Corvus Energy announced that it will get a fund of about $6 million from the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC IRAP) that supports a research and development project for the creation of technology for energy storage and digitalization for marine containers.
This multi-year R&D project will be done in the main research, engineering and product development centre of Corvus Energy in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada.
“Funding from NRC IRAP and other Canadian government programs has been instrumental for Corvus, not only in assisting our product development over the years, but also in opening new markets and helping us attract our investment partners,” says Sean Puchalski, EVP of Strategy & Business Planning for Corvus Energy. “We have grown to be one of Canada’s leading clean tech companies with expertise recognized throughout the global marine industry. We are immensely thankful for the financial assistance from the Government of Canada.”
“With decarbonization efforts intensifying globally, Corvus continues investing in innovative products and services to remain at the forefront of evolving energy conservation and emissions reduction practices in the marine industry,” says Geir Bjørkeli, CEO of Corvus Energy. “As our operations and customer base grow around the world, we discover seemingly limitless opportunities for energy storage, underlining the growing importance of continuing to develop our R&D, digitalization and commercialization expertise, in Canada and throughout our organization.”
