The Scandlines zero-emission ferry project, announced in November 2021 and which will result in the world's largest electric-powered hybrid ferry, will run on an advanced 10 MWh lithium-ion battery energy storage system (BESS) from Leclanché.

Leclanché SA is one of the world's leading energy storage solutions companies and a pioneering provider of lithium-ion battery powered marine battery systems for electric and hybrid maritime vessels.

It joins a roster of renown companies selected to provide critical components, systems, and expertise to the Puttgarten Rødby 2024 or PR24 vessel including Norway's Kongsberg Maritime and Norwegian Electric Systems (NES).

The ferry was designed by LMG Marin AS, Norway, and will be constructed at Cemre Shipyard in Turkey.


In addition, it builds modules on its state-of-the-art automated assembly line, in Yverdon, Switzerland. Leclanché's Marine Rack System (MRS) helps vessel owners and operators to meet or even surpass international marine regulations for SOx and NOx emissions.

"Our team was highly impressed with Leclanché's technology and real-life maritime industry experience," said Christian Thiemer, Technical Superintendent, Scandlines. "Some of the critical factors impacting our selection included Leclanché's liquid-cooled battery architecture and well as the energy density of its cells. Together, in collaboration with our PR24 team of experienced providers, we are confident that our freight ferry will set the standard for powerful, sustainable and safe marine technology."

Anil Srivastava, CEO of Leclanché, said: "We are extremely gratified with our selection by Scandlines and NES as the critical battery system provider for the prestigious Puttgarden Rødby 2024 hybrid freight ferry project.
