State-Of-The-Art Battery Technology Can Cut Fire Risk

New battery technologies can increase energy density and reduce risk compared with lithium (Li)-ion batteries. With growing demand for onboard energy storage on tugs, alternatives to Li-ion technology, which has fire risks both as an energy source and during transport, need to be found.
ABS principal engineer for corporate technology Mejdi Kammoun says different technologies could replace the liquid electrolyte used in Li-ion batteries, reducing risks to vessel safety. “Battery chemistry is evolving to reflect the emergence of new technologies, in the process addressing safety concerns and energy issues, providing dividends for maritime end users,” says Mr Kammoun.
