Part 6 Additional class notations - Chapter 2 Propulsion, power generation and auxiliary systems
|Publication Date:||1 January 2018|
The scope for additional class notations Battery(Power) and Battery(Safety) add an increased level of safety related to battery installations in vessels. The rules in this section are considered to satisfy the requirements for specific types of battery installation and certification, in accordance with the following list:
- battery systems used as main source of power
- battery systems used as additional source of power
- battery systems used for miscellaneous services
- requirements for certification of the batteries.
Since commercial battery technology will be under constant development, the requirements of this section may need to be supported by additional information and requirements, on a case by case basis. Designs that are not in compliance with this section may be approved after evaluation by the Society, provided that it can be demonstrated that the design represents an equal or better level of safety.
The additional class notation Shore Power in Ch.7 Sec.5 sets requirements for the shore power connection arrangement. For vessels with the battery converter located on shore the class notation Shore Power is mandatory.
