Akasol to launch new battery system

ADVERTISEMENT

German-based Akasol will present a world premiere of its new compact, modular lithium-ion battery system, AKASystem OEM, at the Electric & Hybrid Marine World Expo in June.

This system is well-suited for marine applications such as yachts because engineers have integrated standardised PHEV (plug-in hybrid electric vehicle) modules from large battery manufacturers to enable them to meet the demanding requirements of commercial vehicle drives.

The new battery storage system is interchangeable and can be connected in all customer-specific variations.
