Peak
Shaving

reduce peak demand
by up to 40%
and protect machinery and electrical equipment

Renewables
Integration

improve the reliability and quality of energy supply from the renewables

ENERGY REGENERATION

  • When cargo is lowered, Kinetic recovers wasted potential energy and stores it

  • When cargo is lifted, Kinetic releases energy to power the crane

  • Kinetic recovers ~40% of energy when cargo is moved horizontally and ~90% when a ship is unloaded

  • Additionally, reduced energy demand allows engines and generators to be downsized further reducing environmental impact 

PEAK SHAVING

  • Multiple cranes operating in parallel put significant stress on the local grid and cause dangerous frequency and voltage fluctuations

  • Kinetic accumulates energy during low demand hours to provide peak power to the grid when needed 

  • Kinetic automatically regulates frequency and voltage, maintaining them within the required range thus​ mitigating the risks of blackouts and protecting the machinery 

RENEWABLES INTEGRATION

  • Energy supply from renewable sources is often intermittent and unreliable. Kinetic provides ancillary services that improve the quality and stability of energy supply

  • Kinetic automatically controls and regulates frequency and voltage

  • Kinetic smoothes the energy output and ensures a stable supply

  • Kinetic controls the ramp rate and absorbs sudden peaks in generation 

OTHER BENEFITS 

Affordable and reliable service over a longer time

  • Unlimited number of 100% DOD cycles without degradation

  • Long service life of more than 25 years

  • Simple and low-cost maintenance

  • Wide operating temperature range from  -40 ° C to +80 °C

  • Complete operational safety, including explosion- and burst-proof (no need for protective casing)​

  • Environmentally friendly and recyclable, manufactured using non-hazardous materials

 

Сompatible with most of the modern lifting/loading equipment and could be easily integrated into the infrastructure:

  • Compatible with most cranes: STS, RTG, RMG, Portal, Mobile

  • Connects to a crane via a power cable and standard industrial interfaces, no mechanical connection to a crane's motor is required

  • Requires only minor software adjustments and no mechanical modifications to a crane 

  • Due to compact size and lightweight could be located nearby in a separate enclosure or mounted on a crane

  • Easily integrated with both isolated and externally connected power networks
