In April, Kraken reported it had received a $3 million purchase order from an undisclosed client for the delivery of its subsea batteries.

According to the company, the SeaPower 6000-meter-rated batteries are based on the pressure-tolerant gel encapsulation technology for lithium polymer batteries.

This is said to provide an environmentally friendly and superior energy density alternative to the traditional oil-compensated batteries commonly used for deep subsea battery applications.

The hot-swappable batteries are modular and include an integrated battery management system within each battery module.
