Cybersecurity: Corvus Energy’s priority
Corvus Energy has improved the safety and elevated the value of its marine battery systems by implementing machine learning and data analytics techniques. The Norwegian company, recognized as a provider of energy storage solutions with batteries and fuel cell systems for the maritime industry, obtained DNV type approval for its Cyber Security Notation in the Energy Storage System Control and Monitoring System (ESS).
This certificate implies that Corvus Energy’s monitoring and control system, together with its Faro data collection platform, has successfully met the rigorous security, quality and performance requirements associated with cybersecurity, in compliance with standards DNV for ship classification P.6 Ch.5 Sec.21 Cyber Security, in accordance with IACS UR E27.
This achievement reflects the company’s commitment to ensuring maximum security and protection for its energy storage systems and the data they manage.
Kolbjorn Berge, Senior Vice President of Regulatory Affairs at Corvus Energy, highlights the relevance of obtaining DNV type cybersecurity approval and states: “Data collection and machine learning are key to gaining in-depth operational insights and real-time diagnostics of the battery system. Constant monitoring allows us to see that the system is used correctly, and increases security significantly as we can detect abnormal values at an early stage and take action before they become critical.”
Currently, Corvus Energy claims to have more than 100 terabytes of data stored in the cloud and anticipates this could drive the creation of new business models. The company reported that it achieved this achievement well before the deadline established by the International Association of Classification Societies (IACS) for the mandatory nature of cybersecurity standards in new construction contracted after July 1, 2024.
“Looking ahead, Corvus Energy is actively beginning the security type approvals process to obtain cybersecurity type approvals for its entire range of products with DNV, as well as other Marine Class Societies,” Corvus Energy said.
