Default Symmetry within SnappyHexMesh

Dear Community,

I am very basic user of snappyHexMesh, I am curious if in SnappyHexMesh (SHM) symmetry is possible. I am trying to generate a mesh for two identical batteries placed in a domain. A schematic picture is attached (sorry due to confidentiality I can't post the real picture).

My job is to mesh the whole domain but due to the complex geometries of the batteries I just want to mesh half of the domain and by using some tools (mergeMesh stitchMesh) or by just using some symmetric boundary conditions I could simulate the flow for the whole domain.
