Corvus Energy delights in to introduce that the business has actually been picked by Holland Ship Electric to provide lithium-ion battery-based power storage space systems (ESS) for 5 brand-new all-electric ferryboats being developed by Holland Shipyard Group for Amsterdam’s local public transportation supplier, GVB.
The ferryboats will certainly operate 3 of the North Sea Canal paths, changing the present fleet integrated in the 1930s. The paths in the North Sea Canal are among the busiest paths, moving greater than 350 000 automobiles yearly.
The substitute of the ferryboats remains in line with the sustainability objectives established by GVB as well as the Municipality of Amsterdam to offer zero-emission public transportation in the Municipality of Amsterdam as well as environments. The objective of GVB’s considerable newbuilding as well as retrofit program is that the whole fleet will certainly be hybrid or totally electrical by 2025.
“Corvus Energy is very proud to be selected as supplier for these prestigious projects and to contribute to huge emissions savings in the North Sea Canal,” claims Kim Strate Kiegstad, Vice President Sales atCorvus Energy He proceeds, “We see that the adoption rate for maritime Energy Storage Systems is increasing significantly across the globe – and especially in Europe. In every market, this is a process that needs to mature. Companies such as GVB leading by example will help local shipbuilding and shipowners increase their level of knowledge of the technology and its benefits. We do expect that almost every future newbuild will have some kind of energy efficiency solution included.”
As the leading producer of Energy Storage Systems for maritime applications, Corvus Energy offers battery power to even more ferryboats than all various other carriers of power storage space systems incorporated. Beginning with the initial zero-emission ferryboat, Ampere, Corvus Energy’s ESSs have actually currently been picked for near to 100 crossbreed as well as all-electric ferryboats worldwide.
All 5 brand-new all-electric ferryboats are of the Ijveer layout as well as will certainly be integrated in Holland Shipyard Group in theNetherlands Each ferryboat is 41 meters in size, is 13,9 meters large, holds 20 automobiles, 4 vehicles or 400 guests. The ferryboats will certainly be furnished with air-cooled Corvus Orca Energy ESS that will provide electric power to the ferryboat’s all-electric power as well as propulsion system.
The initially brand-new ferryboat will certainly get here in the summer season of 2021. After that, one will certainly get here every 6 months, up until 2023.
