Marine batteries play an important role in the operations of vessels and their various auxiliary systems. They support emergency backup, lighting and engine starting. They help reduce fuel consumption and emissions, while reducing maintenance needs and costs.
For the marine industry, Saft delivers fully integrated and turnkey battery systems backed by extensive technical support. These solutions are based on decades of experience in nickel and lithium-ion technology, making Saft the ideal partner to deliver clean transport power today and into the future.
The marine industry has to adapt quickly to meet international environmental regulations on NOX, SOX and CO2 emissions. This includes a need for new battery designs that are high-performance and economical.
Using advanced lithium-ion (Li-ion) technology, Saft provides lightweight battery systems for electric propulsion and auxiliary systems for ships, tugboats, workboats, offshore support vessels, ferries, dredgers, cargo vessels and large ocean cruise-liners. With Li-ion technology, the marine industry can significantly improve fuel efficiency and cut carbon dioxide emissions.
Batteries Are Not Perfect
Although the majority of Marine Batteries Malta have a long life, they will still degrade over time. The key to minimizing this decline is giving them a full charge every day. This can extend their lifespan and keep them working at optimal performance.
When looking for a marine battery, it is important to make sure that the size you choose is right for your boat. It is not uncommon to find group sizes that are designed for watercraft applications, but they do not work well in marine situations. This is why it is best to use a Group 27 deep-cycle battery or one that is specifically labeled for marine uses.
The BCI or Battery Council International created a battery size chart to standardize the industry and make it easier for consumers to find the product they need. This chart identifies the number of amp hours a battery can hold in a single discharge cycle.
This is important to know because it can prevent the need to replace a battery prematurely. A battery that has a higher amp hour rating can handle more power than a lower value, which will keep your boat running longer and help you save money in the long run.
AGM Marine Battery – E3 Lithium
AGM batteries are ideal for most marine applications because they provide high reliability and a long lifespan. They are safe, durable and environmentally friendly. They do not contain heavy metals and rare earths, which are typically found in lead-acid batteries.
They also offer a double redundancy battery management system that ensures years of trouble-free power delivery. This system protects the battery from misuse or mishandling, deep discharge and unsuitable charge voltage, to maintain a long service life.
