This Dutch startup wants to electrify industrial-scale machines


The Netherlands-based Eleo is on a mission to accelerate the transition to a fossil-free future. How? Well, by providing high-tech batteries to the machines and vehicles most difficult to electrify.

These mainly include industrial, off-highway machines in the construction, agricultural, and forestry sectors — but also cover electric mobility, ranging from cargo and last-mile delivery vehicles to vessels.

Eleo started out as a student team at the Eindhoven University of Technology, and was founded in 2017. Since then it’s been designing and manufacturing in-house battery systems that boost a high level of performance and flexibility.

Specifically, the startup offers modular batteries that are scalable in size, voltage, and capacity, in order to meet custom-specific requirements. Users can also ensure that the battery packs are achieving optimal performance through Eleo’s proprietary battery management system (BMS), which provides estimations on the state-of-charge (SOC), state-of-health (SOH), and state-of-power (SOP).
