Canadian-Norwegian energy storage solutions provider Corvus Energy has decided to expand its battery production capacities both in Canada and Norway.

Corvus announced two production and R&D expansion plans underway in Canada and Norway.

According to the company, the new battery factories will be be modern and automated, resulting in eight times the production capacity compared to today.

The Corvus Energy factory in the Vancouver region will be expanded and upgraded to house a 200 MWh semi-automated battery production facility. A new product R&D, design, and engineering facility will also be developed. The expansion is expected to be completed by the beginning of 2019.

Also, a 400 MWh fully automated factory and a new marine system testing and development facility will be built in the Bergen region of Norway to fulfill strong growth in the Norwegian market resulting from new ferry tenders and high demand for hybrid energy systems in the offshore and shipping sectors.

The new factory, test, and development facilities are expected to be completed by the summer of 2019.

Geir Bjørkeli, CEO of Corvus Energy, said: “There is an electric revolution going on in the maritime sector, and we want to deliver the best solutions in the industry. These strategic locations of our R&D and production facilities will enable us to quickly test and develop new systems that can meet the future needs of the industry.”

 

Maritime industry cluster

Corvus Energy is a partner in the NCE Maritime CleanTech industry cluster which is assisting with consultancy and project development in the planning phase of the Norwegian factory.

Hege Økland, CEO of NCE Maritime CleanTech, said: “We have a strong maritime cluster in Western Norway, and the Corvus facility will strengthen our position as a global hub within maritime environmental technology.

“With a battery factory in the Bergen area, the industry will have close access to core products that are vital to ensuring that shipping is more environmentally friendly and more profitable for the ship owners.”

“It will be natural for us to link our R&D activities with other relevant R&D institutions. In this way we can strengthen the cooperation between industry players and research institutions, which will be beneficial to all parties,” added Bjørkeli.
