Maritime Battery Systems – get a first introduction to this new field

Battery Systems on board ships have become an instrumental component in cost efficiency, complying with environmental regulations, and optimizing energy efficiency. All electric and hybrid ships with energy storage in large Li-ion batteries can provide significant reductions in fuel cost, maintenance and emissions as well as improved responsiveness, regularity and safety.

The importance of cleaner energy in shipping makes the use of batteries increasingly vital. In the future, most ships will probably be hybrid or plug-in hybrid.

DNV GL and ZEM have now joined forces to deliver a training course that introduces maritime battery systems and gives an overview of possibilities and challenges for hybrid and all electric propulsion in maritime power plants.

Participants will be familiarised with different aspects of implementing battery systems onboard ships in a safe, economical and effective way.

The course covers the following points:

  • Why battery systems in the maritime sector?
  • Battery basics with focus on Li-ion technology
  • Main factors for a safe and cost effective battery system
  • Class requirements for battery systems
  • Risk analyses
  • Technical, economic and environmental related analyses

This 1-day “Maritime Battery Systems Introduction Course” will benefit technical staff, management, yards, suppliers, ship designers, consultants and anyone who has interest in the electrification and hybridization of the marine industry.
