Specifically, the contract was signed between Corvus Energy and the Norwegian Electric Systems (NES) for the marine.

The package installed, will enable the vessel to voyage the fjords and ECAs on zero emission mode five years prior to the deadline, stated Geir Bjørkeli, the CEO of Corvus Energy.


Moreover, the manufacturer will serve an air-cooled ESS along with Corvus’ patented single-cell thermal isolation which exceeds class requirements.

The newbuilds are part of the construction of four environmentally-friendly vessels that will operate on the Bergen-Kirkenes coastal route.

The equipment from Corvus Energy is scheduled for delivery in 2020 and the coastal route vessels will be in service from 2021.

Generally, Wartsila also signed an agreement for a hybrid retrofit installation. The installation of the battery hybrid propulsion solution aims to enhance the vessel's environmental performance by reducing its emissions, fuel consumption, and noise.

In addition, Asahi Tanker and partner Exeno-Yamamizu Corporation Tokyo developed a shipping tanker called 'e5' that incorporates zero emission electric propulsion.

In light of green practices and a more sustainable future in shipping, Sailcargo will build 'Ceiba', a 148-foot emission-free cargo tall ship.

As the shipping industry envisions a greener future, efforts are being made to find alternative solutions, in protection of the environment. Therefore, Foreship published an infographic, describing a 5-steps solution to use batteries onboard.
