GEAR | Corvus Energy ESS tapped by Vard for future windfarm maintenance vessel


Corvus Energy has been selected by Vard Electro to supply lithium-ion battery-based energy storage systems (ESS) for the new vessel being built at Vard Vung Tau for Taiwan’s Greater Changhua wind farms.

The vessel will utilise a newly developed ship design optimised for the complicated and harsh environment in the Taiwan Strait. It will be the first vessel of its type to be built according to Taiwanese flag and class.

Corvus Energy will supply an air-cooled ESS for use on the vessel, which is scheduled for delivery in 2022.
