EC-OG supplies battery system for US power trials

13 January 2022

Aberdeen-based EC-OG has made the first commercial delivery of its Halo subsea battery storage system, it said January 10. The lithium-ion based device will be part of a world-first autonomous offshore power sea trial this quarter at the US Navy Wave Energy Test Site, off Oahu in the Pacific.

Halo (pictured below) will be integrated into the sea trial in which Columbia Power Technologies will demonstrate its autonomous offshore power system (AOPS) in partnership with the US Department of Energy.

Halo is designed to support unmanned offshore activities such as subsea vehicles, sensor packages and operating equipment. 

Paul Slorach, business development director at EC-OG, said the team was “excited to export our first Halo unit to Hawaii and be part of this innovative and world-first demonstration project alongside our client C-Power and other project partners.”
