Fishing and fish processing vessels are becoming increasingly sophisticated vessels. Like other marine segments, owners of fishing vessels are looking towards hybrid and all-electric propulsion systems to reduce their operating costs and environmental footprint.
Corvus ESSs have been deployed on some very impressive fishing vessels with impressive 25% fuel savings and 25%-40% reduction in emissions. These results were as expected. The owners were equally pleased with the benefits for the crew: reduced noise and vibration, and increased sense of safety due to battery backup power.
