Super B receives ABS Type Approval

Super B has received American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) Type Approval for its intelligent lithium traction batteries and battery communication interface (BCI). This certification means that the batteries are faster approved for acceptance on ABS-classed vessels and suitable for marine- and offshore applications, as well as for power supply/power distribution.

“We are proud that our Super B lithium batteries are recognized with ABS Type Approval, further supporting our goal to continue to provide the marine industry with safe, reliable and powerful energy solutions,” says Marc Borgers, CTO at Super B. “The marine market is an important sector for Super B. This designation from ABS, along with our other international certifications, is a testament to our commitment to uphold the highest-quality standards for our partners. Our global maritime partners already emphasized that with this certification they can even more rely on the safe and sophisticated lithium batteries we deliver.”

Super B develops and produces safe and reliable lithium batteries. An integrated BMS (Battery Management System) controls the electrical distribution within the battery and protects the battery against over- or under voltage conditions as well as excessive current and temperatures. The batteries can be interconnected and act as one big battery system. Scalable configuration options are endless. The ABS Type approval provides additional assurance of using Super B lithium batteries in challenging marine- and offshore environments.

ABS is a leading international classification organization devoted to promoting the security of life, property and the marine environment through the development and verification of standards for the design, construction and operational maintenance of marine-related facilities.
