Stena Line and Callenberg select Corvus Energy for Battery-Powered Ferry

1 MWh Corvus energy storage enables emissions-free berthing of Stena Jutlandica—a first for a Swedish-operated ferry

Richmond, British Columbia, Canada – April 3, 2018 – Corvus Energy is pleased to announce that it has been selected by Stena Line and Callenberg Technology Group to supply the lithium ion-based Energy Storage System (ESS) for the battery-power retrofit of M/V Stena Jutlandica.

Stena Line will be the first Swedish ferry operator to operate a ferry with zero emissions while berthing and in port. Stena Jutlandica is a combined passenger and freight ferry—or Ro-Pax ferry—operating between Gothenburg, Sweden and Frederikshavn, Denmark. The project is co-financed by the European Union and Swedish Transport Administration.

This initial stage of the retrofit employs plug-in hybrid technology that charges with shore power and draws on battery power for bow thrusters and maneuvering when berthing in port. The ultimate goal is for the Stena Jutlandica to operate fully on battery power, requiring an estimated 50 MWh of stored energy for the 3 hours and 25-minute crossing. Shore power from clean energy sources is also an important focus area.

Stena Teknik, Stena’s marine technical solutions branch, is working with electrical system integrator Callenberg, part of Trident Maritime Systems, to incorporate the Corvus Energy battery—a 1 MWh capacity Orca Energy™ ESS.

“The project has been received very positively by maritime and Swedish transportation authorities,” says Per Wimby, Project Manager at Stena Teknik. “We look forward to gathering knowledge about electric operation and continuing to explore the role that battery operation can play as an alternative to traditional fuel and eliminating emissions.”

“We are impressed with Corvus Energy’s battery technology and the company’s track record in the maritime industry,” says Per-Erik Larsson, Director Sales at Callenberg.

“The Stena Jutlandica will be a showcase ship whose impact extends beyond the boundaries of Scandinavia and the passenger ferry industry,” says Halvard Hauso, SVP, Sales and Key Accounts at Corvus Energy. “We are excited about working with the talented people at Stena Teknik, Callenberg, and Stena Line to bring their visions of sustainable shipping to fruition.”

Corvus Energy to power all hybrid PSVs in the Gulf of Mexico

Corvus Energy to power all hybrid PSVs in the Gulf of Mexico

News Release

Orca ESS from Corvus Energy has been selected to provide battery power for 3 additional SEACOR platform supply vessels

Richmond, B.C. – February 27, 2018 – Corvus Energy is pleased to announce that it has been selected by SEACOR Marine and Rolls-Royce to provide lithium ion-based energy storage systems (ESS) for 3 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 will 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 will also significantly reduce operational costs, including fuel and energy maintenance.

With these latest project wins, the Corvus Orca ESS will be providing battery power to seven SEACOR hybrid PSVs and 100% 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”, says 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 environmental and energy efficiency benefits.”

As the leading manufacturer of energy storage systems for maritime applications, Corvus continues to lead the industry with 100+ projects utilizing a Corvus ESS, now totaling over 75MWh and 1.5 million operating hours.

Orca ESS from Corvus Energy has been selected to provide battery power to 4 SEACOR platform supply vessels

Richmond, B.C. – February 26, 2018 – Corvus Energy is pleased to announce that it has been selected by SEACOR Marine and Kongsberg Maritime as the supplier of lithium ion-based energy storage systems (ESS) for 4 platform supply vessels (PSVs) being retrofitted with a state-of-the-art hybrid power system. The Orca Energy ESS from Corvus will supply electrical power to the PSVs’ propulsion and dynamic positioning system’s electrical network to enable safe, environmentally-friendly and lower cost operations.

All 4 PSVs are owned by Mantenimiento Express Marítimo SAPI de CV (“MEXMAR”), SEACOR Marine’s joint venture in Mexico. A Corvus Orca ESS will first be added to the SEACOR Maya PSV, which is due to have its retrofit completed this month. By July 2018, hybrid power retrofits will be completed for three additional Mexico-based SEACOR vessels: the SEACOR Azteca, SEACOR Warrior and SEACOR Viking. 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 will also significantly reduce operational costs, including fuel & maintenance on the engines.

“We are confident in the energy saving and safety elements of the Corvus Orca ESS for SEACOR Maya and keen to start migration of more of our vessels to this unique, environmentally friendly and highly efficient power solution,” said Tim Clerc, Manager of Engineering, SEACOR Marine.

“Corvus is proud to be a key partner in SEACOR’s commitment to the environment and their goal of sustainable and energy efficient operations”, says Halvard Hauso, Senior Vice President of Sales at Corvus Energy. “Utilizing an Orca ESS as part of the Kongsberg hybrid solution, these PSVs will become the first hybrid PSVs in the Americas to help clients meet strict environmental regulations for reducing NOx, SOx and CO2 emissions.”

As the leading manufacturer of energy storage systems for maritime applications, Corvus continues to lead the industry with 100+ projects utilizing a Corvus ESS, now totaling over 75MWh and 1.5 million operating hours.
