To facilitate the growth of Infinitev’s hybrid battery exchange program and value-add engineering services for battery EVs, Infinitev established a state-of-the-art facility in Melbourne’s Southeast. This dedicated site is built with sustainability in mind - using solar power combined with on-site microgrid energy storage, a Level 2 EV charger, and rainwater tanks for irrigation and grey water use.
Any electricity not provided by solar (either direct generation or via the battery energy storage system) is certified 100% renewable through GreenPower. Services offered at the facility include controlled storage of new warranty batteries under strict temperature and humidity conditions, diagnosis of battery failure using sophisticated test equipment, and design and development of BESS from repurposed EV batteries.
The commercialisation and expansion of the Infinitev operations is supported by a $500,000 grant from Sustainability Victoria. In addition to the Australian site, Infinitev has established a similar facility in Auckland, New Zealand. The Onehunga-based facility is home to Infinitev’s hybrid battery exchange program for New Zealand customers and provides a base for its emerging EV battery services and energy storage systems.
