Europositron manufactures prototypes under the management of Mr. Rainer Partanen. For the manufacture of the devices the company will rent a space in Helsinki which meets required purity grade. The space for the manufacture must be to clinically sterile standards.

Mr.Rainer Partanen will choose two assistants, of which at least one is competent with electric chemical measuring and the other in metallic and electric measuring. These persons will be hired when financing for the project has been confirmed, and they have to be able to work independently because their work includes the acquiring of the necessary raw materials, to advise the subcontractors of the manufacturing the different parts and the assembling of the batteries. All necessary equipment for testing the parts and the final batteries will be obtained and installed prior to production space.


During the research in the 1990's and in the following manufacture of in the tests Ab Europostron Oy has used more than ten subcontractors. The most important of them have been involved in the manufacture of prototype parts for motor vehicles. Teräs-Rait Oy in Helsinki and Rst-Soikkeli Oy have been involved in the preparation and cutting of the plates. Bodycote Lämpökäsittely Oy in Helsinki has been involved in the ion coating of the plates and VTT Valmistustekniikka (Technical Research Centre of Finland, Manufacturing Technology) was involved in the ultra sonic welding.

Furthermore the following companies have supplied different materials: Tamro Oyj, Helsinki (chemicals), Nordinox Oy, Helsinki (Rst thin foil), Asva Oy, Helsinki (Al-plates), Vantaan Kumitekniikka Oy, Vantaa (seals of electrode plates) and Suomen Plastic Oy, Helsinki (battery frames).


The trained personnel of Europositron will perform all tests according to the norms. After that tests of the manufactured battery prototypes will be ordered from some impartial testing company like e.g. VTT (Technical Research Centre of Finland).

Manufacture and Management of the Verifying Prototypes

Rainer Partanen will carry the day-to-day responsibility for maintaining the agreed schedules, evaluation the test results and overseeing the tasks beeing carried out by the two assistants. To verify the performance of the Partanen Europositron technology a 12 V rechargeable battery giving a short time power of 200 - 400 A will be manufactured. The volume of this battery will be about 0.5 litres and weight about 1 kg (a present corresponding lead/acid starting battery has the volume of 8 litres and weight 16 kg). Also a prototype battery for electrical vehicles will be produced. This battery will have the capacity of 80 kWh, the volume of about 40 litres and the weight of about 60 kg. This means, that the battery would be app. 20 times lighter and smaller in volume than present batteries.
