BEIJING, Aug. 17 (Xinhua) -- Jiangsu Azure Corporation (002245.SZ), announced on late Monday that its wholly-owned subsidiary Tenpower has recently signed a supply contract with the German Bosch Group (Bosch) to supply the latter with 87 million ternary cylindrical lithium batteries in 2022.
The total value of the contract is about 95.85 million U.S. dollars according to the current price of the above lithium batteries.
The supply volume accounts for about 21 percent of Tenpower's current lithium battery production capacity and 12 percent of its expected production capacity next year, according to the Shenzhen-listed company's filing to the stock exchange.
