Corvus Energy will supply battery power for the hybridisation of Farstad Shipping’s PSV 'Far Sun' to reduce emissions and lower operating costs.

The lithium ion based energy storage system, Orca ESS, will supply electrical power to the PSV’s propulsion system electrical network to enable environmentally-friendly and lower cost operations.

“As we have experienced with many vessel types, the Orca ESS is ideally suited for the hybridisation of the Far Sun PSV”, said Ronald Hansen, global service manager of Corvus Energy.

“Through close collaboration with Vard, our teams have developed a lean solution which meets the aggressive environmental, safety, performance and operating cost objectives of Farstad and Statoil.”

The energy storage system will be utilised during all aspects of the PSV’s operation, particularly during dynamic positioning and harbour operations where fuel consumption and emissions will be significantly reduced at sea and in port.

“The energy storage system will provide significant savings for Farstad and Statoil over time, enabling the ship to more efficiently utilise energy produced by the generators, as well as simplifying the use of shore power.”

This will substantially reduce consumption and emissions. Another effect is less noise from ships in port,” said Christian Søvik, VP global services, Vard Electro.

To date, Corvus has completed more than 80 marine installations utilising a Corvus ESS, totalling over 45MWh and 1 million operating hours.
