Scandlines’ new hybrids will use a 2.7MWh ESS consisting of Corvus Energy’s AT6500 advanced lithium polymer batteries integrated with Siemens drive systems. The newly refit hybrid ferries will deliver significantly reduced greenhouse gas emissions, improved maintenance costs and optimised engine performance resulting in greatly decreased operating expenses. The integrated system will last for more than 10 years, optimising ROI by multiples given the long life of ferry vessels. The adaptable modular Corvus ESS allows vessel system integrators and designers an alternative source of high energy that creates the opportunity to re-design systems to reduce system complexity and costs throughout the vessel.
