The maritime world is going electric – be a part the journey
A major transformation
The maritime world is becoming electrified and the shift is happening fast. The IMO and the EU have high ambitions and by 2050, all shipping will be have to be decarbonized. That means, that in just three decades, we will go from fossil fuel dependency to becoming completely emission-free.
The international market for battery operation of maritime applications has matured in the past year and strong market growth is expected in the coming years, partly due to regulatory requirements but also a general desire to move from fossil-based fuels to emission-free solutions.
Echandia is one of the major players in this market, with a unique and world-leading product and a prime position internationally. Since 2018, Echandia has delivered energy storage solutions for heavy-duty industrial solutions, primarily for maritime applications. Echandia’s customers are global shipyards, system integrators and shipowners. Echandia offers durable, robust and safe battery systems that are appreciated by the market.
Apart from high-power battery systems, the upcoming product line includes fuel cell systems that will be an important component in the transition to zero emissions for larger vessels.
