First reference for Corvus gas-safe PEMFC solution


Source: Hvide Sande Shipyard

In a first for Corvus Energy, its inherently gas-safe Pelican hydrogen PEM fuel cell solution has been specified for a retrofit installation on board a fishing and training vessel operated by a Norwegian educational establishment. The 35-metre long vessel will be the first of its kind, combining both fuel cells and batteries in a fishing vessel.

The order was placed by Hvide Sande Shipyard in Denmark for Corvus Energy to supply a complete hydrogen fuel cell system for the training vessel MS Skulebas. The order represents the first reference for Corvus Energy’s Pelican system, which is designed to fully comply with the well-known inherently gas-safe principle. As such, it can be placed anywhere onboard a ship without additional safety systems.

Corvus will deliver a 340-kW PEM fuel cell system for Skulebas and Hexagon Purus will deliver the Hydrogen storage solutions. The hydrogen fuel cell system is scheduled for delivery in Q2 2024 and will be in full operation from Q3 2024.
