Navitas adds “customised” lithium cell line for US military

US lithium battery storage company Navitas Systems has installed a new automated cells production line at its Michigan facility to “optimise custom cell manufacturing” for the country’s military.

Navitas said it is working with the aerospace and defence company Lockheed Martin to bring “higher-performing” lithium products to the US Navy— because “the US military has had limited battery options” as many lithium cell suppliers are based in “adversary countries”.

Lithium anodes born in the USA?

The founder of a lithium battery component testing laboratory believes graphitic anode manufacture could be brought to the USA, obviating the need to buy the material from China and bolstering US battery manufacturing industry.

Ed Buiel, founder of Coulometrics told the Florida battery seminar that from his evaluations, most natural graphites were essentially the same but the differences came in purification.

Corvus Energy to deliver lithium polymer battery ESS to hybrid ferry

Thu, 11/27/2014 - 16:52 -- Laura Varriale
Corvus Energy

Battery storage maker Corvus Energy has been contracted to supply an energy storage system (ESS) to Norwegian Fjord1’s hybrid ferry Fannefjord.

The ESS comprises of 63 lithium polymer batteries with a capacity of 410kWh.

The ESS will be integrated with the existing Siemens drive system and be powered by two liquefied natural gas (LNG) generators.

According to Corvus Energy, the conversion of the LNG vessel to a battery hybrid will reduce methane slips and deliver further reduced greenhouse gas emissions, fuel efficiency and maintenance costs. The ferry currently features one diesel engine and two LNG-fuelled main engines.

The 123m Fannefjord has a capacity of 390 passengers and 125 cars.

Canadian-based Corvus Energy claimed that the ferry will be the world’s first LNG battery ferry on commercial routes.

The company recently announced that that its ESS has successfully achieved reductions in bunker consumption during a three-month trial at a hybrid passenger ferry operated by Norled/AS in Norway.

“This trial proves the Corvus energy storage product is an effective solution for modernisation of existing vessels, extending their usable lifespan and reducing costs for the operators,” said Sean Puchalski, vice president for business development at Corvus Energy.
