EC-OG Supplies Halo Intelligent Battery System for C-Power’s SeaRAY AOPS Demonstration

C-Power partner EC-OG shared exciting news in a press release to kick off the new year: The company completed the first commercial delivery of its Halo subsea battery storage system. The system was delivered to C-Power for use in the SeaRAY autonomous offshore power system at the U.S. Navy Wave Energy Test Site in Hawaii.

EC-OG described plans for its Halo system and the SeaRAY demonstration in its release:

Aberdeen-based EC-OG’s Halo system will be integrated into the sea trial in which Columbia Power Technologies, Inc. (C-Power), a leader in ocean energy systems, will demonstrate its Autonomous Offshore Power System (AOPS) in partnership with the US Department of Energy, as well as companies such as Saab, BioSonics and Franatech. The AOPS provides in-situ power, energy storage, and real-time data and communications to enable autonomous, connected and resident offshore technologies. The systems are designed to support unmanned offshore activities, including subsea vehicles, sensor packages and operating equipment.

On arrival at site in Hawaii, Halo will be fully integrated with C-Power’s SeaRAY wave energy converter as part of the AOPS system. EC-OG’s device will provide the seafloor base unit and the payload interfaces for power, data and communications to multiple subsea payloads, ensuring continuous energy availability for remote subsea operations.
