Ferry contract

Industry Database

Canadian lithium ion battery specialist Corvus Energy has been awarded a long-term contract to provide service and maintenance to Scandlines’ hybrid ferry fleet.

The comprehensive 10-year contract includes both traditional service and maintenance of the fleets’ energy storage systems, plus Corvus’ remote condition-based monitoring service, Watchman(TM).

Demonstrating their unequalled leadership in environmental sustainability, Scandlines was the first ferry operator to build and operate large ROPAX (roll-on/off passenger) hybrid ferries that combine traditional diesel power with advanced battery power. Scandlines utilizes Corvus’ lithium-ion based energy storage systems throughout the entire fleet to provide the battery power.

On February 5th 2017, Scandlines put their two newest Corvus powered hybrid ferries, the M/V Berlin and M/V Copenhagen, into regular service on their Rostock-Gedser route between Denmark and Germany. Along with the decreased environmental impact, the fuel consumption of the vessels has been reduced to almost one third per crossing per car compared to the previous ferries used on the same route.

Corvus Energy provides high power energy storage in the form of modular lithium ion battery systems. Its purpose built, field proven battery systems provide sustained power to hybrid and fully electric heavy industrial equipment, including port equipment and large marine propulsion drives.
