Williams Advanced Engineering awarded Formula E Gen3 battery contract

1 July 2020

Williams Advanced Engineering (WAE) has been awarded the exclusive contract to supply the Gen3 battery system of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. It will showcase advanced battery technology through improved energy density, lifecycle, durability, fast-charging and power capability.

The announcement revives a highly successful relationship that began in 2014 when WAE was chosen as the first supplier of batteries to the electric racing series. It built and produced a bespoke battery system in just under a year, which successfully launched and powered the entire grid over four seasons of racing.

“We’re extremely proud to be appointed the Gen3 battery supplier for the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, particularly as we have been an integral part of the series from the start,” said Craig Wilson, WAE managing director. “High-performance batteries are one of WAE’s core competencies and I am confident we will add further value in the areas of energy density, thermal efficiency, overall performance and reliability. Racing in such a competitive environment is also a challenge for batteries, but one that we embrace. We look forward to supporting the series as it moves to its next exciting chapter.”
