That research projects were organized by the U.S. Department of Energy (United States Department of Energy (DoE), Argonne National Laboratory, USA, for the development of new batteries for electric drive vehicles.

Main objective of that projects is to develop and manufacture a number of experimental and new lines of experimental equipment for the development of technologies and materials for manufacturing of batteries for electric drive vehicles.

Final Technical Meeting  on International R&D Project P483 “New Materials for Electric Drive Vehicles”, August 7th, 2013

Meeting of Ukrainian participants of the project P483 "New materials for electric drive vehicles" and U.S. partners was held  in the MRC office and work premises on August 7th 2013. It was attended by P483 project technical monitor Dave Carter and Andrew Castiglioni (Argonne National Laboratory, USA), American partner Igor Barsukov (American Energy Technologies Company, USA), P483 project manager S.Saenko (KIPT), O. Gogotsi (Materials Research Centre), M.Gubinskyi (NMetAU), and STCU representatives- STCU’s Deputy Executive Director (USA) Vic Korsun, I.Tomashevskaya (STCU).

The participants have summed up the project P483 on manufacturing experimental equipment for pilot  technological line. Also packaging and transportation and subsequent mounting in the United States have been discussed. Complex of experimental equipment designed, manufactured and assembled by MARC due to the project, was demonstrated to American party. Shown equipment is completely ready for shipment to the customer.
