A giant pile to quickly recharge ferries Electric

Stena Group project to reuse batteries lithium ions of the automotive and transport industry for energy storage in ports

Making a giant battery to recharge ferries Electric. Thus could be defined the goal of a project of the Swedish shipping company Stena Line CO-funded by the EU that will study how to reuse spent batteries in the transport industry to store energy ports, to be used in the future for charging electric ferries and, in general, as a source of energy alternative for ships parked in ports.

In particular, the project will explore the opportunities to reuse the industry's lithium-ion batteries transport for the storage of energy in ports. The initiative involves the companies Stena - Batteryloop, Stena Recycling, Stena Rederi and Stena Line, the ports of Gothenburg and Kiel and classification company DNV GL and will have a lifetime two years.

"This one - pointed out Per Wimby, projecgt manager for the electrification of Stena Teknik - it's an important milestone electrification of maritime transport. Our project future "Stena Elektra", a fully electric , he explained, is already in the process of Design. In order for it to be successful, we need to resolve problem of how to quickly recharge the ferry. It's energy storage in ports through the use of batteries recycled is a very attractive and sustainable alternative future."

"The rapid charging of a large ferry - Batteryloop CEO Rasmus Bergstrom - requires an enormous amount of energy in short time and it's not certain that the power grid will be able to deliver it. Local energy reserves at ports could be provide a great solution to this problem."
