Seaspan & Corvus Energy Hybrid Ferry Tour

Community Event
Mar 9 2017 - 1:00pm to 3:30pm

 

Take a tour of Seaspan's brand new hybrid LNG and lithium ion battery powered ferry!

 

Corvus Energy, international designers, developers and distributors of high-capacity lithium ion energy systems, have joined with BC ferry company Seaspan in the development of BC's first hybrid ferry.

The ‘Seaspan Swift’ is the first LNG-battery hybrid cargo ferry in North America. The vessel features two dual-fuel engines and a Corvus lithium ion energy storage system (ESS), which operates as spinning reserve and provides propulsion power for low-speed maneuvers. Click here to read about the full release about the ferry.

Corvus invites you to join them for a free presentation at their Richmond facility, followed by a tour of the ferry itself!
