Corvus Energy signs DNV GL Manufacturing Survey Arrangement

28 Aug 2019

Corvus Energy a developer and supplier of advanced energy storage systems (ESS) for maritime, offshore, subsea and port applications, on Monday (26 August) said it has completed the DNV GL Manufacturer Product Quality Assessment (MPQA) and has signed a Manufacturing Survey Arrangement (MSA), resulting in streamlined quality control processes and faster customer deliveries.

Under the terms of the MSA, Corvus Energy has been granted the ability to witness the Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) at its plant in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada, without the presence of a DNV GL surveyor.

“We are honored to be the first battery or energy storage system manufacturer in the world to be approved for MSA certification,” says Abbas Nouri Zenouz, QHSE Director at Corvus Energy.

“It’s a testament to the strict quality assurance methods we adhere to in our manufacturing operations, as well as the collaborative relationship developed between Corvus and DNV GL over the years rooted in our mutual goal of improving safety in marine battery applications.”

“It is fitting that Corvus Energy is the first battery supplier to achieve MPQA/MSA,” says Anders Mikkelsen, Director Business Development in the DNV GL Vancouver office.

“Corvus Energy was a pioneer in energy storage systems and the first supplier to achieve Type Approval for lithium-ion batteries back in 2013. They are still technological leaders, with single-cell thermal runaway isolation and numerous other innovations that have paved the way for safe, economical and high-performance marine electrification.”

DNV GL will conduct audits of Corvus test and control routines, procedures and equipment, as well as acceptance criteria for the energy storage products covered by the MSA to ensure continued high standards of quality.

Corvus Energy provides battery power to more hybrid or all-electric ferries than all other providers of energy storage systems combined.

The company’s Orca ESS solutions portfolio has unsurpassed experience from 200+ projects, totalling over 200 MWh and more than 2 million operating hours.
