Hanwha Aerospace and its subsidiary, Hanwha Ocean, have secured megawatt-hour-class energy storage system (ESS) technology for large vessels, including LNG carriers and container ships. This collaboration represents a step forward in emissions-reduction technology for the rapidly growing eco-friendly shipping market.

When implemented on ships, ESS can create a hybrid system that optimizes the ship’s energy load and levels out peak energy use. This combination provides significant improvements in fuel efficiency while reducing emissions. Hanwha Aerospace has expanded its ESS technology for small to medium-sized ships to develop similar technology for larger ships. Together with Hanwha’s ocean experience in shipbuilding and eco-friendly ship technology, these joint company efforts are accelerating the development of the eco-friendly vessel value chain.

“The successful completion of this project is the result of the synergy generated by the industry-leading expertise and experience of both companies,” said Jong Kyu Kang, Head of Hanwha Ocean R&D Institute. “With this success, we will continue to provide advanced eco-friendly and digital solutions to ship owners with our state-of-the-art technologies.”

Hanwha Aerospace’s advanced ESS technology, which uses lithium-ion batteries, features a container-type packaging design that integrates the control system, effectively reducing the size of the ESS and maximizing space utilization. Does To enhance safety, the system is equipped with an automatic fire extinguishing function for rapid detection and extinguishing of fires.

“The packaging and protection technology of ESS, which is essential for global decarbonization, is important not only in the defense sector but also in the aviation and marine industries,” said Seung Hak Moon, Head of E-Propulsion Business Group at Hanwha Aerospace. “We are taking a holistic approach to maximize synergies through collaboration between associates, constantly keeping the environment at the focus of all our activities.”
