to facilitate, test, and develop low-carbon solutions on our journey to become carbon neutral by 2050,” explains Søren Toft, Maersk COO.Propelling marine vessels with battery power alone is still years away from being a technically- and economically viable option. However marine battery systems can be used to improve the efficiency of a vessel’s onboard electrical systems such as the Maersk Cape Town’s generators. By maintaining the vessel’s auxiliary generators at a more optimal load, and avoiding running generators when not needed, overall fuel consumption can be

up to 8 knots and 600 meter swaths provide for an area coverage rate of 3 sq. km. / hr.   While Kraken is best known for its sonar systems, the company is actively investing in additional technologies. Current technologies under development include real-time laser scanners, pressure tolerant battery systems, efficient electric thrusters, artificial intelligence, subsea resident docking systems and deep water vehicles.     (As published in the January/February 2017 edition of Marine Technology Reporter

General Atomics Battery for New Navy Submersible

General Atomics Electromagnetic Systems (GA-EMS) signed a contract with Lockheed Martin to provide Lithium-ion Fault Tolerant (LiFT) battery systems for use on U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) new Dry Combat Submersible (DCS), a long endurance delivery vehicle capable of transporting divers in a dry environment.  The GA-EMS LiFT battery system will power the DCS propulsion and internal support systems.     “Our unique solution provides the energy needed to safely propel and power the DCS at the distances and depths required to deliver personnel to their mission destinatio


At Hamburg port E-mobility Project, BESIC enters crucial phase

. Dr. Hans-Jürgen Appelrath, member of the Managing Board at the Energy Research Centre of Lower Saxony (EFZN), commented: “For electric mobility to succeed in practice, we need information and communication technology (ICT) which can manage fleets of electric vehicles with a pool of battery systems, for example. In addition to this, the Container Terminal Altenwerder simulation allows us to study the effects of different charging strategies. It also supplies predictive data about electricity requirements in connection with e-mobility which is relevant for the energy industry.” As
