Eurosatory: Saft battery supply

17th June 2016 - 09:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Saft will supply specialised military batteries to Team Leidos under a two year contract announced on 13 June.

Under the contract Saft will supply around 60 different types of primary and rechargeable batteries to provide reliable, lightweight and long-duration power for equipment used by the British armed forces, including radios and helicopters. 

Team Leidos is the UK Ministry of Defence’s (MoD's) delivery partner under a 13-year contract. It supports the MoD’s Logistic Commodities and Services Transformation (LCST) programme, as part of work to enhance and improve the UK’s defence supply chain. Team Leidos provides essential services such as the storage and distribution of MoD material, a global freight service, and the procurement and inventory management of food, fuels, clothing, medical material and general supplies. 

Saft batteries have long life, high energy density and low self-discharge rates.

Ben Helminen, sales and marketing director, Saft civil electronics division, said: ‘Saft is pleased to cement its long-standing relationship with the UK MoD through this new partnership with Team Leidos.

‘Our batteries offer the proven performance and reliability track-record the UK armed forces need to operate safely on land, air and sea. Our specialist primary and rechargeable batteries are designed to withstand the demanding mechanical and electrical conditions encountered both in combat and in training exercises.’
