Mayhew Performance and G&L Innovation have announced a partnership for the exclusive distribution rights for Canada, Chile, Peru, Argentina, and Brazil for G&L’s ABI (Automatic Battery Interrupter) Disconnect system.
Sudbury-headquartered Mayhew Performance specializes in battery electric vehicles, risk management and health and safety.
The ABI Disconnect system has two main purposes. The first is protecting the battery in the event of a deployment of the fire suppression system, where it automatically isolates and disconnects the batteries. Second, when the ABI detects inactivity, it removes the load and isolates the batteries prolonging the battery life.
“ABI saves lives, property, production and the environment one box at a time. We are truly excited to partner with a global leader and partner like Mayhew Performance who specializes in battery electric equipment and underground mining,” Gerald Laughter, president and CEO of G&L Innovation, said in a release.
“We are extremely excited to partner with G&L Innovation, LLC and implement the ABI Disconnect in our underground mines around the world to showcase a unique and innovative approach to battery safety for underground mining equipment. The ABI Disconnect is adaptable to diesel or BEV equipment for safe operations and managing risk and safety for operators with a simple installation, as a low-cost solution,” added Mike Mayhew, chairman of Mayhew Performance.
