Plan B Energy Storage (PBES) said it has secured the energy storage supply contract for the two largest battery-powered ferries in the world. Each of the two Scandlines Helsingborg-Helsingör ferries will have 4.16 MWh batteries to provide power for primary propulsion. 

 
The fully electric ferries will carry their part of more than 7.4 million passengers and 1.9 million vehicles annually with zero emissions. INEA, the EU’s executive agency for innovation and network, supports the SEK 300 million project with SEK 120 million
 
The energy storage system, designed by PBES with a proprietary liquid cooling system that provides a higher level of safety to marine customers, is part of ABB’s modernization package, which also includes energy storage control system and Onboard DC Grid technology. The thermal management system constantly maintains optimal internal temperatures to maximize lifespan of the battery. 
 
PBES energy storage systems are designed to power hybrid and full electric commercial marine applications. These energy storage systems are used in ferries, offshore supply vessels, wind farm support vessels, tugboats, port equipment and yachts.
