Gulf of Mexico hybrid PSVs to use Corvus battery systems

28 Feb 2018

All hybrid platform supply vessels (PSVs) in the Gulf of Mexico will be using battery systems provided by Corvus Energy, it says.

SEACOR Marine and Rolls-Royce on Tuesday selected the company to provide lithium ion-based energy storage systems (ESS) for three new platform supply vessels.

The batteries will be used to provide spinning reserve during critical vessel operations such as dynamic positioning, as well as to provide support for peak shaving, enabling the diesel engines to operate more efficiently.

The latest development suggests Corvus Orca ESS providing battery power to seven SEACOR hybrid PSVs and 100% of the hybrid PSVs operating in the Gulf of Mexico.

“Corvus is pleased to be an integral part of SEACOR’s growing fleet of hybrid PSVs”, says Halvard Hauso, Senior Vice President of Sales at Corvus Energy.

“Tightly integrated with the Rolls-Royce hybrid power solution, the Orca ESS will enable these vessels to achieve environmental and energy efficiency benefits.”

The brand-new PSVs were acquired by SEACOSCO, a joint venture between SEACOR and China Cosco Shipping Group (COSCO), and will be retrofitted into hybrid vessels.
