saft groupe sa (SAFT) Key Developments

Saft Receives Contract from Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation

Saft has been awarded two exclusive multi-year, multi-million-dollar supply contracts by Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation. Under the agreement, Saft will deliver Ultra Low Maintenance (ULM(R)) technology batteries to Gulfstream Aerospace for two business jets, the Gulfstream G650(R) and Gulfstream G550(R). Deliveries for the contract, signed in late 2013, began in January. Saft will continue to supply its 5317CH-1, 21-cell CVH530KA ULM(R) battery. The 5317CH-1 battery has proven successful since the aircraft's certification in 1997. Since the technology was introduced in the Gulfstream GV(R), most new commercial and military aircraft have been developed and certified powered by Saft's ULM(R) batteries. Saft's 5317CH-1 ULM(R) technology battery reduces operating costs by significantly increasing the time between maintenance. The ULM(R) battery, backed by robust and reliable technology, will provide start APU, emergency power, power avionics, backup power for flight controls and has the ability to fill in electrical system loads as needed. The battery provides 25.2 V of power and has a capacity of 53Ah. The Saft 5317CH-1 batteries are also used in the Gulfstream GV-SP(R) and G500(R).

Saft Wins a Contract from DCNS for Electrochemical Stacks for PB-61 Powering F21 Torpedoes

Saft has been awarded a multi-million Euro torpedo electrochemical stacks contract by DCNS. Under this long-term contract, Saft will supply silver oxide-aluminium (AgO-Al) electrochemical stacks for PB-61 powering heavyweight F21 torpedoes. Saft will supply silver oxide-aluminium (AgO-Al) electrochemical stacks for PB-61 powering heavyweight F21 torpedoes. DCNS has designed the F21 to be the most advanced torpedo on the world market, and the high energy density AgO-Al seawater activated primary electrochemical stack supplied by Saft delivers the high power essential to achieve a high maximum speed over an extended range. The F21 has a range greater than 50 km and a top speed in excess of 90 km/h. The AgO-Al electrochemical stacks deliver the high power essential to achieve a high maximum speed over an extended range and propel the 1.6 ton, 6 m long and 0.53 m diameter torpedo at different depths without any degradation. The electrochemical stack also powers the onboard electronic control and guidance. AgO-Al battery technology is unique to Saft and was developed with DCNS specifically to propel heavyweight and lightweight torpedoes. It delivers twice as much energy and power as conventional silver-zinc batteries for the same mass and volume.

Saft Wins $17.5 Million Contract for the Supply of Multiple Batteries for Military Aircraft

Saft, has been awarded a multi-million dollar contract from Defense Logistics Agency Land and Maritime (DLA). Under the contract, totaling $17.5 million, Saft will provide nickel-based batteries and cells for military aircraft applications to be used by the United States military. The DLA is America's combat and logistics support agency, providing the Air Force, Army, Marine Corps, Navy, federal agencies and combined allied forces with the full spectrum of logistics, acquisition and technical services. With this agreement, Saft will provide a single interface for the supply of batteries for military aircraft supporting DLA's customer, the front line troops. Saft will supply Ultra Low Maintenance Battery (ULM(R)) to support both fixed-wing and rotor-wing aircrafts. The nickel-based batteries provide a nominal voltage of 24 volts. The batteries are comprised of leak-proof thermo-welded cells, seam-welded plate tabs and copper cell links and terminals. They are also constructed using superior separator material and a flooded membrane design. The three-year contract was signed in late March and includes two, one-year options periods that may be exercised by the U.S. Government, increasing the contract period to five years. Deliveries are set to begin this year.
