Stena Line and Callenberg deploy large energy storage solution
Swedish ship operator Stena Line is currently developing a concept for their ship M/V Stena Jutlandica. The concept will utilize a Large Energy Storage System including automation and interfaces to the ships existing power distribution.
Concept development is in collaboration with system integrator Trident Maritime Systems (formerly, Callenberg Technology Group) and will be a “self-contained” solution including all essential components fitted into one container unit.
The decision to make it containerized will give the option to move the whole unit to another vessel if the route or requirements change.
The modular design also enables components to be replaced when new technology is available which makes the system sustainable for the future.
The unit will be located on the weather deck and have the capacity to supply up to 3,000 kW instantaneously and has an energy content of approximately 1,000 kWh.
The solution will contain all components required to be fully automated, including battery banks, converters, transformers and control systems. Peripheral equipment for safety, cooling and monitoring of performance is also included to meet requirements from classification societies and authorities.
