FleetZero begins its search for the first giant ship to convert to battery power

FleetZero has an ambitious goal: to compete with global shipping companies with its own boats, powered entirely by electricity. The company just secured $15.5 million in new funding and is looking for the first ship to convert to run on its shipping container-shaped batteries.The company’s plan, described in detail ...

FleetZero has an ambitious goal: to compete with global shipping companies with its own boats, powered entirely by electricity. The company just secured $15.5 million in new funding and is looking for the first ship to convert to run on its shipping container-shaped batteries.

The company’s plan, described in detail here, is to convert existing ships to electric propulsion, replacing the diesel engine or generator with enormous batteries of the company’s own design. These would be loaded and unloaded like any other cargo, swapped out at ports and charged between journeys. Done right (and it seems likely that’s the way they’re trying to do it) a ship doing this can handle some of the longest and most popular routes across the Pacific.

But though it all sounds good in theory, obviously at some point you need to put these theories on the water, and that’s the next step for the company. Fortunately, co-founders Steven Henderson and Mike Carter have backgrounds in shipping and shipbuilding and are excited to jump in.

While FleetZero’s tech could eventually power ships in the 700-foot range, it makes sense to start with something a little smaller, but that also benefits from battery power.

“Companies across the spectrum have reached out for us across industries — not just container shipping,” said Henderson. “So we’ve been going through the list of the biggest auxiliary ship companies, like supply vessels for oil and gas companies, and research vessels, and saying: all right, we’ve got this tech, and our goal is eventually to go do our own cargo, but we want to prove it out with a partner so we don’t have to spend millions on the first ship.”

Surprisingly, this “want to give us a boat?” pitch went over quite well. “People are so interested in our batteries that they’re willing to pay us to test them,” Henderson added. Ultimately FleetZero plans to make their own boats, but that’s a long-term goal.

It helps to understand that there’s a real variety in ocean-going vessels and their operators. Some big companies own and operate, some only own or only operate, some have fleets for short term hire, and so on. The possibility of electrifying their ships has a different charm to all these, though some are more likely to bite first.

One of those better prospects is the “auxiliary” category of ships mentioned earlier: these are things like research vessels, ships that go out and inspect offshore wind farms, and other tasks that take a serious boat and crew but aren’t the hyper-specialized bulk movers of container ships. Many of these ships are already partially electrified — they use electric motors powered by diesel generators. It sounds like the worst of both worlds, but I’m sure they have their reasons — and more importantly, they’re really easy to convert to FleetZero’s battery tech.

“It’s minimum scope; the conversion itself takes a matter of weeks, and it doesn’t involve a dry dock,” said Henderson. “In the best case, a PSV [platform supply vessel] about 250 feet long, we put our batteries on the back deck and just wire them in.”

Such a conversion would be an important proof of concept; though the company has plenty of inbound, there are surely doubters out there who would like to see a working vessel before committing any resources.

Carter noted that FleetZero is one of relatively few companies attempting to really move the needle in shipping. Though logistics and supply chain economics certainly have their share of innovation on the data and services side, the ships and shipping companies themselves have stagnated.

In fact, he pointed out, the White House recently issued a report lamenting that “three global alliances, made up entirely of foreign companies, control almost all of ocean freight shipping.” And when they say almost all, they mean it: we’re talking 95 percent of some critical trade lines. The feds will be looking into price fixing (and in fact just passed a law), but syupporting a sustainable American alternative is kind of a no-brainer as well.

It’s hard to challenge such a dominant set of incumbents (which may well be termed a cartel at this point), and FleetZero can’t make any claims to doing so as a fresh new startup, but their approach neatly avoids the most direct competition.

The electrified ships the company builds with shipping partners will operate in parallel to traditional lines, using smaller ports inaccessible to huge container ships. This saves time (less waiting for a spot at the docks) and money (cities with disused ports are excited to reactivate them), and makes for a robust network of charging and offloading stations across the pacific. Of course, they’ll need to make some friends in southeast Asia as well.

The new funding was led by Breakthrough Energy Ventures, the Bill Gates-led venture group that the man himself talked about recently at TC Sessions: Climate. Apparently they were big on due diligence — it shouldn’t be a surprise, but there it is.

Bill Gates joined us at TechCrunch Sessions: Climate 2022 to discuss his priorities in terms of investment projects and technological breakthroughs needed to help effectively address climate change.

BEV wasn’t alone, though; Founders Fund, McKinley Capital, and previous investors also contributed. Carter said that McKinley, based in Alaska, was an important one to get since of course the state makes up a huge portion of the Pacific U.S. coast.

The money will be crucial for building out and testing the first ship, but FleetZero is also hiring — they had 1,500 applicants for 10 positions after they came out of stealth. It suggests a lot of people in the shipping world are interested in the company, or perhaps a lot of people at other companies are interested in the shipping world.

Counting Down The Irish — No. 31 S-DJ Brown

For most of the 2021 season, Irish safety DJ Brown was a sound, solid senior contributor.

A co-starter with classmate Houston Griffith opposite All-Everything junior Kyle Hamilton, Brown made plays—three interceptions; x PD—and he helped get his Irish defense off the field, a reality evidenced by his eight ‘Drive MVP’ awards per our film reviews.

(Isaiah Foskey led the team with 28 while Brown’s 8 were as many as TaRiq Bracy and seven more than aforementioned co-starter Griffith.)

But if asked to grade Brown’s 13 game day tests last season, the lasting reality is that his final of 13 assignments was a fail on a pass/fail scale.

Against Oklahoma State, only Clarence Lewis and Cain Madden struggled more than did Brown. It was an odd ending by a safety who could most often be described in the negative as ‘nondescript’ rather than damaging in any way.

Tackling in space was the root of his issue against the Cowboys.

“Our focus this winter was just improving that power that he has, finding a little bit more in that he’s able to pop people a little bit,” said safeties coach Chris O’Leary. “So he's done a great job in the weight room, and it's been pointed out here (in the spring) and starting to show up.”

Brown is one of three Irish safeties who formerly played cornerback (Griffith and Ramon Henderson) and one of four who switched positions (former receiver Xavier Watts).

“That's crazy,” O’Leary noted with a chuckle. “It’s just the natural coverage ability. (Brown) is just a good football player; they’re good football players, so by playing receiver or corner or nickel, they have that vantage point of knowing what to expect. A big picture awareness and the ability to understand what’s going on around them helps them to be better football players.”

Solid. Sound. Reliable. An overlooked “find-the-ball” defender after Hamilton was lost to injury.

Until one game in which he wasn’t. Brown’s fifth and likely final season in South Bend is less about not making mistakes—that’s a fine role for a back line player opposite the remarkable Hamilton—and more about causing them for others.

“Last year it was ‘learn the defense, be in the right spot.’ It was the first time those guys (Brown, Griffith) were taking major reps,” said O’Leary. “Now it's like, We want to be the best safety unit in the country. So what does that take? That takes making plays. And so when you're out there, you're not just out there. To be out there, you gotta go make plays.”

The six-foot, 200-pound safety from Annapolis, MD is today’s feature in our Counting Down the Irish series.

Prister Says: “It seems as if Brown’s abilities/progress are overlooked, and I include myself. But when Kyle Hamilton went down, Brown stepped up his game significantly. The ’22 season didn’t end on a high note – Brown struggled against Oklahoma State – but he might be one of the most under-appreciated players on the roster.”

What To Expect In 2022

One starter is set, Northwestern transfer and 2020 All-American Brandon Joseph.

The other three spots are up for grabs among Brown, Henderson, and Griffith with Watts pressing anyone not as physical as he when contacting the ball-carriers.

It is the Brown vs. Henderson battle that emerged after the spring; the former faring better in the Blue-Gold Game, the latter seemingly holding the edge entering that scrimmage.

The only guarantee is that Brown and Henderson will both play—and the hunch here is they’ll be part of a rotation opposite Joseph with Griffith and Watts finding less field time, at least early as the defense settles in to its third scheme in three seasons.

Said O’Leary of the quartet near spring’s conclusion: “We’ve got four guys that go with the ones and twos. Nobody's a starter…When we go into fall camp, I anticipate being the same.

"Sometimes I put you with the threes, and the quarterback with threes better be shaking his head saying ‘Why the hell are you out there versus threes?’ That's the mindset. They know that, and they understand that, and I think what it builds is an understanding that all of you guys are gonna play We need everybody. So that unit strength that we're looking for—that’s kind of how we're starting to build that.”

Future Prospects

Brown could return for a sixth season (Griffith cannot, 2022 is his *COVID-19 afforded final year). Henderson is a near certainty to remain in South Bend as a senior in ’23 and likely as a fifth-year player in ’24.

Watts’s eligibility mirrors Henderson’s (*they both could play through ’24) while redshirt-freshman Justin Walters should join the fray as the ’22 season progresses. Top tier prospects Peyton Bowen and Adon Shuler will up the ante for their elders upon arrival in ’23.

Part of Brown’s decision at season’s end might first include one made by Joseph, the consensus pre-season All-American could elect to enter the NFL Draft with a strong campaign for an Irish team expected to challenge for a Playoff berth.

Stat Of The Day

Brown graded well per Pro Football Focus’s analytics, last year finishing third among all Irish defenders in overall grade (Isaiah Foskey and Jack Kiser were 1-2) and first among Irish defensive backs in terms of his pass defense. (Hamilton was second, Cam Hart third.)

He was further down the scale in my game charts. Per Irish Illustrated’s film reviews, Brown placed 13th on the defense in ‘Drive MVPs’ (the analysis I believe best determines a player’s impact), just ahead of NaNa Osafo-Mensah, while finishing 10th in Third Down Wins—just ahead of Howard Cross and Clarence Lewis; just behind TaRiq Bracy.

Quote To Note

“I don't want Brandon and DJ to have good communication, but then when X comes in with DJ DJ’s not saying anything. It doesn’t matter who’s next to you. It’s the same statement. By mixing and matching, you’re testing them, challenging them to do that, and I like it to be a little bit uncomfortable. You start getting comfortable at safety, that’s when you got problems on Saturday.” — O’Leary on the plusses, and minuses, of a four-player safety rotation.

NOTTINGHAM FOREST boss Steve Cooper expects to tie the knot with Dean Henderson next week - once the Manchester United goalie returns from his honeymoon.

Henderson married his girlfriend in Rome last weekend and is currently enjoying the second week of his honeymoon break.

The 25-year-old keeper is expected to return to England this weekend and will then undergo a Forest medical as he closes in on a year-long loan deal with the Premier League newcomers.

Henderson should put pen to paper on the deal early next week before heading for Alicante with his new Forest team-mates for their pre-season training camp in Spain.

And the new boy could make his Forest debut against Coventry City in the Pinatar Arena on Friday, July 8.

Henderson is hoping regular Premier League game time could yet see him gatecrash Gareth Southgate's world cup squad and earn him an England recall.



Henderson had ambitions of dethroning United No.1 David de Gea following a two-year loan spell with Sheffield United.

But the stopper was unable to establish himself as the main man between the sticks at Old Trafford - although he did make 26 appearances in all competitions in the 2020/21 season.

Last season provided to be a torrid one for the former Blades keeper, who only took to the field THREE times.

Ex-United keeper Mark Bosnich is a big fan of Henderson and believes now is the right time for him to move on.

During an appearance on told talkSPORT, the Aussie said: “I think he should go.

He’s at the stage of his career where he needs to be playing regular football.

“He’ll know that as well. I understand that at the start of the season, him having a go in pre-season to see how things plan out.



“De Gea has been excellent and there’s no doubt about it, but I think from Dean Henderson’s point of view, he needs to start looking after Dean Henderson.

“He should go and should go as soon as he possibly can.
