Corvus Energy agreed a licensing agreement Kawasaki Heavy Industries (KHI) for a lithium-ion capacitor (LiC) technology.

Lithium ion capacitors combines improved energy utilisation efficiency with high power density, while offering extended operational life.

Corvus Energy will introduce Blue Marlin, a new product based on the LiC ESS technology with Kawasaki Heavy Industries, in 2020. The product will target the Offshore segment it currently serves with its Orca and Dolphin ESSs and Moray subsea ESS.

“Corvus Energy has been an outstanding development partner for the LiC technology,” says Takeshi Ohata, Managing Executive Officer of Kawasaki Heavy Industries at their headquarters in Tokyo, Japan. “Their battery engineering experience and marine market leadership gives Corvus Energy expertise unlike any other.”

“It is truly a validation of our world-class R&D capabilities that KHI selected Corvus to develop this technology,” says Sean Puchalski, EVP of Strategy & Business Planning for Corvus Energy. “The new cutting-edge LiC technology will enable our Offshore customers to cost-effectively improve efficiency through energy recapture from heave compensation, drilling draw works and payload lowering applications with a lightweight, space-saving footprint."

The LiC incorporates lithium-ion capacitor cells into an energy storage system (ESS) with high-efficiency liquid cooling that maintains an optimal temperature range at very high RMS currents and charge/discharge rates. The LiC will safely sustain charge/discharge rates of 600 C peak and 300 C continuous, enabling both energy recapture/storage and fast discharge for high-power load handling.
