Corvus Energy wins the Excellence in Product Innovation at the Technology Impact Awards

Richmond, B.C. – June 26, 2017 – Corvus is pleased to announce that it has received the award of Excellence in Product Innovation at the annual Technology Impact Awards (TIA), sponsored by the British Columbia Tech Association. Corvus won the prestigious award for their industry leading energy storage system (ESS), Orca ESS.

The TIAs are the longest-running and largest technology award program in BC, celebrating the successes of the tech industry and the companies, people and innovation that continue to put British Columbia on the map.

“The Corvus team is very honored to receive this award”, said Andrew Morden, President & CEO of Corvus Energy. “An immense amount of innovation went into the design and development of the Orca ESS portfolio. The result is a revolutionary energy storage solution that is safer, more reliable, and more cost effective than anything else in the industry. This allows our customers to accelerate the shift to electrification of their maritime applications such as the hybridization of ferries, offshore supply vessels, cruise ships and port equipment.”

This latest industry recognition for Corvus comes just two weeks after taking home industry awards for both Supplier of the Year and Innovation of the Year at the Electric & Hybrid Marine World Expo in Amsterdam. Both awards were based on the success and traction the Orca ESS portfolio has achieved in a very short period of time.

Following the successful launch of Orca ESS one year ago, Corvus has won over 2 dozen new projects totalling over 18MWh that will utilize Orca ESS. In total, Corvus Energy has deployed 80+ installations with over 45MWh installed and now exceeding 1 million operating hours. Corvus has unsurpassed experience and knowledge that enables revolutionary innovation.

About Orca ESS

The Orca ESS product line was specifically designed and built to meet the needs of maritime applications at the industry’s highest levels of performance and safety, while making economic sense to ship owners and builders. No other maritime ESS has been designed with as much real field experience and performance data than Orca has.

Rather than a single product approach, the Orca ESS product line delivers a range of products which are designed to meet the various needs of maritime customers. Orca Energy is ideal for applications that require large amounts of energy such as ferries and merchant vessels, while Orca Power was designed for applications that require a seamless response to dynamic power loads such as offshore supply vessels and port equipment.
