In Norway, people talk about the ferry revolution . It all started with the world famous all-electric ferry Ampere , which has now sailed a distance equal to seven times around the globe, saving 4,500,000 Liters of fuel and saving almost 8100 tons of CO2. It has been a huge success and Norway`s goal is that all ferries should be electric by 2025.
Corvus Energy has delivered ESSs to almost 60 similar ferries – hybrid and all-electric
Hybrid Car Ferries typically use energy Storage systems (ESS) for
- Optimized energy consumption by load levelling
- Maneuvering into port and in shallow waters
- Zero emission in port
- Increased safety and reliability – including black-out prevention
- Reduced fuel consumtion
- Reduced emissions
- Reduced maintenance
The ESS solution is suitable for both retrofit and newbuild. The Corvus Orca Energy is ideal for this application enabling high energy density and high charge and discharge rate . Visit products to learn more.
