Williams Advanced Engineering, the technology company spawned from Williams Grand Prix Engineering, is heading a consortium that’ll launch a new Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) facility in Britain.
The facility will design, develop and produce batteries to be used in low-volume, high performance automotive products and act as a catalyst for technology development. The all-electric Aston Martin RapideE (pictured), which Williams Advanced Engineering has helped develop the technology for, could be the site’s halo product when it goes into production by the end of the decade.
Working alongside Unipart, Coventry University, Warwick University’s WMG, Productiv, MCT ReMan and The National Composites, the Williams Advanced Engineering’s APC consortium is being backed by the government following a successful bid for the project. Its facility will be able to adapt to changing demand in order to overcome existing supply chain gaps in the industry.
