Less fuel consumption, sailing quiet more often and less generator maintenance? It's possible! Battery Technology is an intelligent combination of technology and software that efficiently saves any excess in produced energy on a mega yacht and distributes saved energy on peak hours. De Keizer sees great advantage in the application of Battery Technology, which is why we have developed the DekaSmartGrid.
DekaSmartGrid ensures that the generators are used more efficiently and that any electric surplus is stored in batteries that can be addressed immediately during a shortage. As a result, it is possible to prevent running a second generator, which saves more than just fuel consumption. As the generators will run less often, they will suffer less from soot deposition. Battery Technology benefits the performance and lifetime of the generators while saving on fuel, all at the same time.
This form of peak shaving and load leveling is not the only advantage of battery technology. It’s even possible to propel your yacht with nothing but the energy stored in the battery bank, increasing the amount of times you can enjoy silent sailing. As battery banks take up less space then generators and you will need less of the latter, you also have more flexibility to divide the space in your engine room freely.
Facts & figures:
- Battery Technology allows you to reduce the amount of generators by 30%, freeing up valuable space in the engine room.
- Our battery safety system cuts off the battery output at 80% discharged before it can harm the battery. The result is a far longer life for your batteries.
- Saves on average 1100 generator starts per year, prolonging generator life by 8 % and reducing fuel intake by 22.000 litre per year!
