Fully integrated Li-ion modules are available in Energy and Power modules to suit a wide variety of marine full-electric and hybrid electric applications

Saft, a designer and manufacturer of advanced technology batteries for industry, is launching its new Seanergy range of lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery modules developed to offer safety, performance and reliability advantages of Li-ion Super-Iron Phosphate (SLFP) chemistry in a fully integrated solution designed specifically for civil marine propulsion installations. The new range includes a variety of Energy and Power modules that offer the flexibility and adaptability to create highly efficient, cost-effective battery systems to power full-electric and hybrid electric applications for a wide variety of vessels including workboats, ferries, offshore support, cruise-liners and cargo ships.

“Silent, clean and cost-effective operations are now key priorities for the marine transportation industry,” said Didier Jouffroy, Saft’s Marine Products and Applications Manager.  “That’s why Saft has responded by developing the Seanergy range that offers the advantages of our advanced SLFP battery chemistry in a safe, reliable and flexible modular package.”

The trend for electric propulsion is being driven by the needs of the civil marine industry to demonstrate that it is sustainable and energy efficient. This means it has to adapt fast to meet ever tighter environmental regulations that aim to reduce both emissions and noise nuisance while increasing efficiency. New concepts in ship architecture are now incorporating advanced battery technology for both pure electric propulsion and hybrid systems, where the batteries work in conjunction with diesel generators, or possibly gas turbines, and electric motors.
