Corvus works with Nordlaks for a new live fish carrier
Corvus Energy announced that BMA Technology in Turkey has chosen to supply the lithium-ion battery-based energy storage (ESS) system for a new Live Fish Carrier to be installed at Tersan Shipyard, Turkey.
This is the second Norwegian salmon and trout producer vessel in a series of two, Nordlaks. Corvus Energy also supplied the ESS to Bjørg Pauline, launched recently from Tersan Shipyard.
The NSK Design 4126 LNG HYBRID is one of the most efficient and advanced of their kind. The vessel is 84 meters long and 19 meters wide, and includes a built-in redundancy LNG hybrid propulsion.
In addition to many other advantages for versatile and secure transports, the vessel is ice-strengthened to ice class 1A and has shore links for port service. Estimated savings are 1864 tons of CO2 per annum (equals 30 per cent) in addition to cost reduction of 30 per cent.
"Due to slow response and long recovery time of LNG generators, ESS installation on the vessel will serve to guarantee safe and optimal operation, especially during fast load changes. The battery package will be used for peak shaving, spinning reserve, zero-emission operation during low load and to reduce impact of start currents,” says Akın Artun, Technology Division Director of BMA Technolog
Corvus Energy will supply the vessel with a 678 kWh battery system, and the equipment is scheduled for delivery in September 2020. The vessel will be shipped to Nordlaks in February according to schedule.
