American Battery Solutions Inc. (ABS) in Lake Orion, designer, developer, and manufacturer of advanced battery technology, is rolling out the Proliance Intelligent Battery Series for the expanding electric boat market.
The Proliance Intelligent Battery Series includes several products, including 350-volt and 650-volt systems with energy capacity of 50 or 100 kilowatt-hours with capability of connecting batteries in parallel to scale to over 400 kilowatt-hour applications.
The modular approach enables the electrification of the entire portfolio of recreational vessels of various sizes.
“Our advances in lithium-ion battery technology will enable marine manufacturers to move more rapidly to develop and introduce high-performing, stylish, sustainable and affordable electric-powered boats to help grow the recreational boating market,” says Ivan Menjak, vice president of business development at ABS.
“The Proliance offers fully integrated thermal and battery management systems in an IP69K-sealed environment to protect against water and debris, advanced monitoring and diagnostics capabilities, all alongside capabilities that allow easy interface with CCS fast chargers, enabling the robust marine performance recreational boaters expect and value most.”
ABS also entered into a five-year agreement with Forza X1, Inc., the wholly owned subsidiary of Twin Vee Power Cats, Co. to supply T350-50 high-powered lithium-ion batteries that will power Forza X1’s novel FX1 electric boat. Battery design and production are underway at ABS’ facility in Springboro, Ohio, with the first product deliveries on track for summer 2022.
All ABS high-voltage batteries are designed, tested, and manufactured to the latest standards and specifications for marine, industrial, truck, and automotive applications, making them reliable sources of energy for demanding marine applications. ABS lithium-ion solutions offer a high energy density along with zero maintenance and long life, according to the company.
