Lithium-Ion for Marine traction

Lithium batteries for electric vessels

Like electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles, Lithium-ion technology is positioned as the technology of choice for marine vehicle traction. Lithium batteries are now able to replace the use of diesel fuel, allowing ship operators to meet emission restrictions and cost reduction targets.

Marine traction requires meeting strict criteria in terms of the safety of on-board systems, but also the reliability and robustness of equipment.
Once again, the safety and very long service life of Lithium Ferro Phosphate technology makes it an ideal candidate for this type of application.

Our PowerRack® system, initially designed for stationary energy storage, has been redesigned for use in passenger boats. The PowerRack® system has been certified by Bureau Veritas Marine & Off-Shore (equivalent to DNVGL or Lloyds institutes) as suitable for towing river and coastal vessels with passenger loads.

The PowerModule range, which incorporates the same philosophy of flexibility and modularity as the PowerRack range, is an ideal candidate for smaller boats or for smaller range constraints.

PowerModule is an advanced Lithium battery system for industrial vehicles, mid and heavy duty traction, robotics, and applications requiring high capacity and/or high voltage (up to 819.2V nominal).
Up to 128 modules can be assembled in series, in parallel and both series and parallel.
Depending on the size of the final installation, an external BMS may be required to control the system. For small systems with up to 16 modules and that do not require monitoring in the cloud, external BMS is not required.
