Super B develops and produces battery solutions which are designed to be the safest and most energy efficient available in the marine industry. Our batteries are tailored to the unique demands of hybrid propulsion and fulfil very specific requirements in terms of reliability, safety and lifetime under a dynamic user profile and very big loads. They comply with the particular UN regulations and type approvals, e.g. ABS, Lloyds and DNV.
We base our batteries on Lithium Iron Phosphate Technology (LFP), the safest lithium technology available today with superior abuse tolerance. Our technology avoids the risk of self-combustion or in extreme cases even explosions known from other lithium technologies. The batteries have advanced secure internal electronics with integrated temperature and current sensors to continuously monitor and report the state of the battery. Battery energy management reaches more than 96% efficiency, which not only saves valuable energy but also minimises self-heating of the battery systems, further increasing lifetime and safety.
By improving the conventional battery management systems and implementing the battery communication interface and PLC code for the integrators switchboard, the next step in battery integration has been realised. This provides flexible 'plug and play' solutions which are cost and time effective - delivering safe, powerful yet reliable, low maintenance results. All batteries can be interconnected and act as one big battery system - scalable configuration options are endless.
Super B has a team of experienced engineers and system integrators that will help tailor a battery solution for your specific large marine project. We can calculate all the trade-offs for you based on your usage profile, lifetime needs in your application, capacity need, initial cost and system integration. Our mutual goal is to achieve the lowest possible TCO and the best investment strategy for you as our valued customer. Super B can pre-build and pre-test the battery systems to allow easy plug and play installation on the ship. This avoids a trial and error approach on the ship itself, simplifies system integration and shortens integration time on board.
A prime example of Super B's contribution to a challenging project is the refit of the MV Tachek ferry, which has been relying on Super B batteries now for multiple years in the field, totally problem free. Other examples of successful applications are the environmentally friendly ships of iCat, the electric drive systems of Fischer Panda, the luxury performance cruiser yachts of X-Yachts and the Canal Boats of Rederij Kooij.
