Corvus Energy, a supplier of energy storage systems (ESSs) to the maritime industry, has been selected as the ESS provider for five new electric ferries to be operated by Norwegian company Fjord1. Corvus will provide its lithium-ion battery-based ESSs to electrical systems integrator Norwegian Electric Systems (NES), which will provide the power and propulsion system to the ferries’ manufacturer, Havyard.
Each of the five new Fjord1 ferries will be 67 meters long and capable of holding 50 cars. Each will be supplied by Corvus’s Orca Energy ESS, to be delivered to NES in 2019. The ferries are expected to be operational in Norway by January 1, 2020.
Corvus Energy has provided ESSs to over 40 short-distance hybrid and all-electric ferries globally, including eight Fjord1 electric ferries operating on four Norwegian coastal routes.
“Corvus Energy is honored to once again be selected by NES to provide Energy Storage Systems for Fjord1 ferries,” said Roger Rosvold, VP of Sales at Corvus Energy. “NES are skilled and experienced electrical system integrators, and our close partnership with them in designing and delivering these innovative solutions is key to accelerating the adoption of energy storage systems.”
