Offshore operations depend on specialized offshore support vessels (OSV) to transport equipment and crew to platforms, as well as aid in construction. Fuel-efficient hybrid vessels are increasingly in high demand as charterers look for ways to lower their costs and their environmental impact.
Corvus ESSs have been deployed aboard platform supply vessels (PSV), construction vessels, multipurpose support vessels (MPSV), and shuttle tankers. They dramatically improve fuel efficiency in operations with high power load variability, such as dynamic positioning or transit in rough seas, by peak shaving and load levelling. The ESSs can also be used for spinning reserve and battery backup power.
With emissions regulations tightening worldwide, integrating ESSs into the battery-hybrid power systems of offshore support vessels is effective for fuel conservation and emissions reduction.
