Project Description

The main goal of this project is to design and fabricate polymer-based flexible and safe lithium ion batteries able to operate under subsea conditions. Potential applications include powering devices in underwater vehicles, emergency outage backup power, and subsea drilling structural energy storage. The device should be reliable, safe and able to instantly provide power for subsea applications. This work will pave the way for novel and improved energy storage solutions such as flexible batteries for subsea applications and expand their electrochemical performances, allowing the batteries to operate at temperatures as low as 0 degrees Celsius. The device will reliably provide a safer environment for the exploration and production of oil in subsea conditions.
