Corvus Energy supplying four 542 kWh Li-ion packs for hybrid tugs for Gorgon Project
20 September 2012
Corvus Energy is designing and manufacturing more than two megawatts of Li-ion batteries to be at the heart of four new 542 kWh hybrid tugboats now being built for the Gorgon Project. One of the world’s largest natural gas projects, Gorgon is currently under construction 130 km off the west coast of Australia. Once complete, it will become the largest natural resource project in Australia’s history.
Corvus is thrilled to be part of this major project and have our industrial lithium-polymer battery technology featured in the hybrid tugs. We are confident that our 48-volt batteries will provide many years of economical operation as well as significantly reducing the environmental impact of such a large and important project.—Corvus Energy’s CEO Brent Perry
The 48-volt Corvus Energy AT6500 is based on the standard 8D format that is recognized and used in 95% of marine applications and uses Dow Kokam cells with NMC chemistry.
The hybrid tugs being built Svitzer by have a maximum bollard pull of 75 tons and will be used for general offshore operations and will be called upon to provide a significant role in the ongoing development of the Gorgon gas field.
The Gorgon Project is a joint venture between several global oil companies. The venture is anticipated to garner 35.3 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, generate $300 billion in Australian export earnings, and have an estimated lifespan of about 40 years.
Corvus Energy, based in Richmond, B.C., Canada provides industrial-sized power in a compact, modular lithium-ion battery system to commercial marine, transportation, ports machinery, remote community, off grid and grid energy markets.
