Canadian manufacturer of energy storage systems Corvus Energy is to launch a new battery for cruise ships, Ro-Pax and Ro-Ro with unlimited capacity.

The company explained that its next generation Energy Storage System (ESS), named Corvus Blue Whale, is ideal for applications that require low charge/discharge rate combined with very high energy demand.

The development comes ahead of stricter rules and regulations facing the cruise and ferry industry, along with an increasing demand from passengers for green transportation solutions.

“When we launched the Corvus Orca Energy in 2016, we set a new standard for performance, safety and economics in a maritime ESS,” Geir Bjørkeli, CEO of Corvus Energy, said.

“Our goal is for Corvus Blue Whale to have a similar impact on maritime decarbonization,” he continued.

Like the Corvus Orca Energy, the new Corvus Blue Whale design uses passive air-cooling and incorporates Corvus’ patented single-cell thermal isolation to achieve the highest safety standard in the industry.
