Saft has been selected by BWT Lighting as the exclusive supplier for Li-ion batteries for solar-powered navigational lanterns. BWT will rely on Saft to provide more than 72,000 batteries for fixed-aid and buoy lanterns being built for the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG).
Saft’s Li-ion batteries are ideal for the offshore buoys because they are solar-rechargeable, require minimal maintenance and provide a longer lifetime. Over time, these benefits produce cost savings through limited service trips and longer battery life. In addition, Li-ion batteries will outperform other battery chemistries under the harsh temperatures and elements of the marine environment.
