Echandia Wins Record Order

Echandia has secured an order for the delivery of battery systems to a Northern European ferry operator. The order involves converting two RoPax ferries to plug-in hybrid ferries, where electricity will contribute about  80 per cent of the energy needed for a crossing. The order is Echandia’s largest to date, both in terms of value and system size. Delivery is planned for the second half of 2025.

Echandia’s advanced battery systems are installed to significantly reduce both fossil fuel emissions and fuel costs. The battery systems are designed to meet the customer’s requirement for a 10-year lifespan, which Echandia’s systems can easily achieve. The main reasons Echandia’s battery systems were chosen for this prestigious project are their long lifespan, high safety, and the fact that they require roughly half the installation space compared to other systems.

“We are seeing a clear trend towards more and larger orders for converting ferries from fossil fuel to electric propulsion. This order is our largest to date and the result of focused work on both our products and partnerships within the maritime sector. This also solidifies that we are now seriously considered one of the leading suppliers in maritime electrification. An important milestone for Echandia”, says Fredrik Hellström, CEO of Echandia.

This contract clearly signals the company’s position as an established and reliable supplier in the market, even for very large projects. Echandia’s safe and robust battery systems, with the longest lifespan on the market, provide the company with an attractive position in the rapidly growing market for maritime battery systems.
