Corvus Energy to power Nordlaks hybrid fish carrier

Corvus Energy has won a contract from BMA Technology in Turkey to supply its lithium-ion battery-based energy storage system for a new Nordlaks fish carrier.

This is the second live-fish carrier in a series of two being built at Tersan Shipyard in Turkey for Norwegian salmon and trout producer, Nordlaks.

The vessels feature liquefied natural gas (LNG) and battery hybrid propulsion.

Corvus Energy delivered the energy storage system for the first vessel named Bjorg Pauline as well. Tersan launched this vessel in December last year.

The fish carrier developed by Norway’s NSK Ship Design is 84 meters long and 19 meters wide.

The vessel has an ice-class 1A notation and includes shore connections for port operation.

Corvus Energy expects the vessel will emit about 1864 tons of CO2 less per year, down 30 percent. This is in addition to 30 percent cost reduction.

The Norwegian company says it will supply a 678-kilowatt-hour battery system for the vessel in September 2020.

Nordlaks will take the delivery of the second LNG-powered fish carrier in February next year.
