Energy Storage System (ESS)

Høglund Energy Storage Systems (ESS) help drive vessels towards greater efficiency, by significantly reducing operational and maintenance costs

It is well documented that vessels operating with an ESS can achieve significant OPEX savings compared to vessels without one, with up to a 40% reduction in fuel costs.

The greatest saving is when the ESS operates as a spinning reserve. There are also large savings in other operating modes. Høglund’s long and successful experience with Power Management Systems has helped develop a robust and reliable Energy Management System (EMS) which manages the battery usage in conjunction with the vessel’s generators. The operational modes of the ESS can be controlled automatically by the embedded EMS or by the operator.
