June 22 (Renewables Now) - Battery maker Saft, a subsidiary of French multinational TotalEnergies SE (EPA:TTE), on Tuesday launched a new lithium-ion battery system for full-electric and hybrid vessels to offer the marine industry a cleaner and competitively-priced solution to power a wide range of boats.

The new Seanergy 2.0 battery has high energy density of 130 watt-hours per liter, which makes for a compact solution for even the most restricted onboard spaces. Ship integrators can use individual modules to build large-scale battery systems up to 1,060 V, complete with power, safety, management and communication capabilities, Saft said.

The system can be used in ferries, workboats and tugs, offshore support vessels, cruise liners and yachts, and help vessel operators reduce fuel consumption and CO2 and nitrogen oxides emissions.

Seanergy 2.0 is made in Saft’s facility in Poitiers, France, the battery maker added.
