Corvus Energy announced that Seaspan Ferries has selected Corvus Energy to supply a 2034 kWh Orca Energy system for each of its newbuild LNG-battery hybrid ferries currently under construction. Seaspan will also operate the new Ro-Ro ferries on its coastal routes in British Columbia. The Corvus batteries will contribute to significant reduction in emissions, fewer running hours on the engines, and faster response to load variations.

The batteries will be delivered through Aspin Kemp and Associates, a Canadian company that designs, manufactures, installs and supports innovative power generation and energy management solutions for marine and land-based industries in strategic partnership with MAN Energy Solutions.

The Corvus Orca Energy system is Type Approved by Bureau Veritas and holds the highest standard of safety within the industry. DNV GL, ABS and RINA have also acknowledged the technology by issuing Type or Class Approval certificates for the Corvus Orca Energy system.

This is the second pair of ferries that Seaspan has equipped with Corvus batteries. Seaspan Reliant and Seaspan Swift went into operation in 2017. The 546 kWh Corvus batteries saved Seaspan the cost of an additional engine for spinning reserve, as well as improved fuel efficiency by 9%-10%.
