ABB offers Containerized ESS plug-in battery power solution for wide range of vessels

13 Sep 2021

Technology group ABB on Friday (10 September) said it has developed a containerized energy storage at scale housed in a 20ft high-cube ISO container ready to integrate with the vessel’s main power distribution system.

The Containerized ESS solution features energy storage retrofitting, with all batteries, converters, transformer, controls, cooling and auxiliary equipment pre-assembled in the self-contained unit for ‘plug and play’ use.

“Fuel savings, lower emissions and increased safety during operation and maintenance are the demand drivers for energy storage systems in the newbuild ship market, where ABB has extensive experience. With Containerized ESS, we are delighted to be able to offer these benefits to owners of existing ships with a one-stop retrofit solution,” said Jyri Jusslin, Head of Service, ABB Marine & Ports.

Containerized ESS solution is suitable for integration on board a wide variety of ships. Offshore support vessels, for instance, would particularly benefit from a self-contained solution, as the electrical room space on board is especially limited. Flexible and cost-effective energy storage system technology would also be relevant to container ships, ferries, drill ships and other vessel types.

“The Containerized ESS expands integration options across multiple types of ships and delivers a solution that can be fully serviced from outside the unit for enhanced safety. Knowing that there is a simple way to integrate an energy storage system could be the extra encouragement needed for owners to consider incorporating batteries for vessel efficiency and, especially, for sustainable power,” notes Jyri Jusslin.

The Containerized ESS offers one of the highest energy densities in the market within a 20ft container, offering a standardized installation, which adds up to lower costs and faster delivery.

Containerized ESS is a technically mature solution that answers to shipowners’ demand to retrofit vessel power distribution systems and add a battery of significant capacity. The pre-assembled and factory-tested equipment and cabling make the Containerized ESS solution easy to integrate with all vessel sub-systems. It is also supported by the ABB Ability Marine Remote Diagnostics System, offers continuous monitoring for preventive maintenance and fast and easy system repair.
