New partnership between Echandia Marine AB and Landmark Power Holding (LMPH)
- 24 July 2023
Swedish LTO battery systems expert Echandia Marine AB and Landmark Power Holding (LMPH) have formed a new partnership to develop hybrid battery energy storage systems in the UK.
We are pleased to announce the exclusive collaboration between Echandia and LMPH to develop, build and operate new land-based hybrid battery energy storage systems in the UK.
Echandia provides zero-emission solutions for heavy-duty applications, by delivering the market-leading LTO battery systems, mainly to the maritime market including passenger vessels, ferries, energy and offshore, navy, and tug- and workboats.
The LTO battery technology is proprietary and has a superior performance and durability to graphite based Lithium-Ion technologies and is demonstrated also to be a safer solution for energy storage.
As the first milestone in our partnership LMPH intends to integrate the technology on its FLEXPOWER PLUS® site in Peterlee, County Durham, where the batteries will be charged using on-site generation and discharged as and when required.
The parties are already in discussions with packaging engineering companies regarding the design and manufacture of the onshore version of the LTO battery system.
“I am excited about our collaboration with Landmark. They are pioneers in net zero dispatchable power generation with their cutting-edge solutions. This partnership also marks Echandia’s initial entry into land applications, and I am confident that our safe and long-lasting battery systems will ensure a prosperous onshore business venture”
Fredrik Hellström, CEO, Echandia Marin AB.
”I am very enthusiastic about our partnership with Echandia. They are the market leader in LTO batteries, and we firmly believe this technology represents the future in battery energy storage. This more efficient, durable, and safe technology perfectly complements our FLEXPOWER PLUS® energy solutions and aligns with LMPH’s circular economy approach to energy.”
Mick Avison, Founder and Managing Director, Landmark Power Holdings
