Corvus Energy to provide world’s largest ever hybrid propulsion marine battery pack for a Scandline diesel-electric ferry conversion.

Corvus will provide Scandline with a 2.7MWh power pack consisting of an AT6500 advanced lithium polymer battery system for a conversion in an existing diesel electric ferry that delivers significantly reduced greenhouse gas emissions, improved maintenance costs and optimized engine performance.

The ferry will be the first of its size and represents an early example of a change to greener transportation methods in the marine sector. Corvus’ AT6500 6.5kWh energy modules can be charged in 30 minutes by renewable, shore or generator power and do not emit any noise emissions.

Corvus’ lithium polymer energy storage solution is a cost effective alternative for hybrid ferries. It provides years of consistent and quality performance to meet the growing demand for more sophisticated, greener vessel systems. The batteries will last for more than 10 years, optimizing ROI by multiples given the long life of ferry vessels.

“The 2.7MWh of modules are the most reliable and safe battery in the world, designed to operate both house and driveline systems,” said Corvus Energy’s CEO Brent Perry. “Siemens, the integrator, is using this partnership opportunity as a template to develop a seamless, customer-­‐based solution for current and future ferry fleets around the world."

“Corvus’ complementary power optimizes the performance and extends the life of diesel power drivelines by up to three times,” said Siemens’ Ketil Aagesen, Sales Manager, Siemens AS, Industry Sector, Industry Solutions Division, Marine Solutions. “When it comes to power to replace diesel drivelines with no compromise in performance for specific applications, Corvus was the best choice."

The AT6500 modules allow vessel system integrators and designers an alternative source of high energy that creates the opportunity to re-­‐design systems to reduce system complexity and costs throughout the vessel.
