Corvus showcases fuel-saving battery solution for first time in North America

Energy storage system manufacturer exhibits and presents at Florida event.





Updated on 17 Jan 2017 06:43 GMT

Leading lithium-ion based energy storage system (ESS) manufacturer Corvus Energy is this week showcasing its next-generation Orca energy storage system (ESS) for the first time in North America.

The Canada-headquartered firm is attending the Electric & Hybrid Marine World Expo Florida at the Tampa Convention Center. In addition to having a booth at the event, David Lokhorst, Corvus VP of Engineering, is giving a presentation entitled 'Designing safer and more reliable lithium-ion based energy storage systems' on Wednesday 18th January at 11:35 a.m.

Earlier this month, Corvus confirmed that in less than six months since the launch of Orca ESS, the order book for its next-generation battery solution had exceeded nine megawatt hours (MWh).

Rather than a single product approach, the Orca ESS product line delivers a range of products that are designed to meet the various needs of maritime customers. Orca Energy is said to be ideal for applications that require large amounts of energy, such as ferries and merchant vessels, while Orca Power was designed for applications that require a seamless response to dynamic power loads, such as offshore supply vessels and port equipment.

"Beyond the technical advances that Orca ESS brings to the industry, Corvus has rewritten the economics of implementing a battery solution for hybrid or all-electric applications. With a step change in cost, the Corvus Orca ESS provides an economical solution that drastically reduces fuel consumption and maintenance costs - all while helping the environment," Corvus said last week.

As reported by Bunker Index in December, North America's first LNG-battery hybrid cargo ferry, the Seaspan Swift, features two dual-fuel engines and a Corvus lithium ion ESS that operates as spinning reserve and provides propulsion power for low-speed manoeuvres.

In November, Corvus announced that Scandlines' newest hybrid ferry, the M/V Copenhagen, will utilize a low-emission, fuel-saving, diesel-electric hybrid propulsion system powered by a Corvus ESS. The M/V Copenhagen is the sixth Scandlines hybrid ferry to utilize a Corvus ESS.

The Electric & Hybrid Marine World Expo Florida event is being held between 16th and 18th January in Tampa, United States. Corvus's Orca energy storage systems are being showcased at booth 4060.
