Rolls-Royce Launches Lithium Ion Battery for Ships

Thanks to Alain Samoun for sending the following comment:

British manufacturer Rolls-Royce announced on its website , Monday, August 20, the launch of a lithium-ion electric battery for ships. The company has to deliver a battery system for the ships of the Norwegian company Hurtigruten. This is, in my opinion, what Rossi should be doing with its e-Cat instead of selling heat. Using steam engine, it would certainly be competitive with lithium batteries.

Here’s an excerpt from the press release here:

“Rolls-Royce is launching a lithium-ion based energy storage system for ships. The gain for the ship owners is a clean, safe and cost-efficient complete system.

Energy storage is a major green investment for a ship owner. Returns are maximised when the system is correctly dimensioned for the specific ship, and includes intelligent power control. Rolls-Royce have been delivering energy storage systems since 2010, however the actual energy storage units were previously supplied by an external party.

Rolls-Royce now offers SAVe Energy, a cost competitive, highly efficient and liquid cooled battery system with a modular design that enables the product to scale according to energy and power requirements. SAVe Energy comply with international legislations for low and zero emission propulsion systems.”
