Corvus Energy wins service and maintenance contract for Scandlines’ hybrid ferry fleet

Global energy storage provider Corvus Energy has been contracted by German ferry operator Scandlines to supply long-term service and maintenance services for its entire fleet of hybrid ferries.

Global energy storage provider Corvus Energy has been contracted by German ferry operator Scandlines to supply long-term service and maintenance services for its entire fleet of hybrid ferries.

The ten-year deal covers traditional service and maintenance of the fleets’ energy storage systems, as well as Corvus’ Watchman remote condition-based monitoring service.

Scandlines’ current fleet of vessels includes large roll-on / off passenger (ROPAX) hybrid ferries, which operate using both traditional diesel fuel and advanced battery power.

The operator has been integrating Corvus’ lithium ion-based energy storage systems across its entire fleet.

Corvus Energy service and commissioning global head Ronald Hansen said: “We thank Scandlines for their continued confidence in our products and services as they execute their ambitious environmental strategy.

"Our advanced services and maintenance solutions will help ensure the Scandlines hybrid ferries operate reliably for many years to come."

“Supported by our highly experienced technical experts, our strong presence in the region and working closely with Scandlines, our advanced services and maintenance solutions will help ensure the Scandlines hybrid ferries operate reliably for many years to come.”

Scandlines launched its new M/V Berlin and M/V Copenhagen Corvus-powered hybrid ferries in February, under regular service on their Rostock-Gedser route between Denmark and Germany.

The new vessels have been able to reduce fuel consumption to almost one third, per crossing per car, compared to the previous ferries used on the same route.

Corvus Energy was selected to provide its lithium ion based energy storage systems (ESS) for two new polar expedition cruise vessels last month, which are being built for an undisclosed European expedition cruise operator.
