Leadec now responsible for the repair of high-voltage batteries of electric vans at its Hoyerswerda site

(PRESS RELEASE) HOYERSWERDA, Germany, 12-Jan-2023 — /EuropaWire/ — Leadec, a Stuttgart based leader in technical services for the automotive and manufacturing industries, has announced that it is now offering battery repair services for electric vans. The company has been responsible for the repair of high-voltage batteries of electric vans at its Hoyerswerda site since September 2022. The expansion of their services to battery repair is aimed at making a significant contribution to sustainability and resource conservation. The defective batteries of an automobile manufacturer are delivered to Leadec in Hoyerswerda and repaired within a narrow time frame.

Working under high voltage

First, the specialists at the plant analyze the non-functioning batteries, read the error codes and prepare a repair plan. “The error patterns are very diverse,” explains Gunnar Grohmann, Site Manager in Hoyerswerda, “from defective battery management systems to the failure of electrical components such as current sensors to damaged modules, seals and insulation or housings.” Individual parts are replaced as needed. For example, if a failure of individual cells is diagnosed, it is often sufficient to replace the affected module.

A particular challenge when repairing batteries is the high voltage. For this reason, Leadec employs specially trained specialists for batteries, electrical work and working under electrical voltage. “Here, we rely on redundant protection consisting of protective clothing, insulated tools and very clear specifications regarding the individual work steps,” affirms Gunnar Grohmann. The successful repair is followed by end-of-line testing before the battery is returned to the manufacturer and awaits its next use.

“Electromobility has to be thought of in a bigger dimension if it is to be truly sustainable,” says Alexander Bonk. “For this reason, the reusability of lithium-ion batteries plays a central role for manufacturers. We are pleased that Leadec is the right partner here and that we can support manufacturers on their way to greater sustainability with our expertise in the battery segment.”
