Norwegian Electric Systems (NES) nominated Canada-based marine battery specialist Corvus Energy as supplier of an energy storage system for a new all-electric ferry due in late 2018.
Corvus Energy will thus deliver a 2.9MWh Orca Energy system to Fjellstrand who is currently building the vessel for Norwegian ferry operator Fjord1. Once completed, the ferry shall be able to transport 120 cars, 12 trucks and up to 296 passengers. It will serve the route Halhjem to Våge in Hordaland. Norway’s first all-electric ferry, the MF Ampere, has been put into operation in 2015.
