Corvus’ energy storage system receives DNV GL approval

Corvus Energy has received Type Approval by DNV GL for its Orca Energy energy storage system (ESS) for use in battery-powered or hybrid vessels and offshore units.

Corvus said on Wednesday that the international oil & gas advisory and classification society’s approval confirms the latest generation of ESS from Corvus Energy was found in compliance with international standards, regulations, and recognized DNV GL rules.

The company added that the approval also confirms the high quality and safety standards that Corvus designed into Orca Energy.

The Type Approval Certificate, awarded to the Orca Energy ESS, is valid to August 2022. Products approved by this certificate are accepted for installation on all vessels classed by DNV GL.

Neil Lang, COO of Corvus Energy, said: “Orca Energy was designed and built to exceed all industry standards and customer expectations. As a result, Orca has become the industry’s number one choice for energy storage systems.”

Recently, Corvus Energy won deals to install the Orca Energy ESS on two Havila vessels, one Farstad Shipping’s PSV, and on Eidesvik’s Viking Princess and Viking Lady.
