AAM Wins Hybrid Passenger Vessel Contract

AAM Wins Hybrid Passenger Vessel Contract

MarineLink
February 13, 2017
All American Marine, Inc. (AAM), inked a deal for the construction of a new hybrid electric passenger vessel to be delivered to the Red and White Fleet of San Francisco, California.  The contract for the new 600 passenger aluminum monohull was signed during the recent annual Maritrends Conference put on by the Passenger Vessel Association.
AAM’s latest contract follows an earlier announcement made by the company regarding a construction agreement for a 500 passenger aluminum monohull tour boat for Argosy Cruises of Seattle, WA.  Both operators were originally pursuing construction contracts for steel monohulls, but AAM was successfully able to demonstrate considerable savings in construction and maintenance costs with an aluminum design, while ensuring delivery of a robust and solid hull structure.  These contracts bode well for AAM, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary and is in the process of moving into a brand new purpose-built ship building facility at nearby Squalicum Harbor.  Argosy will take delivery of their vessel in the late fall and the Red and White Fleet will receive their new craft in the late spring of 2018.
The new vessel for Red and Fleet, to be christened, Enhydra, will be the first aluminum hulled, Lithium-Ion battery-electric hybrid vessel built from the keel up under US Coast Guard subchapter-K passenger vessel regulations and the latest guidelines for structural fire protection.  The vessel will be 128’ long with a moulded beam of 30’ and is specifically designed for harbor tours of San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge.  Guests on board Enhydra will be able to experience amazing views of the bay and cityscape from each of the three decks, complete with their own convenient snack bar.  The second level offers a full wrap around viewing deck with access to the enlarged bow foredeck, which is sure to become a favorite photo spot.  The top deck is completely open and offers plenty of outdoor seating for sun soaking or respite from the busyness of the city.
All American Marine partnered with BAE Systems (BAESY) to design and integrate the complete battery electric hybrid system.  BAE Systems will supply their HybriDrive Propulsion System that includes a generator, control system, and AC electric traction motor.  The generator will mount to a variable speed Cummins (CMI) QSL9 410 mhp@2100 rpm diesel engine.  The motor generator offers diesel-electric operation of the AC traction motor which is coupled directly to the propulsion shaft.    With this configuration, torque is immediately available for the propeller and the speed can be precisely controlled without the need for a reduction gear.
The hybrid system will also utilize battery power from two 80 kWh Lithium-ion battery packs.  The batteries will come from Corvus Energy and are supplied under their next generation Orca Energy line.  The BAE HybridDrive system can automatically utilize full electric battery operation at slower speeds and when maneuvering in and out of the harbor.  At higher speeds, the generator will automatically engage and augment the additional power demands of the traction motor.  The battery system is sufficient to meet the entire demand of the vessel’s hotel load while at the same time providing silent and emission-free operation of the propulsion system during an evening sunset cruise.  Red and White Fleet’s Vice President of Operations, Joe Burgard, expressed “We are very pleased with the team All American Marine has put together to deliver this unique vessel and are eager for our guests to experience San Francisco Bay from the silent decks of the Enhydra in 2018. We see the propulsion configuration on the Enhydra as phase one in our move toward the full electrification of our fleet. Stay tuned for phase two.”
 
All American Marine Inc., located on the shores of Bellingham Bay, was founded in 1987 and specializes in the construction of custom tailored aluminum boats.  Today, the company has become a leading builder of high speed passenger catamarans, monohull tour boats, survey craft, and research vessels.  All American Marine is the exclusive builder for Teknicraft Design Ltd. catamarans in North America.
Founded in 1892, the historic Red and White Fleet is legendary for its premier San Francisco Cruises. Family owned, the Red and White Fleet is committed to environmental sustainability and community education as one of the oldest businesses operating in the San Francisco Bay area.

New Battery System for Shanghai Port Cranes

New Battery System for Shanghai Port Cranes

The Maritime Executive

By MarEx 2017-02-09 18:50:52

Corvus Energy will provide newly-designed lithium-ion energy storage systems for a hybrid rubber-tired gantry crane (RTG) designed by CCCC Shanghai Equipment Engineering.

The new solution, being taken up by Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industry, the world’s largest port crane manufacturer, is a smaller, ultra high power, liquid cooled system designed specifically to meet the RTG power requirements more cost effectively.

The first order is destined for Shanghai International Port Group and will be installed in Yidong Terminal, Shanghai.

Unlike conventional diesel electric port cranes, the CCCC hybrid version is powered primarily from the Corvus system resulting in fuel savings of up to 65 percent, says Corvus, with the added benefits of reduced operating costs with less greenhouse gas emissions and lower noise levels at the terminal.

Corvus makes industrial-grade lithium ion batteries that are used for making hybrid and electric ships, offshore drill rigs and port equipment. These batteries are combined into the diesel-electric drive trains of these industrial vehicles. The benefits are similar to the Prius and Tesla cars, (i.e. lower fuel consumption and emissions, better responsiveness and lower maintenance costs), but on a much larger scale because the industrial equipment has greater energy demands and generally work around the clock.

Gantry cranes are typically inefficient, running a diesel genset at full RPMs regardless of how much work they are actually doing. Therefore, during waiting, or low activity periods, a lot of fuel is wasted, says Corvus spokesman Sean Puchalski.

“Also, when they lower the containers, the electric motors spin backwards and generate energy. In a typical crane, this energy is wasted into heat by running it through a large resistor bank. The heat dissipates into the environment.

“Adding the battery helps in two ways: 1) it allows a smaller diesel engine to be installed, which saves fuel; and 2) the battery collects the energy from container lowering, for re-use, instead of wasting it. This improves fuel consumption.”

In addition to battery hybridization, some gantry cranes are being connected to the electrical grid to get completely off diesel gensets. This results in very good fuel cost improvements and also emission reductions, says Puchalski. However, this approach requires a large capital outlay for the electrical distribution and also reduces the mobility of the cranes.

The same types of technology are deployable around the globe. However, there are three main factors spurring the adoption of batteries in port equipment: 1) higher fuel prices; 2) busier ports; and 3) concerns about climate issues. These factors are strongest in China, Northern Europe and California at the moment, and this is where we will see the greatest early adoption, says Puchalski.

Stenersen's hybrid chemical tankers will feature energy storage solutions from WE Tech and Corvus

Stenersen’s hybrid chemical tankers will feature energy storage solutions from WE Tech and Corvus

Norwegian ship owner Rederiet Stenersen is building what are claimed to be the first tankers to feature hybrid electric propulsion, with WE Tech and Corvus Energy set to deliver the energy storage solution.

The owner is building two 17,500dwt chemical tankers (with an option for two more) at Taizhou Kouan Shipbuilding Co in China. The vessels will employ a direct drive permanent magnet shaft generator and an energy storage solution from WE Tech. Power generated through the shaft or supplied from shore connections will be converted to electricity and stored in a Corvus Orca Energy lithium-ion battery pack.

“As far as we are aware, Stenersen is the first company to have installed such equipment on this type of vessels,” said John Stenersen, director ship management, Rederiet Stenersen.

Stenersen noted that WE Tech’s Energy Storage Solution can be used as a spinning reserve to avoid black-out and to decrease the usage of generators on low load during manoeuvring. It can also be used for peak shaving, eliminating the need to start additional generator sets for short increase in loads and ensuring optimal running condition for online generator sets.

“Both situations create us savings from reduced generator running hours,” Stenersen added.

Halvard Hauso, senior vice president business development, Corvus Energy said: “This latest order from WE Tech Solutions shows the viability of energy storage for the hybridization of longer-haul vessels. As the cost of lithium ion batteries continues to improve we will see more and more applications beyond the traditional ferry and tug base.”

The first vessel, newbuild TK1201, is due for delivery in the first quarter of 2018. Steel cutting began on 10 November 2016. The WE Tech and Corvus equipment will be delivered in the second quarter of this year.

First hybrid ferry delivered for West Coast cargo service

First hybrid ferry delivered for West Coast cargo service

Seaspan Swift and Seaspan Reliant expected to reduce emissions by up to 20 per cent

By Deborah Wilson, CBC News

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/first-hybrid-ferry-delivered-for-west-coast-cargo-service-1.3907831

Cargo coming to Vancouver Island will soon have a lighter carbon footprint, according to the Richmond, B.C. company that supplied the battery system for North America’s first hybrid LNG and electricity powered cargo ferries.

The Seaspan Swift, which was delivered this month, will operate between the mainland and Vancouver Island.  A second ferry, the Seaspan Reliant, is due for delivery in early 2017.

The battery systems for the two vessels will provide backup power and are expected to cut fuel costs and emissions by 15 to 20 per cent.

Seaspan says it delivers 50 per cent of all cargo transported to Vancouver Island.

Richmond-based Corvus Energy provided the large lithium-ion battery system for the ferry.

Sean Puchalski, a vice president with Corvus Energy, told On the Island host Gregor Craigie that the conventional way of ensuring backup power is to have a second generator running all the time.

“Essentially, the ferry has LNG generators for its main propulsion and then it also has what most people would consider a rather large battery bank that serves mostly in this case as a spinning reserve,” Puchalski said.

“It helps to save fuel and therefore emissions and helps to make the vessel safer by providing backup power if necessary.”

Battery-only ferries in Europe

Hybrid ferries with a battery storage component are becoming more numerous in Europe, Puchalski said.

“There are some battery-only ferries now in Europe but it’s still a new thing, even over there.”

B.C. Ferry Services is also looking towards hybrid technology for its upcoming purchase of new smaller ferries, spokesperson Deborah Marshall said.

BC Ferries seeks hybrid proposals

“We will be looking for a hybrid solution for our new minor class vessels,” Marshall said.

B.C. Ferries plans to replace three minor vessels, the 43 year-old Nimpkish, the 58 year-old North Island Princess and the 52 year-old Howe Sound Queen.

Meanwhile, Marshall said, the first of BC Ferries’ new LNG-powered passenger vessels, the Salish Orca, is en route to the West Coast and passed through the Panama Canal on Sunday.

It is expected to arrive in B.C. in early January, replacing the 51-year-old Queen of Burnaby and providing service between Comox and Powell River.

Canadian ferry operator Seaspan Ferries takes delivery of the first of 5 Planned LNG-battery hybrid ferries

Richmond, BC – December 13, 2016 – Corvus Energy, congratulates Vancouver-based ferry operator Seaspan Ferries which recently took delivery of the first of two LNG-battery hybrid cargo ferries to be delivered in the next 12 months. The ‘Seaspan Swift’ is the first LNG-battery hybrid cargo ferry in North America. The vessel features two dual-fuel engines and a Corvus lithium ion energy storage system (ESS), which operates as spinning reserve and provides propulsion power for low-speed maneuvers.

The cargo ferry will be joined by a sister ship, Seaspan Reliant, in early 2017, after which the operator will order a further three ferries, according to Seaspan CEO Jonathan Whitworth. The 148m vessels, designed by Vard Marine, will have capacity for 59 truck trailers compared to the 30-40 trailer capacity of its existing seven vessels that have been in service for an average of 36 years.

Seaspan Ferries operates cargo-only services between Vancouver Island and the British Columbian mainland, carrying up to 800 trailers a day. The company delivers more than 50% of all products consumed on the island.

“We are proud to be working with Seaspan, a fellow Canadian company and an innovator in its business operations” said Andrew Morden, President and CEO of Corvus Energy. “Seaspan’s commitment to environmental sustainability is industry-leading and Corvus looks forward to working with them to integrate Corvus Energy ESS solutions into their future vessels.”

“Integrating the proven Corvus ESS technology into our new LNG-battery vessels will help us achieve our goal of minimizing the environmental impact of our operations, while reducing fuel consumption and operating costs,” said Jonathan Witworth, CEO Seaspan. “Corvus’ experience, industry leadership and safety record made it an easy decision to utilize their battery systems.”

New Hybrid Ferry uses Corvus Energy Lithium Ion Energy Storage System (ESS)

New Hybrid Ferry uses Corvus Energy Lithium Ion Energy Storage System (ESS)

Corvus Energy ESS powers newly named Scandlines M/V Copenhagen – the latest addition to the world’s largest fleet of hybrid ferries

Richmond, B.C – Nov 28, 2016 – Scandlines has named their newest hybrid ferry, the M/V Copenhagen. As part of Scandlines’ ambitious environmental strategy, the new hybrid ferry will join the world’s largest fleet of hybrid ferries, utilizing a low emission and fuel saving diesel electric hybrid propulsion system powered by a Corvus Energy ESS (Energy Storage System). The M/V Copenhagen is the sixth Scandlines hybrid ferry to utilize a Corvus ESS.

This new hybrid ferry will soon join its sister ship M/V Berlin, also powered by a Corvus ESS, in servicing the crossing between Rostock, Germany and Gedser, Denmark. The M/V Copenhagen is 169.5m long and 25.4m wide, providing double the capacity for vehicles (460 cars or 96 transport trucks), and the modern, spacious onboard facilities have enough space for 1,300 passengers. The main engines provide an output of 18,000kW, with a further 4,500kW available from the Corvus ESS. This results in a speed of 21 knots on the 1-hour 45 minutes long crossing.

Scandlines has gone to great lengths to ensure the M/V Copenhagen is environmentally friendly by utilizing technologies that increase fuel savings, significantly reduce emissions and greatly improve on-board energy efficiency. It uses an optimized propulsion system consisting of propellers and two thrusters, which can be rotated through 360 degrees and are used in narrow waterways or during maneuvers in port. On the emissions front, the M/V Copenhagen has four scrubbers which remove harmful substances from the exhaust gases such as sulphur oxides and fine particles.

Energy-saving solutions are utilized wherever possible to reduce the amount of energy required to run the vessel, including LED lighting throughout and the use of variable-frequency controls to optimize energy usage. When consumption is lower, excess energy is stored in the Corvus ESS. This energy is then released when consumption is higher than generator production.
