Corvus Energy to supply ESS for 20 battery-hybrid RTG port cranes

Corvus Energy has secured a contract from CCCC Shanghai Equipment Engineering (CCCCSEE) to supply the energy storage systems (ESS) for 20 battery-hybrid rubber-tyred gantry cranes (RTG).

Corvus Energy has secured a contract from CCCC Shanghai Equipment Engineering (CCCCSEE) to supply the energy storage systems (ESS) for 20 battery-hybrid rubber-tyred gantry cranes (RTG).

RTG cranes are currently under construction by CCCCSEE and its affiliate ZPMC.

Corvus Energy has recently supplied 48 RTG cranes through CCCCSEE.

The company will handle the latest order through its new Corvus Energy Asia office located in Singapore.

Hybrid port cranes will cut emissions at Chinese ports and are powered primarily from the Corvus battery package, resulting in fuel savings of up to 65%. They also reduce operating costs, greenhouse gas emissions and noise levels at the terminal.

CCCCSEE chief engineer Gao Jianzhong said: “Corvus Energy has definitely shifted the economics and viability of converting diesel port equipment to battery-hybrid electric with their Orca Energy systems.

“Through previous deliveries, they have proven that the performance, durability and reliability of its battery systems are ideally suited to the demands of our port equipment.”

“Corvus Energy has definitely shifted the economics and viability of converting diesel port equipment to battery-hybrid electric.”

The Orca Energy ESS stores regenerative braking energy and will use it to power the RTG crane during trolley and gantry movement operations.

Corvus Energy Asia Sales vice-president Pradeep Datar said: “We expect the market for battery-hybrid RTG crane applications will continue to grow as leading port equipment suppliers such as CCCCSEE prove the technology’s efficacy to significantly reduce emissions.

“Corvus technology continues to provide solutions for progressive port operators worldwide who seek to increase efficiencies while reducing emissions and the environmental impact of their operations.”

The company secured a contract from Norwegian Electric Systems (NES) in January to provide lithium-ion battery-based ESS for five new electric ferries to be operated by Norway’s Fjord1.
