Corvus Energy is expanding its battery production facilities in Canada and building a new factory in Norway to keep up with a growth in demand.

The new battery factories will be more modern and more automated than other similar factories and will result in eight times the production capacity compared to today.

“There is an electric revolution going on in the maritime sector, and we want to deliver the best solutions in the industry,” said Geir Bjørkeli, CEO of Corvus Energy.

Strategic

Mr Bjørkeli pointed out that the strategic locations of the new R&D and production facilities will enable it to quickly test and develop new systems that can meet the future needs of the industry.

“Further, by switching from manual processing to automated production, we will increase production capacity and remain price-competitive,” he added.

The Corvus Energy factory in Canada will be expanded and upgraded to house a 200 MWh semi-automated battery production facility. A new product R&D, design and engineering facility will also be developed. The expansion is expected to be completed by the beginning of 2019.

In addition, a 400 MWh fully automated factory and a new marine system testing and development facility will be built in the Bergen region of Norway to fulfill strong growth in the Norwegian market resulting from new ferry tenders and high demand for hybrid energy systems in the offshore and shipping sectors.

The new factory, test and development facilities are expected to be completed by the summer of 2019.

Corvus develops and sells specially designed battery storage solutions for the maritime and oil and gas sectors and is a world-leading supplier of batteries for ships.
