Spacious cabin realized by the minimum battery space

The electrification of marine vessels is progressing so as to prevent global warming. Because of rapid-charging performance, SCiB™ reduces the space required for batteries, making it possible to secure wide cabin space.

Realizing efficient operations of electric ferries with a small capacity of battery

Ferryboats using SCiB™ can be charged during a short port stop to cover the electricity required for a round trip. This saves the need to install a large battery capacity that allows a ferryboat to continue traveling for a whole day, making it possible to secure wide cabin space. In addition, SCiB™, which features long life and high reliability, realizes safe and comfortable cruising even in an isolated maritime environment.

[Ferryboat with conventional lithium ion batteries] A large capacity of battery is required to continue traveling for a whole day. | [Ferryboat with SCiB™] Only a small capacity of battery is required for a round trip (Safe maritime travel, Spacious cabin, Long life)

SCiB™ lithium-ion battery modules and related system components are the first in Japan to win approval from Nippon Kaiji Kyokai (ClassNK) for use in marine vessels.
