The second project concerns the Grimaldi Green 5th Generation (GG5G) ships. Grimaldi is one of the world's largest roll-on / roll-off (RoRo) and roll-on / roll-off passenger (Ro-Pax) vessels operators. The Kongsberg hybrid drive system includes Leclanche's wave generators, frequency drives, power management systems and battery systems. The GG5G will be the first of the new Hybrid RoRo series of fossil-fueled marine fuels, while the batteries in the harbor provide power and peak load coverage.
The new partnership with KONGSBERG is based on Leclanché's strategy of moving from a clean cell manufacturer to a vertically integrated system supplier and emerging market target, such as merchandising and fleet transport. Leclanché has invested early in the development of the DNV-GL certified marine battery system and is the first battery supplier to fully comply with the current stringent regulations in 2015. DNV GL is an internationally accredited body for registration and certification of ships based in Høvik, Norway.
Froden Adventure, EVP's supply chain Kongsberg Maritime, said: "Leclanche's ability to cover the whole chain of value from the development and production of lithium cells in Europe to complete the certified marine battery system combines with its own hybrid energy technology as one source of supplier electrification solutions that will enable lower operating costs and environmental sustainability for all types of ships. "
