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.
