Corvus batteries for electric quintet
Corvus Energy will supply lithium ion battery-based energy storage systems (ESS) for five new all-electric ferries being built by Havyard for Norwegian ferry operator Fjord1.
This follows a previous order in November 2017 to supply the ESSs for three similar newbuilt Fjord1 ferries, both orders having come through Norwegian Electric System (NES), a Norwegian system integrator of electric systems for the global marine market.
“Corvus Energy is honoured to once again be selected to provide Orca Energy Storage Systems for Fjord1 ferries,” said Roger Rosvold, director of sales & key account at Corvus Energy.
“NES are skilled and experienced electrical system integrators, and our close partnership with them in designing and delivering these innovative solutions is key to accelerating the adoption of energy storage systems.”
Each of the five all-electric ferries, which are 111 metres in length and hold 120 cars, will be equipped with a 2.9 MWh Corvus Orca Energy ESS that will supply electrical power to the ferry’s NES all-electric power and propulsion systems.
They are expected to be delivered in 2019 and will operate on the Magerholm-Sykkylven route.
“Fjord1 continues to forge a very progressive path towards environmentally sustainable operations with these additional all-electric ferries,” said Stein Ruben Larsen, Vice President Sales at NES.
“The proven reliability, safety and performance of the air-cooled Orca ESS was important in awarding this contract to Corvus Energy.”
Corvus’s innovative Orca ESS solution has now been used for over 140 projects, totalling over 100 MWh and 1.5 million operating hours.
