Asahi Tanker Orders Fully Electric Vessels

Asahi Tanker announced an order for two new electric tankers and they plan to put them in operations as soon as March 2022 and March 2023, expecting the vessels to achieve zero emissions of CO2, NOx, SOx, and particulates due to all-electric core energy systems. Corvus Energy was chosen as the battery pack supplier for the 62-meter-long ship, which will require a capacity of almost 3.5 MWh. Kawasaki Heavy Industries (KHI) was awarded the contract for the ship’s propulsion system September of 2020 and will integrate the 3,480 kWh Orca ESS from Corvus Energy to power the vessel.
