ABB selects Corvus to supply energy storage system for electric tug eWolf


ABB Marine & Ports has selected Corvus Energy to supply the energy storage system for the all-electric tug eWolf by Crowley Maritime Corporation.

The vessel will be installed with 6.2 MWh of Corvus Orca Energy battery, which will become an essential part of the complete integrated electrical propulsion system delivered by ABB, says Sveinung Odegard, President of Corvus Energy USA.

Upon delivery, the 82-foot vessel will support shipping activities in Port of San Diego in California. The ship will be built by Master Boat Builders in Alabama and delivered to Crowley mid-2023, said Dave Lee, Senior Account Manager, ABB Marine & Ports Division.
