Ducasse sur Seine – PowerRack

PowerTech Systems is pleased to announce that it is equipping the “Ducasse sur Seine”, 100% electric boat with its  PowerRack®  modular lithium battery system.

This 100% electric boat (propulsion, on-board equipment, kitchens, etc.) is powered entirely by our Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries, representing a stored energy of 720 kWh divided into two totally independent PowerRack banks.

The PowerRack battery system, certified by Bureau Veritas in early 2018, consists of 24 cabinets of 30kWh in 700V DC, connected in parallel. These batteries represent a weight of about 9 tons on board. This cabinet system limits floor space and allows energy to be stacked over the entire height of the hull, making the installation compact and integrated into the boat.

The “Ducasse sur Seine” has been in production since September 10, 2018. It delights the taste buds of its passengers twice a day (lunch and dinner), every day of the week. The trip to the heart of Paris is done without vibrations, silently, and without any pollution.

The official inauguration of the new vessel took place on 25 September 2018 in the presence of Mrs Anne Hidalgo, Mayor of Paris, and other personalities.

New products : PowerBrick+ 48V-61Ah and PowerBrick+ 12V-250Ah

PowerBrick-61Ah-48V-and-250Ah-12V

Poissy, April 4, 2018

PowerTech Systems, a manufacturer of innovative energy storage systems specializing in Lithium-ion Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) technologies, is expanding its PowerBrick+ product line and introduces two new batteries: PowerBrick+ 48V-61Ah and PowerBrick+ 12V-250Ah.

The PowerBrick+ product line includes 12V batteries with a capacity of 7.5Ah, 12Ah, 20Ah, 40Ah, 55Ah, 100Ah, as well as 48V batteries with a capacity of 25Ah. Each of them can be assembled in series or in parallel according to the expressed need.

PowerTech Systems is now expanding its offer with Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries of 48V 61Ah and 12V 250Ah for a power of 3200 Wh each.

A large, totally secure energy capacity

PowerTech Systems Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries are fully secured and protected against the risk of explosion and self-ignition. Equipped with an integrated BMS (Battery Management System), the operation of each battery cell is monitored in real time.

Innovative technology with considerable advantages

In addition to optimum safety, PowerBrick+ 48V-61Ah and 12V-250Ah batteries are 2 times lighter, 2 times smaller than equivalent lead-acid batteries. Lifespan is up to 10 times longe than AGMr battery hanks to up to 5000 charging cycles.

Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries ideal for a wide range of applications

  • Marine applications, boats, catamarans, sailboats, electric boats,
  • Caravanning, motor home, mobile home, chalet, cottage,
  • On-grid and off-grid energy use, self-consumption, solar photovoltaic energy storage, wind energy storage,
  • Robotics
  • Forklift trucks
  • AGV
  • Electronic equipment, radio, emergency, transmission,
  • Converter, inverter, central unit and electronic security system (alarms, CCTV, fire detection, etc.)
  • Domestic application, automatic gate, pumping,
  • Electric vehicle,

Electric streamliner powered by a Lithium Ion battery from PowerTech Systems!

Estaca_PowerTechSystems_batterie_lithium_ion_fer_phosphate_12V_ecologique

21 French engineers students in aeronautics of the Estaca group have a dream ! They wanted to participate in the 2017 Bonneville Speed week with an atypical vehicle… An electric streamliner! And they did it!

November, 2017

Once upon a time, an electric streamliner…

Estaca__PowerTechSystems_On_The_Salt_12V_Lithium_Ion_Iron_Phosphate_battery

Not beating the record of 345km/h, they managed to reach nearly 250km/h with their electric racing car on the salt lake of Bonneville, Utah, USA.

The electric streamliner was equipped with two engines of E-formula 1, high technologies, a high power lithium Iron Phosphate battery. This latter is designed and built by
PowerTechSystems
. Well prepared, they were close to break the speed record for an electric car!

An ambitious project of 7m length which provoked deep reactions, increasing renown and curiosity about the future technologies.

Watch this space with new projects ideas as the construction of a racing car… And the participation in a complete season of ” free racing ” (low-cost motor racing).

The project followed by PowerTechSystems :

Lithium Ion battery for ESTACA On The Salt is ready !


June, 2017

This high performance Lithium ion iron Phosphate LiFe (LiFePO4) battery is designed by the PowerTech Systems teams. This lithium ion battery is able to deliver 250kW during the race in order to beat the speed record of the Bonneville Speed Week (USA) in August 2017.

Good luck guys for the final race !

Lithium Ion batteries for a 400km/h speed record !


October, 2016

PowerTech Systems is glad to be a part of ESTACA Engineering School speed record project: Estaca On The Salt !

Speed Record

The goal ? Building a 100% electric car capable to beat the World record of 343Km/h (213.084 MpH), and, why not, to exceed 400km/h.

PowerTech Systems will design a lightweight battery with very high discharge capabilities (250kW peak power!) to help the team to beat this record.
