Corvus Energy has been selected by Norwegian Electric Systems (NES) to supply lithium-ion, battery-based energy storage systems (ESS) for two new all-electric ferries being built by Havyard for Norwegian ferry operator Fjord1. The ferries are due to operate on the Magerholm-Sykkylven route.

The latest order follows a previous order in November to supply ESSs for three similar newbuild Fjord1 ferries that will operate on the Hareid-Sulesund route.

Each of the five all-electric ferries, which are 111 meters in length and hold 120 cars, will be equipped with a 2.9-MWh Corvus Orca Energy ESS that will supply electrical power to the ferry's NES all-electric power and propulsion systems. They are expected to be delivered in 2019.

"Fjord1 continues to forge a very progressive path towards environmentally sustainable operations with these additional all-electric ferries," commented Stein Ruben Larsen, Vice President Sales at NES, a total system integrator of electric systems for the global marine market.

Commenting on the firm's ESS selection, Larsen said: "The proven reliability, safety and performance of the air-cooled Orca ESS was important in awarding this contract to Corvus Energy."

Roger Rosvold, Director of Sales & Key Account at Corvus Energy, remarked: "Corvus Energy is honoured to once again be selected to provide Orca Energy Storage Systems for Fjord1 ferries. NES are skilled and experienced electrical system integrators, and our close partnership with them in designing and delivering these innovative solutions is key to accelerating the adoption of energy storage systems."
