A collaboration project between Solstad Offshore, Corvus Energy, VPS, Vard and Raa Labs, aims to optimize the use of batteries according to actual operations, reducing emissions, and improving the return on investment.
ore specifically, Solstad Offshore is now able to monitor in real time the optimal usage of the Corvus Energy battery packs onboard their vessels, thanks to a collaborative effort between Solstad Offshore, Corvus Energy, VPS, Vard and Raa Labs.
As for Raa Labs, it will provide data from both battery packs and core operational systems onboard Solstad vessels, sharing all the data in real time both onboard as well as in the cloud. The data is made available through the application Maress from VPS, where all stakeholders can see the data and optimize the usage of the battery packs.
We wanted to ensure that the investments made in state-of-the-art batteries from Corvus Energy, were used in the right way and as much as possible. This would allow us to minimize emissions today, but also to plan for future investments, making sure that we have the right size battery packs installed onboard our vessels
said Sustainability Advisor in Solstad Offshore, Svein Erik Isaksen explains.
Mr. Isaksen further added that if larger battery packs meant we could use batteries more in vessel operations, that would be a win-win for the industry and the environment.
Henning Dahl, Chief Business Development Officer at battery manufacturer Corvus Energy elaborates: “We want to deliver the best possible solutions to our customers. We also want to make sure our batteries are used as much as possible to help reduce our customers´ emissions.
The Maress application for data-driven emissions reduction has become the de facto standard for operating your offshore vessels. By integrating the battery data delivered by Raa Labs into Maress, the collaboration aspires to provide offshore operators with an overview of their operations, and enabling them to have control of their operational data including battery usage, according to VP of Decarbonisation at VPS, Simen Sanna.
Offshore, is a great way to prove the value of real time sensor data from vessels. With RaaEDGE, our onboard IOT platform, it is easy to access vessel data that has been unavailable until now and making vessel data available for real value creation in an application like Maress
concluded Raa Labs CEO, Ari Marjamaa.
