Corvus wins contract for new all-electric, battery-powered ferry

30 Nov 2017 14:45 GMT

All-electric ferry to be equipped with a 2.9MWh Orca Energy ESS to power all vessel operations.



Corvus Energy has announced that it has been chosen by Norwegian Electric System (NES) to supply a lithium-ion-based energy storage system (ESS) for a new all-electric ferry being built by Fjellstrand for Norwegian ferry operator Fjord1.

Corvus's Orca Energy ESS solution will supply 2.9MWh to the ferry's NES all-electric power and propulsion system.

Fjord1 ferries are a key part of the transportation infrastructure along the west coast of Norway, crossing the fjords and connecting the islands to the mainland. In 2014, Fjord1 ferries and passenger boats transported 10.5 million vehicles and 21.5 million passengers.

The new all-electric ferry will operate on the Halhjem-Vage route in Hordaland.

"Corvus Energy is very honoured to have been selected to supply the battery systems for this all-electric ferry," commented Roger Rosvold, Director of Sales at Corvus Energy. "The proven Orca Energy ESS continues to set the standard for maritime energy storage solutions."

Norwegian Electric Systems (NES) is a total system integrator of diesel electric and hybrid electric systems for the global marine market. Energy storage systems such as the Orca Energy ESS are at the heart these projects.

"This vessel will set a new standard for all-electric ferries. With the Corvus Orca ESS, it will be able to sail further than existing all-electric ferries," remarked Stein Ruben Larsen, Vice President Sales at NES. Larsen added: "The Orca ESS met all the strict requirements of this project and the technical and commercial support from Corvus' local Bergen office was instrumental in securing this contract."

As a leading manufacturer of energy storage systems for maritime applications, Corvus has experience from more than 100 projects, totaling over 75 megawatt hours (MWh and 1.5 million operating hours.
