Scandlines awards 10-year hybrid ferry contract

11 Apr 2017 10:53 GMT

Contract includes service and maintenance of the fleets' energy storage systems.



Corvus Energy has been awarded a 10-year, long-term service and maintenance agreement for the entire Scandlines hybrid ferry fleet. The comprehensive multi-year contract includes both traditional service & maintenance of the fleets' energy storage systems, plus Corvus's remote condition-based monitoring service, Watchman.

Scandlines was the first ferry operator to build and operate large roll-on/ roll off passenger (ro-pax) hybrid ferries that combine traditional diesel power with advanced battery power. Scandlines utilizes Corvus's lithium-ion-based energy storage systems throughout the entire fleet to provide the battery power.

"We thank Scandlines for their continued confidence in our products and services as they execute their ambitious environmental strategy," said Ronald Hansen, Global Head of Service & Commissioning for Corvus Energy. "Supported by our highly experienced technical experts, our strong presence in the region and working closely with Scandlines, our advanced services and maintenance solutions will help ensure the Scandlines hybrid ferries operate reliably for many years to come."

"Scandlines is very pleased to continue and expand our long partnership with Corvus Energy. Beginning with Corvus in 2012, their industry leading energy storage technology has become the standard electric battery power solution for all of our hybrid vessels," remarked Fini Hansen, Technical Superintendent of Fleet Management at Scandlines.

On 5th February, Scandlines put their two newest Corvus powered hybrid ferries, the M/V Berlin and M/V Copenhagen, into regular service on their Rostock-Gedser route between Denmark and Germany. Along with the decreased environmental impact, the fuel consumption of the vessels is said to have been reduced to almost one third per crossing per car compared to the previous ferries used on the same route.
