Electric cars are hitting maturity, and there’s a feverish pitch around the nascent electric aircraft industry, but what about the boats? Well, XING Mobility isn’t just keeping this aquatic space in mind, it has developed “advanced electric battery and powertrain products” for the marine vehicle market.
“XING Mobility’s Immersio™ Modular Battery System is a stackable energy solution that acts as a direct engine replacement and can be configured into a huge variety of size, shape and power needs.
Uniquely made up of standardized, compact modules, the product is designed to make it as easy as possible for boat and marine vehicle manufacturers to electrify their existing fleets, or to design electric prototypes that can be tested, validated and certified within a short development time.
The products are optimized to serve manufacturers who produce fleets in low-to-medium volume with a high-mix of vehicle or marine equipment types, where configuration of the powertrain within unusual hull or chassis space is critical.
In the boating and marine industry, applications of the Immersio™ Modular Battery System can range from high performance boat applications to passenger ferries.”
Notably, the company are a market leader in immersion cooling technology, a thermal management method that submerges battery cells directly in non-conductive cooling fluid.
Immersion cooling in electric vehicles is now widely considered to be the most effective method of cooling due to the 100% cell-to-coolant contact.
This improved heat control and cell temperature uniformity enhances the lifecycle of the battery to 3000 charge cycles or more and allows each cell to reach its optimum performance levels while remaining compact and lightweight.
Taking a high-performance personal speedboat as an example, XING Mobility predicts that by maximizing the vehicle’s performance and increasing the battery life with immersion cooling technology, electrification can reduce the cost of lifetime fuel consumption to less than 20% of that of an average internal combustion engine vehicle.
