When we talk about exceptional vehicles we are not joking, especially as regards electric vehicles powered by powerful batteries, in an era in which zero-emission mobility is taking over, and not just in terms of cars and motorcycles.
To rule today, especially in large cities, there are predominantly electric scooters, which, however, are “under accusation” because they are considered even more polluting than a car; in this regard we have recently published a piece of news that speaks of a study that proves it, with related data.
This time, however, we are not talking about a vehicle that travels by road, but a real giant “of the waters”, which will take up service in China by the end of 2021. A ship that has over 10,000 cells supplied by CATL, for a total capacity of 7.5 MWh. As well as being the world’s largest battery manufacturer, China is now also the manufacturer of largest battery in the world. The Yangtze River Three Gorges 1 is the largest zero-emission cruise ship ever built, a record-breaking vessel.
It was officially presented in recent days, after the largest hybrid ship seen in recent months; at the moment it is still under construction and we will therefore be able to see it leave the shipyards next summer, in July. Most likely it will begin to travel in November, however not later than the end of the year.
In particular, it is a cruise ship, which will begin its voyages on the route that is already regularly traveled by traditional ships, through the stretch of the Yangtze River between the cities of Yichang and Chongqing. The zero emission cruise ship it was commissioned by Wuxi Saisiyi Electric Technology, also financed with public money. The super battery of the “waters” giant has a capacity of 7.5 MWh, which corresponds in practice to that of more than 100 electric cars with good autonomy. Do not you believe it? It’s really like this! The cells are more than 10,000.
CATL is the manufacturer of this super battery, which at the moment has not made any statements about the technical details of the product and the speed with which it can receive energy; given the large capacity, we think that a full tank will take several hours.
