Energy Storage for Hybrid & Electric Ships

Sterling PlanB Energy Solution provides energy storage solutions to optimize or replace diesel in marine, grid and heavy industrial applications. PlanB batteries have been specifically designed for marine and industrial applications: applications where safety, reliability and cost are the most important aspects of a battery system. PlanB battery systems are used to power hybrid and fully electric ferries, offshore supply vessels, large hybrid yachts, industrial machinery and in land-based grid energy projects.

Experience

Over 17MWh of installed systems. PlanB energy storage systems power the world's largest electric ferries, workboats and industrial machinery.

CellCoolTM

PlanB CellCool liquid cooling precisely manages internal cell and battery temperature to provide greater safety and best in class cycle life.

System Safety

Integral fire prevention is in every PlanB battery. Maintaining low cell temperature at high power cycling or in a fault scenario is the key to lithium-ion safety.

CellSwap

PlanB CellSwap - replace only the cells at end of system life instead of the whole system. Lower battery cost, reduced size and performance guaranteed for life.

The Zero Emission Maritime Goal

The electrification of the marine industry is here. Battery powered ferries, fishing boats and yachts use less or zero fuel, experience reduced maintenance costs, increased safety and the added benefit of no noise. Harbour communities no longer deal with polluted air, and marine ecosystems benefit from the elimination of loud ship engines disrupting critical sonar communication for marine mammals.

Fully Electric

Electric ferries use batteries as the primary power for the ship, eliminating diesel fuel and emissions. Suitable for short haul ferries of any size, the batteries are charged at each end of their trip from shore power and can be used as a UPS for the port in case of shore side grid outages.

Plug-In Hybrid

Batteries power the ship entirely on electric power for specific operations, such as in harbour cruising, reducing emissions, fuel and engine run time. Often used for long haul ferries and some workboats. Batteries are charged with shore power and excess energy generated from engine.

Hybrid

Hybrid ships can vary greatly in type and energy storage size. Suited for peak shaving during dynamic positioning operations, the batteries absorb load variations so that engines only see the average system load. This improves fuel efficiency, reduces engine hours and low load operations. Batteries are recharged using excess engine energy.
