Batteries perform numerous tasks on ships: supplying automatic and communications systems, as starter batteries, as emergency power supply, on-board network battery, etc. In addition to providing resistant and reliable power dissipation, the systems and modules must be able to withstand extreme environmental influences: including corrosive sea air, constant vibrations from the waves, and extreme temperature fluctuations.
Phoenix Testlab is recognized by the Federal Maritime Shipping and Hydrography Authority and is happy to perform the required type tests according to the latest standards set by shipbuilding classification societies (DNV GL, LR, BV, RINA, etc.).
