Batteries for Airbus transport aircraft

The new Airbus A400M tactical transport turboprop aircraft, scheduled to make its first flight in early 2008, will use Saft ULM rechargeable nickel-cadmium batteries to provide onboard power for engine starting and electrical systems backup. This is the latest contract to result from the long-term co-operation between Saft and the EADS-Casa teams, and in placing the battery contract, a key consideration for EADS-Casa was to ensure security of supply and reliable service throughout a major long-term project, with around 370 A400M aircraft to be delivered between 2009 and 2025. Saft’s previous track record with Airbus projects combined with tried and tested product and logistical support available worldwide proved decisive. The battery Saft has developed for the A400M is a 40Ah unit. The ULM design provides a higher capacity battery, lighter in weight per Ah, with extended maintenance intervals and superior low temperature performance.
