Corvus Energy has been awarded a 10-year service and maintenance agreement for the entire Scandlines hybrid ferry fleet. The multi-year contract includes both conventional service and maintenance of the fleets energy storage systems, plus Corvuss remote condition-based monitoring service, Watchman. Scandlines is very pleased to continue and expand our long partnership with Corvus Energy, said Fini Hansen, technical superintendent of fleet management at Scandlines. Beginning with Corvus in 2012, their industry-leading energy storage technology has become the standard electric battery power solution for all of our hybrid vessels. On 5 February 2017, Scandlines put its two newest Corvus-powered hybrid ferries, M/V Berlin and M/V Copenhagen, into regular service on the Rostock-Gedser route between Denmark and Germany. The fuel consumption of the vessels has been reduced to almost one third per crossing per car compared with the previous ferries used on the same route.
