The partners of the Motorways of the Sea CEF Action, “Sea Li-ion” have come together to map out innovative ideas and sustainable solutions to boost electrification of the maritime sector using lithium-ion batteries on vessels. Today, many shipowners are considering battery power for propulsion. However, what is holding them back is the availability of shore-side power, the slow speed of charging and the capacity for it.
As partners of “Sea Li-ion”, we are stepping up to the challenge to address the knowledge gaps that still remain when it comes to battery use for ship propulsion. We will fill those gaps with facts, figures, and solutions to ensure that the electric future that we all dream about can become a reality.
The objective of the project is to make maritime transport more environmentally friendly, more energy efficient, and more able to adapt and compete in good economic times and in bad, while maintaining the highest safety standards. The actions represent a necessary step for the realization of the project, as it will allow all project partners to assess the risks and opportunities of a new technology.
