Solving the challenges of large ESS installations

The maritime industry claims the need for greener ships to reduce GHG and comply with new environmental regulations. The use of green technologies represents one of the solutions offered by the market. The battery system is certainly one of the most promising and proven technologies available today to meet this need. The result is a growing demand to install onboard massive battery systems with more embedded energy. Given the space and weight constraints onboard, the challenge is frequently technical rather than economic. Spear’s R&D team has developed a new solution to address this challenge.
