The two companies secured MWh-class ESS technology that can be implemented in large vessels such as LNG carriers and container ships.
Hanwha Aerospace and Hanwha Ocean, a subsidiary of Hanwha Aerospace, are collaborating to develop and enhance energy storage system (ESS) technology designed to reduce carbon emissions in the ship market. The two companies secured MWh-class ESS technology that can be implemented in large vessels such as LNG carriers and container ships.
Hanwha's ESS technology, using lithium-ion battery, features a container-type packaging that reduces the overall size of the ESS by consolidating the control system and is equipped with an automatic fire extinguishing feature.
"The packaging and safety technology of ESS, essential for global decarbonization, is critical not only in the defense sector but also in the aviation and maritime industries," said Seunghak Moon, Head of E-Propulsion Business Group at Hanwha Aerospace. "We're taking a holistic approach to maximize synergy through collaboration among affiliates, consistently placing the environment at the focus of all our activities."
Applying a hybrid power system that combines a conventional internal combustion engine with the ESS to ships improves fuel efficiency and reduces pollutant emissions.
"The successful completion of this project is a result of big synergy effect created by expertise and experience from both companies," said, Joong-Kyoo Kang, Head of Hanwha Ocean R&D Institute. "With this success, we will continue to deliver advanced eco-friendly and digital solutions to ship-owners with our cutting-edge technologies."
