The new ranges of FLB and SLA batteries are now available.
FIAMM FLB range of valve regulated batteries has been designed to deliver the highest performances whilst combining excellent reliability and float-life. FLB high energy density allows compact battery layout and footprints, thus reducing the installation space. FLB blocs can be installed in cabinets or racks.
FIAMM SLA range of valve regulated batteries has been designed for applications demanding the highest level of reliability and security. FIAMM high integrity SLA range has been designed for the most critical applications, offering unsurpassed proven reliability, compliant with the highest recognised international standards.
Both new ranges use VRLA technology with 99% internal recombination efficiency, is non-spillable and maintenance free therefore requires no topping up of electrolyte during its float-life.
New product leaflets are also available and present the technical characteristics of the two ranges and the new battery models.
The new leaflets can be downloaded here:

October 14, 2013 marked the successful completion of the "COBAT EvK2Cnr - Top Recycling Mission” expedition.
The mission’s target was to replace the PV modules and FIAMM batteries in the “Pyramid” international research laboratory and observatory 5000 meters above sea level on the slopes of Mount Everest.
FIAMM’s commitment and contribution to this project goes a long way back. The partnership with the EvK2Cnr Committee was established in 1997 and it included the first supply of LM OPzS flooded batteries meant to store the energy generated by the photovoltaic panels installed on the Pyramid.
Some years later, FIAMM supplied more LM OPzS batteries (this time also intended to power the lodge), along with additional SMG OPzV gel batteries to power the ABC Station. The ABC Station, also called “the Shelter”, is the highest shelter in the world (located at 5087m above sea level) and it hosts all of the radio, TV and telephone transmission and reception equipment.
Upon completion of the mission COBAT, the Italian national consortium in charge of collecting used batteries, donated both the replaced batteries and photovoltaic modules to two associations in the Khumbu Valley, for a “Community Solar Station” that will provide electricity to the inhabitants of the towns.

FIAMM Industrial Batteries is an official technical partner of e-QBO, “an architecture from the future, a digital monolith capable of communicating and interacting thanks to its power and design, and to our expertise.”
The unique shape of the off-grid island was conceived and designed by the architect Romolo Stanco. Thanks to our batteries e-QBO is capable of storing energy autonomously and making it available again if needed.
The “cube” was first launched in Milan at Piazza San Fedele and later installed inside the Archeological Park of Selinunte during the third international meeting “Architects meet in Selinunte”. During the event, the cube was used to light the park as well as to provide power to the festival’s 84m-long table and to electrical and electronic devices.

Last year FIAMM became a technical sponsor of ITA556 by providing skipper Federico Cuciuc with the accumulators required for onboard energy.
During the long sails on the ITA556, FIAMM's batteries played an essential role because they stored the energy mainly generated by the PV-system and released it during nights and cloudy days. The batteries provided continuity of power supply to the autopilot as well as to the security and navigation systems.
Federico completed the latest Italian mini 6.50 league races among the first positions, which allowed him to qualify for the Transat 2013. This marked an extraordinary achievement in his career as the regatta is well known for being among the most extreme of the Atlantic crossings. It takes place every two years in solitary and covers a distance of 7500 km.
