By installing a battery pack in the barge you´ll get an environmentally friendly, economical and not least quiet primary energy source. 

The batteries can be charged using onboard generators, onshore power or additional energy sources like solar panels and windmills. As a result, you will have a fully functional hybrid energy solution, enabling you to make a significant cut in costs related to power and generator maintenance.

Principal advantages

AKVA group feeding

  • 50 - 90% reduced generator time
  • Up to 60% reduced total diesel consumption, including barge operation 
  • Up to 60% reduction in CO2 and NOX emissions
  • If you plan to hook up your barge to onshore power, you can use a smaller cable crosssection, thus reducing connection costs

Three standard storage capacities: 128 kW, 192 kW and 256 kW.

AKVA group 120kW inverter

120 kW is enough to operate the entire barge on pure battery power. You can run the battery and generator at the same time to achieve even more power.

The battery pack has a 10 year performance warranty and 5 year product warranty.

The battery is "The Boss"

AKVA group hybrid battery pack

  • All consumers, including feed blowers, can be run on battery
  • Generators are only used to charge the battery
  • Solar and wind power can be added in addition to smart control that will enable the system to turn off generators in case, for example - the weather report is good
  • If you plan to hook up your barge to onshore power, you can use a smaller cable cross-section, thus reducing connection costs
