Requirements on certification and safety analysis of Li-ion battery systems have been subject to a major change in marine during the past two years. DNV-GL has been a forerunner in this activity, and some flag authorities have published their own requirements and test procedures. Leclanché, as a battery supplier of E-Ferry, World’s largest all-electric ferry that is powered by a 4.3 MWh Li-ion battery, has recently introduced a product that complies with the latest requirements of DNV-GL. The presentation will focus on design, safety analysis and testing of E-Ferry’s battery system.
