Energy storage systems (ESS) are an essential part for modern, environmental-friendly and energy-efficient ship propulsion systems. By using different ship operating modes, the energy balance can be significantly improved and thus, the fuel consumption and the emission volume can be reduced or in case of fully electric systems, emission can be even completely avoided. By using an energy storage system, the combustion engines operate mainly within the optimum speed and load range and this reduces the maintenance costs. Furthermore, the redundancy of electrical and common propulsion drives minimises immensely the blackout risk. In the field of energy storage, the battery storages belong to the most common and most efficient storage systems.
PBES (www.pbes.com/) is the market leader in the field of lithium-ion battery storage and their battery storage system is currently one of the most efficient and secure systems worldwide. As a well-known supplier of reliable and customised automation systems for all ship types, we integrate the PBES systems in our own solutions.
Thanks to the modular system concept, it is easy to customise your energy storage solution exactly to your application. It is based on PBES CellCoolTM liquid cooled, encapsulated high power battery modules which are installed via „plug & play“ in modular racks. This enables simple system scalability and configuration, installation and also a simple replacement in case of service. Furthermore, it reduces purchase, installation and maintenance costs – a cost-effective and sustainable solution.
