Fast charging


Technology Description

Fast charging equipment is necessary to recharge the batteries of electric ships. Chargers can be constituted by a plug, typically with automated connection, or by a wireless device.
Battery-electric ferries are mainly recharged on each docking.
Due to the high power needed (up to several MW), an active cooling system will typically be used for the cable and connector (on the port side and on the vessel side). Available technical solutions include water cooling, air cooling, other fluid cooling or super conductive cables.

Relevance for Net Zero

Necessary to recharge electric ships, which due to the low energy density and range will likely find application only in short-distance routes.
