Amongst other measures, Furyan Marine Technology use an easy to control integrated heat pump thermal management system in the Furyan F35 Eco Hybrid cruiser for their high voltage efficient thermal management system, cabin heating and cabin cooling. All the measures taken by Furyan help extend the life of the battery and help use the available energy in the most efficient way.
➢ Immersion cooling ensures the cells operate in the ideal temperature range
➢ Lowest temperature spread within the battery packs provides significant lifetime benefits
➢ Superior lifetime under high loads in fast charging, high-performance and hybrid modes
Pleasure marine sailing takes place for typically 30 days in a season, with an average of 40 full charging cycles. The Furyan Eco Hybrid could therefore have a theoretical battery life of 62 years @ 90% SOH (state of health) and still have an end-of-life value. Conclusion, could the batteries last the lifetime of the boat? EV batteries are designed for between 1500 and 2000 charging cycles which typically occurs over 12 years. We believe that with the correct battery management this design life of 12 years could be extended to the lifetime of use in an electric boat.
