A fire alarm was trigged about the MS Brim, a battery-powered sightseeing vessel in Norway, and has been resolved after crews pumped nitrogen into Brim’s enclosed spaces and bulkheads to flush any explosive gases to a nearby truck. The safety zone surrounding it has been lifted.
The battery supplier, Corvus Energy, confirmed the “thermal event” involved Brim’s battery.
The 24-meter MS Brim is an award-winning all-electric sightseeing vessel built in 2019 and equipped with a Corvus Dolphin Energy energy storage system (lithium battery). It has two battery rooms with a combined 790kWh of batteries installed.
