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.

Corvus Energy and BAE Systems Collaborate on Their Third Hybrid Vessel Project, a Tall ship for the Educational Tall Ship Program

Corvus Energy and BAE Systems Collaborate on Their Third Hybrid Vessel Project, a Tall ship for the Educational Tall Ship Program

The Educational Tall Ship Program orders Energy Storage System from Corvus Energy for its new 132-foot brigantine tall ship, the Matthew Turner

Richmond, B.C. – November 2, 2016 – The San Francisco Bay Area nonprofit, Educational Tall Ship Program has ordered a 100kWh energy storage system (ESS) from Corvus Energy as a part of a hybrid electric propulsion system on board its new, 132-foot Brigantine tall ship, the Matthew Turner, which is currently under construction in Sausalito.

The Educational Tall Ship Program together with a sister organization, Call of the Sea, are both dedicated to utilizing tall ships to provide on-the-water education for local students, including classes in sailing, marine ecology and maritime history. The Matthew Turner will be the second tall ship in the fleet, joining the 82-foot Schooner Seaward.

The Corvus Energy ESS will be combined with an electric propulsion system designed and installed by BAE Systems.  When not under sail, the ship will be propelled by electric motors directly connected to the propeller shafts and drawing energy from the Corvus ESS, instead of diesel engines. When the ship is under sail, the energy of the passing water will cause the propellers to rotate, which, in turn, will cause the electric motors to become generators that re-charge the Corvus ESS. The ship will also be charged from the grid and solar panels when at the dock.

“Corvus and BAE Systems have been collaborating together on developing power and propulsion systems that are more fuel efficient, providing ship owners with a lower cost of ownership, and reducing the impact on the environment,” says Allan Grant, vice president of Business Development at Corvus Energy. “We are very pleased to work with BAE Systems on this project for Educational Tall Ship. It is a truly inspirational organization and we are proud to be a part of this unique project.”

“Our ongoing collaboration with Corvus Energy adds significant value to our hybrid system programs, and we look forward to continuing that work,” said Yesh Premkumar, project manager of Fuel Cell and Maritime Programs at BAE Systems.

“Educational Tall Ship sees the Corvus ESS as a key piece of the Matthew Turner, which will help us achieve our innovative vision,” said Alan Olson, executive director, Educational Tall Ship.  “The electric drive on the vessel will visibly demonstrate to the youth how it is possible to marry old and new technology to create something unique, useful and environmentally sustainable.”
