Corvus Energy Ltd. Partners with Surrette Battery Company to Sell Co-Branded Lithium-Polymer Battery

Corvus Energy's 6.5 kWh AT6500 Modules to be Sold Under Rolls Battery Brand

Surrette Battery Company announced today that it will sell Corvus Energy Ltd.'s lithium-polymer batteries under its Rolls Battery brand.


Since 1935, Surrette Battery Company has supplied premium lead-acid batteries to a variety of markets with heavy power needs, including super yachts, locomotives and major renewable energy applications such as village electrification. Surrette's partnership with Corvus Energy will provide Surrette with lithium-polymer batteries capable of handling diesel-scale energy requirements.

"A partnership with Corvus Energy, a world-class, industrial-quality, lithium-polymer battery manufacturer, is an exciting opportunity for Surrette Battery to broaden our product offering," said James Surrette, president and chief executive officer of Surrette Battery Company. "Corvus' large-format, lithium-polymer technology provides an alternative solution for our existing Renewable Energy and Diesel Electric Rail customers who seek a product for large-scale, scalable, high-power energy storage."

Corvus' energy storage modules are up to 10 times more powerful than lead-acid batteries and are more powerful than current alternative lithium-ion competitors. The batteries are built to handle the world's most hazardous ocean conditions. Fully waterproof to 1 atmosphere, the modules can operate from -20 to 60 degrees Celsius and are rated to withstand shock ratings of 30 G and 5 axis vibration ratings of 8 G.

"Our AT6500 modules are capable of storing energy from 6.5 kWh to megawatt scaled application and dispersing it on an as needed basis," said Brent Perry, chief executive officer for Corvus Energy. "Surrette is recognized as one of the world's highest quality battery companies and is the ideal partner for leveraging our brand penetration in the renewable energy market."
