Leclanché batteries to power EV fast-charging partnership

Switzerland-based energy storage firm Leclanché is teaming up with a Dutch company on a pilot batteries project aimed at creating a network of energy-efficient electric vehicle (EV) fast charging stations across Europe.

Leclanché said it will initially develop a battery storage system “using large-format lithium-ion batteries” at two unnamed locations for Fastned— which already operates 63 fast charging EV stations it has built in the Netherlands.

Amsterdam no dope when it comes to battery recycling

The Netherlands collected 87,000 kilograms (87 tonnes) of mainly lithium-ion and Nickel Metal Hydride electric bicycle batteries last year.

The collection, recycling, treatment and disposal of batteries and accumulators are ruled at European level by Directive 2006/66/EC, also known as the battery directive.

GDF Suez offshore gas platform

Dutch critical power supplier DBR is to deliver a gas genset to GDF Suez E&P Nederland’s offshore gas platform E17a-A located in the North Sea.

The 275kVA genset comprises of a gas powered MAN engine and a Leroy Somer air-to-air cooled generator. The system is designed to operate for 1,200 hours between maintenance intervals, according to DBR.

Due to limited space on the manned gas platform, DBR customised the genset design. “By placing the air cooling unit outside the engine room and reducing heavy components to a minimum we have come up with an efficient design that meets our client’s requirements,” said DBR sales manager Henri Hafkamp. The genset uses a single instead of a double frame and is manufactured with robust components to decrease risks of vibration.

The delivery is set for the end of 2014.

DBR recently struck a deal to supply emergency/harbour diesel gensets for six new pipelaying vessels from IHC Merwede.

GDF Suez E&P Nederland has 34 gas producing platforms and an annual gas production of 6 billion Nm3.
