Corvus Energy wins both Supplier of the Year and Innovation of the Year at the 2017 Electric & Hybrid Marine World Expo Awards

Richmond, B.C. – June 13, 2017 – Corvus Energy has been awarded both ‘Supplier of the Year’ and ‘Innovation of the Year’ at the 2017 Electric & Hybrid Marine Awards being held at the Electric & Hybrid Marine World Expo. This is the third consecutive year that Corvus has received the Supplier of the Year award and a first time win for Innovation of the Year. The award recipients are decided up on by a panel of highly regarded industry experts.

“Battery technology is at the heart of electric and hybrid marine propulsion technology. Corvus is a true leader in this area and its growth and achievements in 2016 serve as a reminder of how important this company continues to be”, said awards panel judge Martyn Lasek, editor, Ship & Bunker.

The awards were presented to Willie Wagen, Corvus Energy Global VP of Sales & Marketing and Managing Director of Europe, on the final day of another very successful Electric & Hybrid Marine Expo taking place in Amsterdam. “The team at Corvus is very pleased to have been selected once again as Supplier of the Year and extremely proud to have also been awarded Innovation of the Year for the industry leading Orca ESS”, said Wagen. Adding, “over a year ago Corvus set out to design and develop the world’s best energy storage system. The result of that was Orca ESS, the safest, highest performing, and most cost effective ESS for all-electric and hybrid applications. Orca ESS is accelerating the transition to electrification for many operators and ship owners. No other firm understands this technology and industry better than Corvus and we have the greatest number of installations & upcoming projects to prove it.”

Further recognition from awards judges: “Corvus’ exceptional growth and high spending on R&D merit recognition for a third consecutive year as the company’s innovative solutions, and especially the Orca ESS, gain rapid acceptance among customers” – Jack O’Connell, senior editor, The Maritime Executive.

Following the successful launch of Orca ESS at the Electric & Hybrid Marine World Expo one year ago, Corvus has won over 2 dozen new projects totalling over 15MWh that will utilize Orca ESS. In total, Corvus Energy has deployed 70+ installations with over 43MWh installed and now exceeding 1 million operating hours. Corvus has unsurpassed experience and knowledge that enables revolutionary innovation.

“Corvus has shown again why it is at the forefront of one of the fastest-growing maritime sectors. An impressive performance that bodes well for the future for the company”, concluded Rich Miller, managing editor, Professional Mariner and American Ship Review.

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.

With the industry’s highest C-Rates, unparalleled density and increased lifespan, Orca ESS solutions are designed to scale for applications of all sizes, up to and beyond 10MWh, at a lower total cost of ownership.

In addition to the superior performance and economic advantages, the purpose-built Orca product line also includes industry leading innovations related to safety and operations. Among those innovations, both Orca Energy and Orca Power feature patented-pending technology that delivers cell-level thermal runaway isolation. This unprecedented level of safety is standard across the Orca ESS product line and does not require active cooling techniques, such as liquid cooling for it to be effective. Additional innovations such as ‘blind-mate’ power connections contained within the rack, eliminate the need for cables and manual connections resulting in enhanced reliability, increased safety and reduced installation costs.
