With BlueVault , Siemens is providing an energy storage solution for offshore oil and gas assets even in harsh environments that helps ensure a reliable power supply with minimum carbon dioxide emissions. The lithium-ion battery-based solution is suitable for both all-electric and hybrid energy-storage applications. The first BlueVault is anticipated to be delivered in summer 2018 and represents a milestone for Siemens on its road towards a low-emissions platform. The next milestone for the company will be the opening of its fully robotized and digitalized plant in Norway, which will manufacture energy-storage technologies for both marine and offshore oil and gas applications.
To develop its battery storage solutions – which are also suitable for offshore wind farms – the company is drawing on the expertise it has gained in offshore operating environments and from the manufacture of its diesel-electric propulsion system BlueDrive PlusC and car ferry Ampere . The company developed this world-first electric car ferry in collaboration with Fjellstrand shipyard and shipping company Norled .
