Rolls-Royce has launched a new lith- ium-ion-based energy storage system to provide shipowners with a complete clean, safe and cost-ef? cient system that includes intelligent power control. The company has been delivering energy storage systems since 2010, however the actual energy storage units were previ- ously supplied by an external party and the company is now offering its SAVe
Energy system, a cost-competitive, high- ly ef? cient and liquid cooled battery sys- tem with a modular design that enables the product to scale according to energy and power requirements. SAVe Energy complies with international legislation and regulations for low- and zero-emis- sion propulsion systems.
The development of the system was partly funded by the Norwegian Re- search Council of Norway’s ENERGIX program. Three shipowners, Color Line,

SAVe Energy is delivered from the
Rolls-Royce Power Electric site in Ber- gen, Norway as part of the company’s offering of complete ship systems. The potential deployment of the patent- pending SAVe Energy system in 2019 is estimated to be in the 10-18 MWh range.
SAVe Energy can be applied to several
