ABB Develops Containerized Energy Storage System (ESS) For Vessels

ABB has built a containerized energy storage system (ESS) that integrates sustainable battery power for existing ships as a response to the robust demand for present-day technologies that allow low and zero-emission vessel operations.

The entire solution of the plug-in lets shipowners set up sustainable marine energy storage at scale, housed in a standard 20-foot high-cube ISO container and available to combine with the vessel’s main power distribution system. All batteries, converters, transformer, controls, cooling and auxiliary equipment come preassembled in the self-contained unit for plug-and-play use.

Jyri Jusslin, Head of Service, ABB Marine & Ports, noted: “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”

The Containerized ESS solution is relevant for integration onboard a wide range of ships.

“For instance, offshore support vessels would especially benefit from a self-contained solution, as the electrical room space on board is especially limited,” ABB said, noting the adaptable and cost-effective energy storage system technology would also be relevant to containerships, ferries, drillships and other vessel types.

Jusslin mentioned, “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.”

ABB further added that the Containerized ESS comes up with one of the highest energy densities in the market within a 20-foot container, offering a standardized installation, which sums up to lower costs and faster delivery.

The preassembled, factory-tested devices and cabling make the Containerized ESS solution simple to combine with all vessel subsystems. It is also underpinned by the ABB Ability Marine Remote Diagnostics System, which offers constant monitoring for preventive maintenance and fast and easy system repair.
