First Nidec-brand battery system
Nidec ASI has launched its first Nidec-brand battery system designed for large and medium-sized zero-emission vessel propulsion systems.
According to Nidec, the batteries differ from those currently available on the market due to features including the "Single Large String", a large module which is better suited to making up large battery packs and significantly simplifying system set-up.
Dominique Llonch, CEO of Nidec ASI and chairman of Nidec Industrial Solutions, said the marine industry can play an essential role in sustainable development progress, “converting to electric boating which cannot be separated from the spread in new-generation storage systems”.
He added: “Hence our decision to present our first Nidec ASI battery system, which responds to the growing demand for cutting-edge solutions.”
Reduction in modules
In addition to offering greater battery efficiency, durability, safety and performance, the "Single Large String" will also make it possible to reduce the number of modules in each battery pack and the number of DC/DC & DC/AC converters. This will simplify wiring and installation on different types of vessels and facilitate the use of hybrid propulsion systems with clear benefits in terms of weight and volume reduction while also allowing greater flexibility in naval architecture.
The batteries are fitted with control systems on each individual cell and detectors to quickly identify any signs of degeneration.
