Volvo Penta and Aiab Energy to expand collaboration into BESS solutions

Volvo Penta and Swedish backup power solutions company Aiab Energy are strengthening their collaboration to provide an integrated battery energy storage solution (BESS) that meets the specific needs of Aiab Energy’s customers.


Volvo Penta will supply Aiab Energy with a high-performance BESS subsystem, consisting in part of energy-dense battery systems with optimized C-rates tailored for industrial use, enabling rapid charging and discharging. These battery systems, which originate from the Volvo Group’s electrification platform, are used in heavy-duty applications such as electrified trucks, buses and construction equipment.

The subsystem is aimed at securing a dependable and responsive power supply, aligning with the uptime and reliability demands of Aiab Energy’s customers.

Aiab Energy, a Swedish backup power solutions company with a robust Nordic supply chain, has been a Volvo Penta customer for nearly 40 years. This partnership centers on Volvo Penta’s commitment to deliver efficient and high-performance D8, D13 and D16 power generation engines, tailored to meet Aiab Energy’s needs. Aiab Energy primarily serves Swedish government entities, including hospitals and municipalities, as well as defense organizations and critical infrastructure. These sectors rely on Aiab Energy’s reliable standby and prime power solutions, where dependability is key.

BESS offers a sustainable and versatile means of storing energy from renewable sources such as solar or wind, enabling more efficient use of these resources and enhancing critical infrastructure.

Volvo Penta and Aiab Energy will showcase a BESS prototype equipped with Volvo Penta’s subsystem at Eliaden in Norway, from 28-30 May.
