Damen Shipyards Group and Skoon Energy Tuesday signed a cooperation agreement to study the large scale electrification of vessels.
Skoon focusses on the large-scale electrification of ships’ propulsion via management of a battery sharing network and strategically located charging hubs with a 100% clean energy supply.
Skoon Energy’s swappable battery packs – known as Skoonboxes – are planned for trial aboard a diesel-electric inland vessel later this year.
“With this partnership Damen is demonstrating its commitment to enabling sustainable solutions within the maritime industry,” says Skoon Energy founder Peter Paul van Voorst.
“We’re looking forward to working together with Damen to make fully electric shipping the norm within the maritime industry.”
Damen’s product portfolio includes examples of hybrid, LNG and fully electric propelled vessels.
“We know from long experience that collaboration, sharing knowledge and ideas, is a crucial factor in stimulating innovation and encouraging improved sustainability,” said Damen Chief Commercial Officer Arnout Damen.
“Skoon Energy’s idea has quickly attracted the imagination of our industry.
“Their focus on improving the environmental performance of the shipping industry is one that is entirely aligned with our own ambitions and we’re anticipating an excellent partnership as we work together to make large scale electric ships’ propulsion a reality.”
