Lithium battery container for e-car batteries RETRON 4000

Container for lithium-ion batteries RETRON 4000

The largest example of our container family for the safe storage of e-car lithium-ion batteries.

Safe storage and transport of your e-car battery

The currently largest container of the RETRON system is the RETRON 4000. In terms of design, the steel container is almost identical to the RETRON 3000. The only difference is the size. In the RETRON 4000, lithium-ion batteries with a payload of up to 1,000 kg find a safe place. These are installed in electric cars or electric forklifts, for example. The container can be stacked and craned and can be lifted with a pallet truck. Of course, it has the unique insulation and is equipped with the RETRON fire protection cushions.
