ABS and the Contemporary Amperex Technology Co Limited are to work together to research lithium battery propulsion for next generation vessels. The Frame Cooperation Agreement, signed at Marintec, will see ABS and CATL jointly carry out the research on the technical standards for battery-powered vessels, including key safety-related technologies such as the propulsion system, charging system, power battery compartment layout and fire control.

The project also covers research into the technical standards of lithium batteries, including various battery material properties and combustion mechanisms as well as the performance of safety system, such as monitoring and early warning of thermal diffusion. The work will support revision of the classification of lithium battery inspection guidelines and drive improvements in the standard system for lithium batteries for ships.
