To cater to the rising demand for super capacitors in various industrial fields, Kerala-based electronics corporation Keltron is planning to set up a production facility at Keltron Component Complex Ltd (KCCL), Kannur.
The facility uses most the advanced technology developed by VSSC/ISRO (Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre/Indian Space Research Organisation) in super capacitor production, it said.
The MoU for technology transfer has been signed between KG Krishna Kumar, Managing Director, KCCL, and Elangovan, Deputy Director, VSSC.
The ₹42-crore project report will be submitted to the State Industries Department for approval. The indigenous production facility will have the capacity to produce more than 18 lakh super capacitors in a year.
A super capacitor (also known as ultra capacitor, or electrical double layer capacitor) is a high-capacity capacitor whose capacitance is much higher than normal capacitors but with lower voltage limits (up to 2.7 V). It typically stores up to 100 times more
