Solus partners with QinetiQ

Electric vehicle (EV) charging solutions firm Solus Power has partnered with global defence company QinetiQ to support the evolving electrified military landscape. 

The strategic partnership through the signed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) aims to research and develop advanced EV charging solutions, appropriate to fleet charging and infrastructure, as well as to the specific needs of the Ministry of Defence (MOD).

Solus Power has developed a mobile charging solution centred around its ‘Kratos’ technology, which are modular, stackable and easily transported power units, each of which is the size of an attaché case and can be both easily deployed and shared between users.

The lithium-ion power units, described as ‘Jerry Cans of electricity’, can deliver ultrafast charging to the likes of electric vehicles, drones, or equipment.

The collaboration between the two companies sees QinetiQ supporting Solus Power to understand the needs of defence and security customers globally, in addition to providing their expertise in power sources and electrification. 

Stas Leonidou, CEO, Solus Power, said:

“Solus Power welcomes the opportunity recognised in this MOU to collaborate with an organisation of QinetiQ’s standing and experience in the defence sector, and with its exceptional record of innovation and solutions development,” 

Victoria Doherty, Head of Electrification, QinetiQ, said:

“Enabling the flexibility to provide electric power wherever and whenever it is needed underpins future operational advantage. By working across sectors to transfer existing solutions, we will accelerate success in this area.”
