Leclanché’s Navius MRS-3 Marine Rack System to be Featured at Upcoming Electric and Hybrid Marine Expo European Event

Tue Jun 13

YVERDON-LES-BAINS, Switzerland, 13 June, 2023 – The latest generation maritime battery storage system from Leclanché SA (SIX: LECN), its Navius MRS-3TM, will be featured at an upcoming major industry event later this month.


Leclanché will be an active participant in the Electric and Hybrid Marine Expo Europe Conference 2023 in RAI Amsterdam, from June 20 – 22 in booth 4038. The event is the only conference exclusively dedicated to the electrification and hybridization of marine vessels along with the associated supporting infrastructure for ports, charging, fuelling and energy supply.


Leclanché is a sponsor of the Amsterdam event. On Day 1, it will present a session on “Building the world’s largest hybrid ferries: Challenges and benefits,” which will discuss the process for planning, building and operating the world’s largest hybrid ferries with the companies involved – Brittany Ferries, Stena RoRo, Wärtsilä and Leclanché. The discussion will be moderated by Dave Gorshkov, marine electrical power and propulsion subject matter expert, maritime systems, QinetiQ (UK). Featured panelists are Arnaud Le Poulichet, director engineering and maintenance, Brittany Ferries; Dr. Torsten Büssow, managing director, electrical & power systems business, Wärtsilä; and Guillaume Clement, vice president e-marine, Leclanché Norway.


On June 21, Leclanché will participate in a session called, “The e-ferry Ellen Operational Review – battery status and operational experience after four years.” It will cover the breakthrough fully electric e-ferry Ellen, powered by Leclanché technology and launched in 2019. Ellen operates from the island of Aeroe in southern Denmark and sails a record-breaking distance between charges: 22 nautical miles, up to seven times a day. Besides discussing the e-ferry’s systems and achievements, the presentation will cover Ellen’s continued operational experience, including the battery status after four years in operation and its operations through periods of extreme cold. The presentation will provide key numbers and figures and give real-world feedback on e-ferry operations over longer routes and during cold weather.

The session will also be moderated by Dave Gorshkov. Expert panelists are Halfdan Abrahamsen, media and information manager, Ærø EnergyLab (Denmark); John Wind, power electric engineer, Danfoss Editron (Denmark); and Tunji Adebusuyi, technical manager, e-Marine, Leclanché (Switzerland).

Both events will be held in theatre 3; check the on-site conference schedule for exact times.

Leclanché is one of the world’s leading energy storage solutions companies and a major global provider of battery storage systems for maritime vessels. Its Navius MRS-3 is designed to support the needs of fully electric and hybrid marine vessel builders.
