High Energy Batteries (India) Ltd

High Energy Batteries (India) Limited (formerly known as Simco Meters Ltd) was established as Public Limited Company in Sep.'91. The Company is a battery manufacturer with its factory located at Mathur near Trichy. The batteries are manufactured for use in Indian Army Navy Air Force and Launch Vehicles and also manufactures commercial batteries for auto and standby VRLA Applications.The Company was established at the specific invitation of the Directorate of Technical Development and Production (Air) Government of India to develop and manufacture 45-Ah silver oxide zinc aircraft batteries as replacements for imported batteries and other high-energy batteries. The technology to exclusively manufacture 45-Ah silver oxide zinc cells was obtained from Yardney Electric Corporation (YEC).The Company was inaugurated on 3 Dec.'79 at Mahtur (Pudukkottai district) Tamilnadu. Trial production started in 1980. Since 1982 HEBL has been carrying out in-house R&D activities to develop other types of silver oxide zinc secondary and primary batteries.HEB R&D Laboratories established in 1982 moved into its new premises in 1986 about a kilometre from the production plant. As of Dec.'95 HEB's R&D Laboratories has 32 scientists and engineers as its staff. The development work carried out by it so far can be said to mainly span three electrothermal (battery) systems -- silver oxide zinc (primary and secondary) nickel-cadmium and silver-chloride magnesium sea-water batteries. In addition substantial development work has been devoted to emerging technologies such as the alkaline manganese-dioxide and fibre nickel-cadmium (FNC) technologies. During the year 1996-97 the installed capacity of Silver Zinc Batteries was expanded from 1010000 to 2400000 Ampere Hours.During 1998-99 the company has been accorded with ISO 9001 from M/s Underwriters Laboratories INC.
