To aid in the adoption of green technologies, Corvus Energy is to offer its energy storage systems via a global lease financing package in cooperation with Viridis Kapital.
“We are pleased to offer our customers a leasing solution tailor-made to fit the operating cashflow of their business,” commented Halvard Hauso, CCO of Corvus Energy. “In almost all vessel segments, leasing can be a new business model for both containerized ESS solutions as well as ESSs in dedicated battery rooms. We believe this new offering will accelerate the shift toward zero-emission solutions on both retrofits and new-builds.”
Traditional bank financing may not always be an option for some shipowners, so a leasing solution can reduce investment barriers for vessel owners.
The leasing option has been made available via a collaborative effort with Norwegian company Viridis Kapital, which specializes in the financing of capital-intensive equipment that contributes to green energy transformations.
“Viridis Kapital is very proud to work with one of the maritime industry’s technology leaders in emissions reduction and energy optimization,” said Ulrik Engelschiøn, chairman of Viridis Kapital. “For each Corvus installation, where we can be one of the enablers, the direct result is a significant and immediate reduction in CO2 emissions.”
