Eco Marine Power launches hybrid battery packs

Eco Marine Power (EMP) and its partners, Furukawa Battery and Teramoto Iron Works, have launched two UB-50-12 hybrid battery packs for ship, offshore, and land-based renewable energy projects.

The battery packs are available in 2.4kWh and 3.6kWh configurations. The batteries include UltraBattery technology, supplied by The Furukawa Battery Company and a battery rack system developed by Teramoto Iron Works and EMP.

The battery rack system is scalable and multiple battery packs can be installed together to provide all ranges of energy from small-scale to larger energy storage projects.

Each battery pack includes UB-50-12 batteries, internal cables and frame kit.

UB series batteries have also been approved for use by ClassNK and certified by EMP.

Mr. Kodaka, general manager, overseas sales and marketing department at Furukawa Battery stated: “Our UltraBattery technology is ideally suited for renewable energy applications and we look forward to promoting the use of renewable energy on ships together with Eco Marine Power.”

Mr. Teramoto, president of Teramoto Iron Works commented: “Our company is pleased to be working with Furukawa Battery and Eco Marine Power in bringing this new product to the market and it also allows us to demonstrate again our ability to produce high quality marine-grade steel products.”

UB-50-12 battery packs will become the standard energy storage solution for EMP’s Aquarius Marine Solar Power and will also be offered as stand-alone configurations.
