Yokohama-based battery manufacturer Furukawa Battery has been certified by marine technology firm Eco Marine Power (EMP) as a supplier of batteries for use on ship and marine structures.
“We are very pleased to have been recognised by Eco Marine Power as a supplier of high quality and reliable batteries for ships and marine use,” says Kodaka, General Manager, Overseas Sales and Marketing Department at Furukawa Battery.
“Our battery technologies have been proven to be very safe and reliable over many years and we are excited that we can offer these globally in co-operation with Eco Marine Power.”
The certification process includes obtaining approval from ClassNK for each battery type, an inspection of the Furukawa Battery production centre at Imaichi Plant at Nikko, Japan, and a review of the relevant quality standards and certifications including ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.
An assessment of how Furukawa Battery recycles returned batteries as part of a sustainability review has also been included.
According to EMP, Furukawa Battery and EMP first began to co-operate in 2014 and teamed up for the Blue Star Delos Renewable Energy Project during which Furukawa Battery supplied a FC-38-12 battery pack for evaluation on-board the high speed ferry.
The certification has since extended to include Furukawa Battery’s hybrid valve regulated lead acid (VRLA) UltraBattery and Furukawa Cycle Power (FCP) batteries.
“For many energy storage solutions for ships and marine applications the key is to keep things simple, safe and reliable,” notes Greg Atkinson, chief technology officer at EMP.
“The battery technologies that we have certified from Furukawa Battery allow us to offer energy storage solutions that are easy to install, do not require complicated cooling or control systems and are cost effective.”
