Corvus to supply batteries for LNG Canada tugs

Norway’s Corvus Energy has won a contract to deliver batteries to three tugs that will serve the Shell-operated LNG Canada project in Kitimat.

The order is one of the largest in Corvus’ history, but it also marks the 500th project order for the firm, Corvus said in a statement.

Under the contract, Corvus would supply the 5,288 kWh batteries for each of the three “zero-emission” harbor tugs, it said.

Corvus did not disclose the price tag of the contract.

Turkey’s Sanmar is building these three ElectRA 2800 electric tugs but also two RAstar 4000-DF escort dual-fuel tugs which will go on LNG and diesel. The yard recently held a keel-laying ceremony for these two LNG-powered tugs.

HaiSea Marine, majority-owned by the Haisla Nation in partnership with Canada’s Seaspan ULC, said earlier this year it had ordered the new vessels at Sanmar.

The tugs will provide ship-assist and escort towing services to LNG carriers calling at LNG Canada’s export facility in Kitimat in the unceded traditional territory of the Haisla Nation.

HaiSea Marine has a contract with LNG Canada to build and operate escort and harbor tugs required for the 14 mtpa LNG export project worth more than $30 billion.
