Holland Ship Electric has awarded EST-Floattech for the delivery of the battery solution for two Hybrid Patrol vessels. These aluminium Hybrid Patrol Vessels, named POA1 and POA2, are to be used for water patrol. With this initiative, the Port of Antwerp shows its drive to become a sustainable port. The vessels will be equipped with a battery package of 273kWh each, enabling them to sail for 2.5 hours at 9 km/h exclusively on electric power. The battery packages are DNV approved and have successfully passed the FAT in our workshop in Hoofddorp, supervised by Kooiman Marine Group and Holland Ship Electric, the system integrator.

The vessels have a length of 25mtr, a beam of 5,4mtr and draught of 1,36 meter and are built by Kooiman Marine Group. The vessels also have two other power modes; full diesel propulsion or hybrid propulsion. An unique system that results in lower fuel consumption and minimal CO2 emissions. The diesel particulate filter and integrated exhaust gas treatment system also ensure that fewer harmful substances (SOx/NOx) are released.

The vessels, developed by Kooiman Engineering in Zwijndrecht, the Netherlands, will be built at Scheepswerf Gebr. Kooiman, also in Zwijndrecht, with a scheduled delivery for autumn 2020.

EST-Floattech is very honoured to be a part of this project and to contribute yet again to a sustainable energy storage solution in the maritime industry. We thank Holland Ship Electric for their trust in EST-Floattech as their ESS supplier.

Optimal safety

The energy storage system (ESS) delivered by EST-Floattech has a raft of integrated safety features. Its unique active balancing and passive safety system is applied at the module and string level. Heat is dissipated by a simple off-the-shelf aircon unit. The battery racks are a favourable option as they can easily be installed in a modular fashion.
