Corvus Energy awarded Fannefjord LNG hybrid ferry contract

Corvus Energy, Siemens and Fjord1 have been awarded the contract for the Fannefjord LNG hybrid ferry.

The refit Fannefjord will use a 1050V, 410kWh Energy Storage System (ESS) consisting of 63 Corvus Energy AT6500 advanced lithium polymer batteries. The ESS will be integrated with the existing Siemens drive systems and be powered by two LNG generators.

The 123m Fannefjord, sister ship to the vessel Moldefjord, has a capacity of 390 passengers and 125 cars or 12 road trailers and 55 cars. Typically LNG-diesel-electric ferries of this design, feature one diesel engine and two LNG-fuelled main engines. The conversion of the already efficient and clean LNG ferry to a battery hybrid form will reduce “methane slip” and deliver even further reduced greenhouse gas emissions, fuel-efficiency, improved maintenance costs and optimized engine performance.

Sean Puchalski, Vice President Business Development, Corvus Energy, said “Based on our research, the Fannefjord will be the world’s first LNG battery hybrid ferry in operation.”

Corvus’ lithium polymer energy storage technology is an effective solution for hybridization of commercial LNG powered vessels. It provides the consistent power and reliability to support the specific performance attributes of LNG powered vessels.
