Rolls-Royce Launches New Modular Li-ion Battery System for Ships:  SAVe Energy

Rolls-Royce is launching a lithium-ion based energy storage system for ships.  Rolls-Royce has been delivering energy storage systems since 2010, however the actual energy storage units were previously supplied by an external party.

Rolls-Royce now offers SAVe Energy, a cost-competitive, highly efficient and liquid-cooled battery system with a modular design that enables the product to scale according to energy and power requirements.

SAVe Energy complies with international legislations for low- and zero-emission propulsion systems.

The development work has been partly funded by the Norwegian Research Council of Norway’s ENERGIX program.  The three ship owning companies Color Line, Norled, and the Norwegian Coastal Administration Shipping Company have been partners in the development, ensuring that the energy storage system covers a wide variety of marine applications, including ferries, cruise vessels, and multi-purpose vessels.
