Corvus Energy has delivered most of the ESSs in the world’s electric and hybrid ferry and Ro-Pax fleet.
Ferry and Ro-Pax operators face stricter environmental regulations. With shore charging, local emissions from ships can be reduced or eliminated entirely. In ports where shore charging is not available, a ferry can operate as a battery hybrid and still provide plenty of benefits. The ESS can level the loads on the diesel engines, provide black-out support and emergency power, and even replace a genset. This contributes to reducing the amount of harmful emissions in ports while at the same time benefiting the ship owner, who can save substantial costs for fuel and maintenance.
Corvus Energy has extensive experience with installing and servicing ESS in ferries globally. We have supplied systems ranging from 60 kWh on a small all-electric passenger ferry crossing the Aurajoki river in Finland to 5,500 kWh for large hybrid Ro-Pax of 250 m length.
