Wärtsilä selects Corvus Energy batteries for Finnlines ferries

Wärtsilä has selected Corvus Energy to supply energy storage systems for three new hybrid ferries for Finnlines, a Finish ferry operator. Designed for roll-on/roll-off cargo, each ferry has a length of 238 meters, a beam of 34 meters, a capacity of 5,800 lane-meters, and more than 5,000 meter-square of vehicle decks.

Built at Nanjing shipyard, the vessels are expected for delivery in 2021 for operation in the Baltic Sea.

Roger Rosvold, Senior VP of Sales at Corvus Energy, said, “There is significant potential for fuel and emissions reduction in roll-on/roll-off ships, as they are normally on fixed routes. Finnlines is at the forefront when it comes to innovation and sustainable operations. They have invested heavily in technology for all their vessels to reduce emissions.”
