Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) Battery Revitalizing Technology in Sri Lanka
Edirisinghe Brothers (Pvt) Ltd., (EBL) announced the opening of Hybrid Hub; a purpose-built facility for the testing, conditioning and rebuilding of batteries for Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV) – the only such facility in Sri Lanka.
EBL sought to address those vital areas by securing World-Class hybrid diagnostic technology, training and support from Automotive Research and Design (AR&D), U.S.A., via their Master Franchisor for Asia Pacific – Growth Dynamics (Singapore). In addition, Optima Werkz (Singapore) will provide automotive technical support to Hybrid Hub. The proprietary technology at the heart of Hybrid Hub’s battery testing, conditioning and rebuilding was developed by Dr. Mark Quarto and his team at AR&D.
The proprietary AR&D tools and software allow Hybrid Hub technicians to safely remove the battery from a HEV, isolate the underperforming modules of the battery and, thereafter, revive.
Singapore-based Growth Dynamics has signed an exclusive agreement to provide continuous training and support in the areas of hybrid diagnostics to the technical staff at Hybrid Hub.
Optima Werkz, Singapore is the supporting partner for Hybrid Hub and will provide technical support in the areas of vehicle diagnostics and repairs with its experience as Singapore’s leading workshop for Continental, Japanese, Korean and Supercars.
Hybrid Hub’s current service capacity accommodates HEVs, but is expected to cater to EVs in the coming months.
