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.
