Hyper powered vessel battery charging system (HYPOBATT)

The transport sector is responsible for about 23% of CO2 emissions and is thus a significant source of climate-damaging greenhouse gases. After road and air transport, a significant amount of global CO2 emissions falls on shipping. On the way to a climate-friendly future, it is therefore crucial to find ways to reduce these emissions. The European project HYPOBATT (Hyper powered vessel battery charging system) has brought together 18 key players from the European maritime sector. The aim is to develop a fast charging system for ships and demonstrate it at selected locations. Initially, the ferry service between the North German ports of Norddeich and Norderney will be electrified. For this purpose, HYPOBATT will supply a modular, fast and simple multi-megawatt charging system that will enable the ships to be connected to the charging station and charged within a very short time after docking. Due to the intended modularity of the port-side charging stations, electrified port vehicles should also make use of this infrastructure in further steps, thus reducing the overall CO2 balance of a port. Further goals of the project are the standardization of the fast charging system for ferries as well as the development of new business models for battery-powered boats, which should make electric ferry operations safer, faster and more sustainable at other locations in the future. THI has taken over the management of the dissemination and communication activities within the project. In addition to general public relations, social media channels are used and lectures and workshops are organized.

Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2023 “Charging of Damen vessels”

Speaker: Peter Rampen - DAMEN / Netherlands

Time: 18:00 (6 p.m.)

Damen has already some experience of developing and realizing charging systems for fully electric operating vessels. The solutions are developed dedicated for specific ship types. For the next step in electrification of shipping “charging as a service” have to be available on all locations that the ships are operating. This requires standard charging solution for interoperability. The (Megawatt) charging standards for automotive are a promising basis for such a maritime charging standard. However implementing these standards comes with challenges.
