PowerModule® battery system obtains Type Approval Certification(TAC) from Bureau Veritas for marine applications

Saint Cyr l’Ecole, France, Dec 2023

Today marks a major step forward for PowerTech Systems, which has obtained marine Type Approval Certification (TAC) for its PowerModule® range of modular batteries.

This international-wide certification, obtained from the Bureau Veritas Marine et Offshore organization, guarantees that the PowerModule complies with several standards, tests and procedures:

  • IEC 62619:2022 (Standard for cell safety and resistance to thermal runaway)
  • IEC 62620:2014 (Lithium ion cell durability standard)
  • Vibration and environmental tests for marine safety
  • Electrical and functional testing
  • ISO 9001 quality system

Battery modules are also tested and certified for safe transport of lithium-ion batteries (UN38.3 standard).

Thanks to its equivalence with other certification bodies (DNV-GL, LOYDS, RINA, etc.), this certification enables PowerModules to be used in all naval electrification projects requiring international marine classification.
