>>There is a battery bank of some 400Kw hours (again like Ethereal). These LMFP (Lithium Iron Magnesium Phosphate) batteries occupy around one cubic metre (just under one tonne and at today’s prices 125,000 Euros) per 100kW hour.
Siemens work with a number of suppliers, one of whom is Valence, a US company whose batteries are (in a case of coals to Newcastle) made in China, the source of the most advanced battery technology today (Valence batteries bottom image on previous page).<<
If my math is correct this is over $500,000.00 US per yacht.
Not sure there is a long waiting list or any "production line" for these yachts but it still adds up and is solid validation once again of the Valence technology. Nice to see Siemens claim in their promotional brochure that Valence batteries are some of the "most advanced battery technology today".
One of these days someone is going to connect the dots and start buying Valence stock.
