Corvus Energy has been selected by SEACOR Marine and Rolls-Royce to provide lithium ion-based energy storage systems (ESS) for three new platform supply vessels (PSVs) being fitted with hybrid power systems.

The brand-new PSVs were acquired by SEACOSCO, a joint venture between SEACOR and China Cosco Shipping Group (COSCO), and are to be retrofitted into hybrid vessels.

As with most hybrid PSVs, typical vessel operations will utilize the batteries to provide spinning reserve during critical vessel operations such as dynamic positioning, as well as to provide support for peak shaving, enabling the diesel engines to operate more efficiently.

Utilizing battery power from the Orca ESS will not only reduce the environmental footprint of the offshore operations but are also expected to significantly reduce operational costs, including fuel and engine maintenance.

With these latest project wins, the Corvus Orca ESS will be providing battery power to seven SEACOR hybrid PSVs and 100 percent of the hybrid PSVs operating in the Gulf of Mexico.

"Corvus is pleased to be an integral part of SEACOR's growing fleet of hybrid PSVs," commented Halvard Hauso, Senior Vice President of Sales at Corvus Energy.

"Tightly integrated with the Rolls-Royce hybrid power solution, the Orca ESS will enable these vessels to achieve significant environmental and energy efficiency benefits."

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.
