Floating battery dock to charge Norwegian boats

Brødrene Aa Power Dock The Power Dock is being built using 1000m2 of Diab’s Divinycell H100

A 2.4MWh battery pack in a floating dock is being built in Norway to power Brødrene Aa’s tourist catamarans.

The 40m long and 5m wide power dock, currently being designed in glass fibre composite by Brødrene Aa, is being built using 1000m2 of Diab’s Divinycell H100 and will feature the battery pack and a 40m3 diesel tank, as well as a 20m3 tank into which waste water can be emptied.

The power dock was created in response to Brødrene Aa’s need for its entirely battery-powered 42m long Future of the Fjords vessel to efficiently charge in between operating the 18 nautical miles between the villages Flåm and Gudvangen.

With a battery capacity of 1,900kWh, Future of the Fjords is built using lightweight carbon-fibre composite materials and is powered by two 450kW electric motors.

Divinycell H is compatible with most wet resin systems and its low thermal conductivity and high thermal stability makes it especially suitable as insulation at very low temperatures.
