Corvus Energy Opens A New Battery Factory In Norway

On 6 September, Corvus Energy celebrated the grand opening of its automated battery factory in Bergen, Norway.

“There is an electric revolution going on in the maritime sector, and we want to deliver the best solutions in the industry,” says Geir Bjørkeli, CEO of Corvus Energy. “The Corvus team in Vancouver developed the groundbreaking battery solution that accelerated adoption of zero-emission and hybrid marine propulsion systems, particularly in Norway. With so many of our customers and partners in Norway, it only made sense to add production capacity here, which gives us flexibility and will speed deliveries. Further, automated production will help the Corvus ESSs remain price-competitive.”

Corvus Energy Launches New Battery For Cruise, Ro-Pax And Ro-Ro Ships With Unlimited Capacity

Corvus Energy, the well-known supplier of batteries for hybrid and zero-emission vessels, is introducing its next generation Energy Storage System (ESS), called ‘Corvus Blue Whale’. It is ideal for applications that require low charge/discharge rate combined with very high energy demand such as Cruise, Ro-Pax and Ro-Ro vessels.

By using energy-dense battery cells and a space-saving design, its volume per kWh is reduced by 50% and the weight per kWh is reduced by amazing 30%. Its modular design uses quick connectors for easy commissioning and reduced installation costs.

Corvus Blue Whale has no limitations with regards to size.
