space Station as well as, rockets, commercial aircraft, electric and hybrid electric vehicles, hybrid cranes, railroad rolling stock, stationary energy storage systems, automated guided vehicles, and manned and unmanned undersea research vessels.
Several of our lithium ion cells have been qualified for space travel, including a man-rated battery system that has passed the NASA qualification standards for Crewed Space Vehicle Operation.
Our expertise enables us to deliver highly reliable, high value solutions enabling our customers to meet their project schedules and business objectives. Our areas of functional expertise include, but are not limited to:
- Battery design and assembly
- Cell and battery testing and qualification
- Modeling and simulation
- Program management
