SEAQ® ENERGY STORAGE SYSTEM

Store excess energy and use it later to reduce fuel consumption and improve operational performance.

SeaQ® ESS is a modular solution applicable for all vessels in the maritime and offshore industry, making operations at sea safer and more efficient. The ESS system is suitable for both new build and refits, and it can be combined with different types of energy sources, whether it is gas, dual-fuel, or diesel engines.

SEAQ® BATTERY ON BOARD

SeaQ® BOB is a containerized ESS solution containing batteries, drive and all supporting systems for battery operations. All this is placed in a 20-foot hc container is easily transportable and can be installed anywhere in the world, making it the most flexible retrofit solution on the market.

How does it work

SeaQ® BOB stores excess energy available in the vessel and/-or energy from shore connections and use it later to reduce fuels consumption and optimize the performance of your vessel. The engines will work more optimized in both number of engines online and how they are loaded, -by draining the battery instead of the engines when possible.

The system can be used as a spinning reserve, enhance dynamic response, peak shavings, and strategic loading where the operating point of the gensets is optimized, or for battery only operations with zero-emission.

The BOB consists of the following main products:

- Energy Storage (batteries)

- Energy Storage Inverter (drive)

- Filter and/or transformer

- Cooling System

- Energy Management System (EMS)

Why SeaQ® BOB

- Decreases the vessel’s carbon footprint with unique hybrid technology

- Prepares the fleet for a green future

- Improves vessel safety and security

- ESS system installed in a 20 foot hc container

- The most flexible retrofit solution in the market

- Standard interface makes a smooth implementation on-board

- Vard Electro Global Services 24/7
