The battery saves electrical energy for later. Visiting boats in the marina may tap renewable energy from the battery round the clock.
The battery energy storage system arrived mid-December to Samsø. Partner Lithium Balance delivered the battery after a so-called factory acceptance test. A larger, steel cabin houses three battery cabinets. The cabin is hidden inside a maritime style, wooden building on the pier.
The floor space of the cabin is 8 square metres with 2.3 metres from floor to ceiling. A steel frame makes the cabin portable. Inside insulation and three layers of gypsum protect against fire. An air-conditioner keeps the temperature in a narrow range around 20 ⁰C and free from moisture and salt — as far as possible in the marina environment. A future photovoltaic plant will supply the battery. Boats can then use solar energy even after sunset
