CLEVELAND and VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Beckett Energy Systems, a division of the RW Beckett Corporation, and Nuytco Research Ltd. have announced a strategic sales alliance focusing on the Maritime industry applications of Beckett's Model 8224S Li-ion Battery Modules and Model 84BMS Battery Management System / Controllers.

Beckett Energy's 24Vdc lithium-ion battery module's versatility has proven itself in many market applications.  With its large 1.1kWh (42 Ah) storage capacity, light weight less than 8kg (17.5lb), and configurability from 24Vdc to 500Vdc, it is an ideal power source for the Maritime industry, ocean research and sea exploration.  "The Maritime power industry will receive significant benefits from our lithium-ion battery technology and having the reputation of Nuytco in this market space adds significant credibility for our solutions," states Mark Kasinec of Beckett Energy Systems.   

Nuytco has been successfully utilizing Beckett's lithium-ion battery packs in their Dual Deepworker manned submersible and has recently specified them for all future Nuytco built manned submersibles.  Nuytco is pleased with the performance and support of the Beckett lithium-ion battery solution and as a pioneer in the industry, can leverage their substantial relationships in the market.  Nuytco Research President Phil Nuytten comments, "The change-over from our conventional power system to one that offered more than twice the duration and less than half the weight was a no-brainer, and after lengthy review of contemporary competitive Li-ion systems we found that the Beckett solution offered us a significantly advanced product at a competitive cost."

Some additional facts on Beckett Energy's advanced energy products:

  • Safe operation of the lithium-ion battery pack starts with the understanding of the application and sizing the pack, and continues through a hierarchal approach including: Cell Selection, Module Design, BMS functionality and Testing & Qualification process.
