Lehmann Marine’s Cobra battery system has received type approval from class society RINA, adding to earlier certification from DNV.
This underscores the highest safety standard for the wide range of marine applications for the battery system, the company said.
”We are extremely pleased with the RINA type approval and the renewed confirmation from a renowned classification society that our proven Cobra product meets all safety requirements,“ said Godehard Gauf, Lehmann Marine Managing Director.
Cobra has a compact, scalable design and its lithium ferro phosphate (LFP) technology is claimed to be safer and a more environmentally friendly alternative to the cobalt-based cell technologies used thus far.
The cell technology rules out the risk of fire, for example in the event of a short circuit or overheating. Another advantage is that cobalt is not used as a raw material, which is viewed very critically from an environmental and socio-political viewpoint.
In addition, this battery cell is almost completely recyclable.
Lehmann said that Cobra was attractively priced, as it is freely scalable from a few kWh to several MWh, due to the modular design – a battery rack can be equipped with up to eight battery modules and offers a capacity of 94 kWh per rack.
