Corvus boosts Scandlines battery power
Corvus Energy is to deliver an additional 2.6 MWh battery system to Scandlines, operator of the world’s largest battery hybrid electric ferry fleet.
Scandlines’ battery hybrid electric ferries provide a vital economic link between Denmark and Germany, with daily sailings on multiple routes between these countries. Corvus says Scandlines ferries outfitted with its ESS have been proven to significantly improve the engine efficiency leading to reduced greenhouse gas emissions, lower maintenance costs and significantly decreased fuel costs.
“Corvus is an important strategic partner in our continued implementation of new technologies to improve the operational efficiencies and reduce the environmental impact of our ferry fleet,” said Søren Poulsgaard Jensen, Scandlines.
“Their innovative battery technology enables significant vessel performance improvements in both areas which also supports our ongoing commitment to service excellence,” he added.
Scandlines’ fleet of battery hybrid ferries currently include: M/V Deutschland, M/V Schleswig-Holstein, M/V Prins Richard and M/V Prinsesse Benedikte, with the M/V Copenhagen and M/V Berlin under construction. Each vessel has between 1.5 MWh and 2.6 MWh of energy storage.
“Our industry leading energy storage technology supports Scandlines’ operational goals of increasing efficiencies and minimising the environmental impact of their vessels,” said Andrew Morden, president and CEO of Corvus Energy.
