Lithium-ion energy storage systems supplier, Plan B Energy Storage (PBES), is launching a new Harpoon battery product line which promises to drive faster ROI on marine batteries.

Harpoon Power 65 and Harpoon Energy 97 energy storage systems utilise the latest advances in lithium-ion cell technology to deliver what PBES calls a "safe, high quality and commercially viable clean technology solution for ship owners and operators".

Brent Perry, CEO, PBES, said: “Through the Harpoon batteries, we can provide a faster path to return on investment for ship owners and operators, while delivering a significant contribution to wider industry efforts to reduce emissions and combat shipping’s impact on the environment.”

The new range has been specifically designed for commercial applications and with up to 90,000-hour calendar life.

Harpoon Energy 97 is well suited to for cruise ships and fast ferries where space and weight are at a premium. The system provides a 35% decrease in the cost, weight and volume of the battery while maintaining industry leading quality and safety standards.

While Harpoon Power 65 is a continuation of an existing PBES line and is capable of more than 15,000 cycles at 80% Depth of Discharge (DOD). This makes it ideal for applications where more power is needed for longer, such as vessels operating in remote locations.

Both systems incorporate PBES’ Thermal-Stop and CellCool systems, which together prevent lithium battery fire (thermal runaway).

The systems also utilise PBES’ CellSwap technology which allows for the re-coring of batteries after five years.
