Battery energy storage systems (BESS) manufacturer Corvus Energy is expanding its US operations by opening a new factory in the state of Washington.

The US-based manufacturing facility will be located just north of Seattle in the Port of Bellingham. With an annual capacity of 200 MWh of stored energy capacity, it will support demand for marine BESS in the Americas as the marine industry accelerates its adoption of decarbonization technology to meet global GHG emissions reduction targets.

“Washington State was a natural choice for Corvus due to the presence of a strong maritime cluster, the state’s focus on green shipping, and the proximity to our large team near Vancouver, Canada,” CEO Geir Bjørkeli remarked.
