EST-Floattech has announced that its Octopus Series Battery System has received Lloyd’s Register (LR) and Bureau Veritas (BV) type approval for maritime applications.
Both LR and BV observed the tests that EST-Floattech carried out on the Octopus Series Battery System to ensure its compliance with the latest industry standards and regulations. The two classification societies approved the tests the EST-Floatech completed and granted marine type approval that the safety and performance of the system meet their standards.
EST-Floattech, which both develops and manufactures the Octopus Series Battery System, says it is proud to receive the type approval from BV and LR. “We are glad that our ‘safe by design’ mentality has been recognised through this Lloyd’s Register and Bureau Veritas type approval for maritime battery systems,” says Diederick Stam, CTO at EST-Floattech. “This achievement reinforces our commitment to providing the safest and most reliable battery systems to the maritime industry.”
Marine type approval for a battery system from respected organisations such as Bureau Veritas, and Lloyd’s Register is important for shipowners and shipbuilders to ensure that the products they are considering meet the highest standards in the industry, he adds.
