Torqeedo GmbH have announced a new battery option for their Deep Blue series of powerful electric drives: Deep Blue Battery 80. The new battery leverages lithium iron phosphate (LFP) chemistry and delivers 80kWh of energy storage, twice the capacity of the previous generation of Deep Blue batteries.
Fabian Bez, CEO of Torqeedo, commented: ‘The new Deep Blue Battery 80 doubles the range and runtime for Deep Blue systems. It’s a game-changer for electric mobility on the water. This new battery marks one important step in our new strategy to make Torqeedo even more customer-centric by providing optimised products for specific market segments.’
The new battery’s state-of-the-art cell-to-pack architecture is an advanced approach to battery assembly in which individual battery cells are directly integrated into a pack without the need for intermediate modules or components. This advanced construction offsets the lower energy density of LFP batteries and enables a more compact footprint that is easier to install in many boats.
