6.1 MW/h batteries for Havila Kystruten’s hybrid cruise vessels

Canada’s Corvus Energy has announced a contract with Norwegian Electric Systems (NES) for the battery package to be installed on board Havila Kystruten’s new cruise vessels. These are four 125 long nd 20m wide vessels that will operate on the Bergen-Kirkenes coastal route. Two will be built by Turkish shipbuilder Tersan, two by Spain’s Barreras.

 

The vessels will have a hybrid gas-electric propulsion system with battery, where four gas-powered engines in each vessel run the generators. “The system is also adapted to the next generation of technology, using hydrogen fuel cells,” said Corvus.

 

“The Energy Storage System has a capacity per vessel of 6,100 kWh, which is double the capacity of any existing battery-operated ferries,” said Roger Rosvold, Vice President Sales at Corvus Energy. “The unused potential for using batteries on board cruise and passenger ferries is huge. Batteries reduce fuel consumption and maintenance costs, cut pollution and, with increasing environmental regulations and requirements that will incur costs for air emissions, provide a very compelling business case. As more and more shipowners wake up to this, we expect to see uptake accelerating across the board. The industry is just starting to understand the power of batteries.”

 

“This is a big step for the cruising industry and we are extremely proud to receive this order. It demonstrates that we drive technology further by pushing boundaries for the use of batteries. The Energy Storage System (ESS) is the world’s largest package ever delivered to a ship and will enable the vessels to enter fjords and ECAs on zero emission mode five years before the deadline,” said Geir Bjørkeli, CEO of Corvus Energy.

 

Corvus Energy will deliver an air-cooled ESS with its patented single-cell thermal isolation, which exceeds class requirements, to ensure the highest level of safety. “There is no one-size-fits-all solution for batteries.You have to optimize and compromise to find the the right balance between energy density, capacity, performance and lifecycle to ensure the most optimal ESS solution,” said Stein Ruben Larsen, Senior Vice President Sales at NES, a total system integrator of electric systems for the global maritime market. “We chose Corvus Energy due to the proven reliability, safety and performance of the Corvus ESS, in addition to their experience and the high level of technical support provided through previous project deliveries to NES. We know we are getting the best ESS available in the market.”
