Corvus to supply bunker-saving battery system to two Statoil-chartered PSVs

02 Oct 2017 09:11 GMT

Installation to be performed to meet Statoil's condition that vessels are converted to hybrid power using batteries.



Corvus Energy has announced that it has been selected as the supplier of lithium-ion-based energy storage systems (ESS) for two platform supply vessels (PSVs) being retrofitted with hybrid power systems.

The company's Orca Energy ESS will supply electrical power to each PSV's propulsion system electrical network to enable environmentally friendly and lower cost operations. The two Havila-owned vessels are part of a larger group of PSVs that were awarded long-term charter contracts by Statoil under the condition that they convert to hybrid power operations using batteries.

The 94-metre Havila Foresight and the 93-metre Havila Charisma will each be fitted with a 1,000 kilowatt-hour (kWh) Orca Energy ESS from Corvus, supported in part by the Norwegian NOx fund. With these two additional vessels, this now makes it six vessels under charter by Statoil that have been awarded to Corvus.

The hybridization of these two vessels forms part of Statoil's strategy to become a leading company in carbon-efficient oil and gas production. Statoil is focusing on reducing emissions from its logistics activities and has mandated that all new charters shall utilize energy storage systems during all aspects of the PSV operation, particularly during dynamic positioning and harbour operations where fuel consumption and emissions are expected to be significantly reduced. Also, the ESS is set to improve safety through provision of spinning reserve for improved response time as well as increased redundancy.

"Corvus is proud to be part of Statoil's commitment to the environment and their goal of becoming a leader in cleaner oil & gas production as they leverage renewable energy technologies such as the Orca ESS," said Roger Rosvold, Sales Manager of Corvus Energy. "In collaboration with Havila, our teams have developed the optimal solution to meet the aggressive environmental, safety, performance and cost objectives."

As the leading manufacturer of energy storage systems for maritime applications, Corvus continues to lead the industry with 90+ installations utilizing a Corvus ESS, now totaling over 50 megawatt hours (MWh) and 1.5 million operating hours.
