WORKSHOP – AENEAS – innovAtive ENErgy storage systems onboArd vesselS

Next October 6, the first Stakeholder workshop of the European AENEAS project will be held, financed by the European program HORIZON EUROPE

Which will take place in Valencia, Spain, in which the latest developments and advances achieved will be presented, as well as the challenges and results that are intended to be achieved with the project. Within the project, the Soermar Foundation participates as a partner along with one of its shipyards, Construcciones N.P. Freire.

AENEAS will provide solutions to improve overall energy efficiency and drastically lower energy consumption of waterborne transport vessels, founded upon innovative electric energy storage, which is safe and cost competitiveness compared to traditional batteries. To achieve this, AENEAS will develop three electrical Energy Storage Solutions (ESS) for waterborne transport, which are advanced beyond the traditional battery systems including: 

  • Solid-state batteries (SSB) for constant load waterborne transport applications. 
  • Supercapacitors (SC) for water-borne transport applications for shaving of power peak demands and peaks during loading.  
  • Hybrid system, which combines SSB and SC for waterborne transport applications requiring high energy and power density energy storage solutions.  

The AENEAS consortium unites all the necessary expertise for developing the three innovative electric Energy Storage Solutions (ESS) and implementing it in the industry. FLANDERS MAKE, ABEE, CEA, SIEMENS and I2M as leading experts in designing and developing energy storage and power systems. GRIMALDI, INLAND SHIPPING, FREIRE SHIPYARD and SOERMAR as end users that will implement the new technology. VAASAN YLIOPISTO, ARISTOTELIO PANEPISTIMIO THESSALONIKIS and ISSNOVA as experts in research and technological transfer in the fields of battery technology and power electronics converters. Finally, FORMARE and FUNDACION VALENCIA PORT as service provider for the project management and the dissemination & exploitation strategy, focused on making sure that the key messages reach the relevant target groups.
