FLEXSHIP concept for vessels' electrification

This presentation will offer attendees an overview of FLEXSHIP, an EU funded concept project consortium representing a multidisciplinary group composed of 16 partners from 9 countries including the UK. The project is aimed at the electrification of vessels by optimizing large battery electric power systems within fully battery electric and hybrid ships. The overall goal of FLEXSHIP is to develop and validate safe and reliable, flexible, modular, and scalable solutions for electrification of the waterborne sector. This includes the reliable design and development of modular battery packs; safe on-board integration; optimal design of EMS to maximize the operational flexibility and energy efficiency, and smart control for improved lifetime of the battery system and critical power components.
