Rockwell Automation and Cadenza Innovation working together to explore driving energy storage


November 15, 2021  by Manufacturing AUTOMATION

Rockwell Automation has announced that it is partnering with Cadenza Innovation to define a strategic relationship. Both companies have a shared goal of building high-performance battery cell production lines.

In 2022, the companies will work together to develop a customer cloud portal to manage deployed distributed energy resources, an end-to-end battery manufacturing execution system (MES), and equipment automation to support the expansion of Cadenza Innovation’s battery manufacturing in the US and abroad.

The companies intend to create a full digital thread that feeds information from business systems to the factory floor and subsequently out to the field-deployed energy storage systems. It will be a “closed loop”, with data from the field going back into Cadenza Innovation’s connected operations.

“We are excited to collaborate with Cadenza Innovation to build high-performance battery cell production. With Rockwell Automation’s global industry expertise in manufacturing and sustainability and Cadenza Innovation’s field-proven operational and mass production expertise in the battery market, we have aligned on our commitment to sustainability and innovation,” said Tom O’Reilly, vice-president of sustainability at Rockwell Automation.
