Damen’s order marks Echandia Marine’s full commercial launch of a new battery system developed using Japanese electronics giant Toshiba’s SCiB™ technology.
It is the result of years of development work, partly funded by EU in the BB Green projects. The system is a lightweight, long-lasting, technologically-advanced battery system with LTO-cells for fast and frequent charging. The benefits of Lithium-Titanium oxide (LTO), previously considered too expensive for the marine market, are substantial. The primary advantages are high power output, high charging capability, long life and extremely safe.
“With Toshiba’s long experience of LTO batteries, we can offer our customer a safe and cost-effective battery system and plan to focus on LTO batteries exclusively for the present time. We are proud that after extensive investigations into environmental performance, cost-efficiency, optimal passenger experience and reliability, Damen Shipyards ultimately chose Echandia’s LTO battery system” says Echandia’s CEO Magnus Eriksson
