Crystal Lake, Ill. – July 5, 2017 – Torqeedo has made state-of-the-art automotive battery technology available for boats by offering BMW i high-capacity batteries via a recently signed supplier agreement. The first boats equipped with BMW i batteries are already in operation or are close to completion, including motor boats, sailing yachts and commercial marine applications, such as water taxis.
The BMW i3 battery has been adapted to work flawlessly with Deep Blue, Torqeedo’s most powerful solution for inboard, outboard and hybrid systems up to 160 HP. The durable high-capacity batteries from industrial production offer the highest energy density currently available in boating – at a lower cost per watt hour than ever before.
The fully automated battery production at BMW in Dingolfing has set the standard in high-precision and extremely robust battery modules. This design is ideal for boat applications which may require superior shock resistance. The prismatic cell design allows efficient cooling, a compact size and even temperature distribution within the battery – with an extremely rugged structure protecting the cells. An optional, progressive cooling system guarantees maximum performance and a long service life even in high ambient and water temperatures.
“BMW i batteries are a model of exceptional reliability and performance in electric mobility. They allow us to deliver cutting-edge electric propulsion and integrated energy management for both recreational and commercial applications,” states Christoph Ballin, Co-Founder and CEO of Torqeedo.
“The selection of BMW i high-capacity energy storage for Torqeedo’s Deep Blue drive system is further proof that performance, innovation and sustainability are not mutually exclusive,” says Alexander Kotouc, Head of Product Management, BMW i. “The successful adaptation of state-of-the-art automotive technology to the water is a testament to the comprehensive development priorities of BMW i.”
