For example, if a tender includes the following words: “Batteries”, “Energy storage”, “accumulator”, “ Battery”, “Supercharger”, “turbocharger”, “charger”, storage devices”, “loaders”, “battery-powered”, “storage system”,etc… this tender will be considered as including a scope of work related to batteries.
