Edda Freya

Update on hybrid PSV newbuild from Østensjø

Østensjø Rederi's new multi-purpose supply vessel will have energy storage system from Corvus.

The new 150m MPSV to be named the Edda Freya will incorporate a 1050VDC, 546kWh Corvus ESS consisting of 84 Corvus Energy AT6500 advanced lithium polymer battery modules.The project follows on the heels of the Edda Ferd hybrid platform supply vessel (PSV) completed in 2014. The Corvus ESS will again be integrated with the Siemens BlueDrive PlusCTM electric propulsion solution that will provide efficient hybrid propulsion to the new MPSV and also provide backup power in the case of blackout.

Edda Ferd and Edda Freya are part of Ostensjo Rederi's environmental concept “Mindset”.  The vessels optimize the use of diesel generators and the ESS to significantly reduce fuel consumption and emissions, allowing a 20 to 25% energy savings over comparable vessels.

“We are very pleased to partner again with Siemens and Ostensjo, this time on the Edda Freya MPSV,” said Andrew Morden, President and CEO, Corvus Energy. “Balancing environmental protection and profit is not an easy task in the North Sea.  We are proud to supply an ESS to the vessel that can meet the operational rigors of offshore service.”
