A Nidec-brand battery system has been launched. Designed for large and medium-sized boat propulsion, these systems enabled the complete elimination of polluting emissions at sea and in all bodies of water throughout the world.

Technological features and safety

Nidec ASI was able to develop this new solution to complete the range of on-board energy storage products on offer thanks to the experience gained over the years with many battery energy storage solutions installed all over the world. These batteries differ from their previous endeavours in the number of technological features including the "Single Large String", a large module which is better suited to making up large battery packs and significantly simplifying system set-up. This will also make it possible to reduce the number of modules in each battery pack and the number of DC/DC & DC/AC converters, which will simplify wiring and installation on different types of vessels and facilitate the use of hybrid propulsion systems. Nidec Asi solution also focuses on safety. The batteries are fitted with control systems on each individual cell and detectors to quickly identify any signs of degeneration.
