The Netherlands-based Eleo is on a mission to speed up the transition to a fossil-free future. How? Properly, by offering high-tech batteries to the machines and automobiles most tough to affect.
These primarily embody industrial, off-highway machines within the building, agricultural, and forestry sectors — but additionally cowl electrical mobility, starting from cargo and last-mile supply automobiles to vessels.
Eleo began out as a pupil workforce on the Eindhoven College of Know-how, and was based in 2017. Since then it’s been designing and manufacturing in-house battery programs that increase a excessive degree of efficiency and suppleness.

Particularly, the startup provides modular batteries which are scalable in measurement, voltage, and capability, to be able to meet custom-specific necessities. Customers may be certain that the battery packs are reaching optimum efficiency by Eleo’s proprietary battery administration system (BMS), which supplies estimations on the state-of-charge (SOC), state-of-health (SOH), and state-of-power (SOP).
One other product benefit the corporate provides is its “plug & play” nature, that means that the batteries are delivered totally licensed, examined, and prepared for direct set up.
Now the startup is planning to extend its manufacturing capability tenfold with its new plant on the Automotive Campus in Helmond — which was inaugurated last Thursday by King Willem-Alexander.
The brand new 3,000m² constructing shall be answerable for the fully-automated meeting of battery modules. It’ll additionally incorporate a analysis heart and growth labs to advance present battery expertise.
Total, the plant will improve annual manufacturing capability tenfold, reaching roughly 10,000 battery packs — which may collectively retailer round 500MWh of energy. Eleo additionally expects to develop its personnel from 60 to 200 workers over the course of two years.
“The development towards zero-emission is already in full swing within the automotive trade,” Bas Verkaik, co-founder of Eleo mentioned in a statement. “Electrical automobiles are already fairly well-known, however that’s not but the case for building equipment operating on electrical energy. In building, electrification will not be too far alongside but. With our batteries, we wish to provoke and facilitate this growth.”
