Grimaldi and Corvus complete their mega batteries project
The ferries Cruise Barcelona and Cruise Roma have been fitted with a total of 11 MWh of energy storage, enabling zero emission operations up to four hours during their port stays.
"An ESS [energy storage system] this massive had never before been retrofitted onboard a cruise ferry vessel. It's clear now that if shipowners are willing to go green, the technology exists," Roger Rosvold, Senior Vice President Sales, Corvus Energy, highlighted.
He also said, "The Grimaldi Group is a highly skilled and experienced shipowner. We are impressed with their commitment to reduce emissions from their operating fleet and their in-depth knowledge on what can be done. Good collaboration and close partnership are key in developing new and innovative solutions to accelerate the adoption of green technology."
"The Corvus energy storage system is an important component in our vision for sustainable shipping," Andrea D'Ambra, Energy Saving Technical Department, Grimaldi Euromed, summed up.
