Rolls-Royce unveils marine battery system

Rolls-Royce has released SAVe Energy, a Li-ion battery system designed for ships. Rolls-Royce has provided energy storage systems since 2010, but it previously depended on third parties for the battery packs. The new system is liquid-cooled and modular to accommodate different vessel classes and requirements. Along with The Norwegian Research Council of Norway’s ENERGIX funding, several companies including Color Line, Norled and the Norwegian Coastal Administration Shipping Company have partnered to develop SAVe Energy. The system was recently approved by DNV GL, and it is intended for use in battery-powered and hybrid vessels as well as for peak shaving and spinning reserve needs.

“The electrification of ships is building momentum. From 2010 we have delivered battery systems representing about 15 MWh in total. However now the potential deployment of our patent pending SAVe Energy in 2019 alone is 10-18 MWh. Battery systems have become a key component of our power and propulsions systems, and SAVe Energy is being introduced on many of the projects we are currently working on. This includes the upgrade programme for Hurtigruten’s cruise ferries, the advanced fishing vessel recently ordered by Prestfjord and the ongoing retrofits of offshore support vessels. As a system provider we can find the best solution considering both installation and operational cost,” says Rolls-Royce Executive Andreas Seth.
