AACHEN, Germany, April 7, 2022—The batteries of three electric yachts in the South Pacific can now be monitored from anywhere in the world thanks to ACCURE's battery safety analytics software. It enables the manufacturer Soel Yachts and its technical partner Naval DC to obtain information about the condition of the batteries used for the vessels' zero-emission propulsion systems, despite being over 15,000 km away in Bora Bora atoll.
The batteries' energy consumption, aging, and safety parameters are shown on a dashboard. This allows maintenance to be carried out early on and any spare parts necessary to be dispatched in good time, since they'll take a few days to arrive. Under the partnership, ACCURE now manages battery systems from the energy and transport sectors totaling over 1,111 megawatt hours.
“We have demonstrated that we can detect incidents like battery fires before they happen. We also predict and manage issues like recalls and warranty concerns to mitigate safety risk and maximize uptime. The economic and reputational value becomes obvious to our customers," said Dr. Kai Philipp Kairies, CEO of ACCURE. "ACCURE Cloud is like Google Analytics for batteries. Without disrupting any of our customers’ physical operations, we ingest the data provided by each battery and analyze it. This creates an extremely valuable resource for the further development and optimization of the battery as well as the system where it’s installed.”
Dr. Karolin Funk, Partner at Blue Bear Capital: “ACCURE has developed a much-needed product to manage batteries in a fast-growing market. We believe that ACCURE’s team has the right experience to help asset owners protect billions of dollars of systems in the field across the globe. Thanks to its SaaS solution that can easily be retrofitted to any battery system, ACCURE is scaling quickly at the right point in time to shape this market.”
ACCURE was founded in 2020 by Kai-Philipp Kairies, Georg Angenendt, and Johannes Palmer. The three founders have been researching battery technology and developing simulations since 2009 at RWTHAachen, one of the leading battery research hotspots in Europe. ACCURE’s customers include some of the largest providers of home storage units in Europe and a leading German utility.
