Corvus’ energy storage system for Far Sun PSV

Corvus Energy’s Orca energy storage system (ESS) has been selected to provide battery power to one of Farstad Shipping’s platform supply vessels (PSVs).

Corvus Energy said it would supply a lithium ion based energy storage system (ESS) for the hybridization of Farstad Shipping’s PSV Far Sun being integrated by Vard Electro during in the second half of 2017.

The company added that the energy storage system would be utilized during all aspects of the PSV’s operation, particularly during dynamic positioning and harbor operations where fuel consumption and emissions would be significantly reduced.

“Equally important to Farstad and Statoil, who maintains a long-term charter for the PSV, the ESS will increase safety through the provision of spinning reserve for improved response time as well as increased redundancy,” the company added.

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

Christian Søvik, VP of global services of Vard Electro, said: “The energy storage system will provide significant savings for Farstad and Statoil over time, enabling the ship to more efficiently utilize 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.”

To remind, Corvus’ Orca ESS was also chosen by Wärtsilä to provide battery power to Eidesvik’s Viking Princess.
