Corvus Energy to provide energy storage systems to five Fjord1 vessels

Corvus Energy has secured a contract from Norwegian Electric Systems (NES) to provide lithium ion battery-based energy storage systems (ESS) for five new electric ferries to be operated by Norway’s Fjord1.

Corvus Energy has secured a contract from Norwegian Electric Systems (NES) to provide lithium ion battery-based energy storage systems (ESS) for five new electric ferries to be operated by Norway’s Fjord1.

Delivery of the air-cooled Corvus Orca Energy ESS is scheduled to take place this year. The ESS will supply electrical power to the ferry’s propulsion system developed by NES.

Havyard Shipyard will build the ferries at its facility in Leirvik, Sogn, Norway.

The vessels will feature Havyard 932 design and are expected to start operations on four new routes in Norway from January 2020.

The 67m-long ferries will be designed to carry 50 cars.

NES Sales senior vice-president Stein Ruben Larsen said: “Fjord1 continues to forge a very progressive path towards environmentally sustainable operations with these additional all-electric ferries.

“The proven reliability, safety and performance of the Corvus ESS was important in awarding this contract to Corvus Energy.”

Corvus Energy has provided ESSs for eight Fjord1 electric ferries that were deployed to serve four Norwegian coastal routes.

Corvus Energy Technical Sales Support team leader Tommy Sletten said: “It is a pleasure to work with the technical team at NES.

“They are highly experienced in integrating batteries into electric power and propulsion systems and we easily get all the information we need to calculate the energy storage capacity correctly.”

In November, Corvus Energy was selected by ACEL to provide the Corvus Orca ESS for a newbuild fishing vessel.
