A pioneer of lithium-ion battery technology in maritime applications, Corvus Energy proudly announces a major milestone for the company: the 500th project order. The order is one of the largest in Corvus’ history and is for the supply of the 5,288 kWh batteries for each of three zero-emission harbor tugs. The tugs will be built by Sanmar Shipyards for delivery to HaiSea Marine. HaiSea Marine, majority-owned by the Haisla Nation in partnership with Seaspan ULC, will operate the three battery-powered harbour tugs to berth/unberth liquified natural gas (LNG) carriers at the LNG Canada export terminal in Kitimat, B.C., Canada following the commissioning of the plant around the middle of the decade. Corvus has grown from being one of the pioneers in battery systems to a trusted brand in the marine industry.  Recently the company launched their hydrogen fuel cell initiative for maritime applications with the world leader on fuel cell technology, Toyota Corporation.
