Are electric ferries a realistic option?

Are electric ferries a realistic option?

Is it possible to move away from diesel-powered ferries and instead opt for electric ferries in Danish waters? This has been the starting point for the project Green Ferry Vision which has completed a feasibility study for an electric powered ferry, designed for domestic coastal trade. The project is presented on Friday, September 5th.

The project was designed to investigate whether it is possible at this time to switch away from diesel and instead opt for electric ferries, which transfers energy from batteries charged by wind power. The study has been based on sustainability principles and includes three phases: design, production and operation.

The idea behind the project was to explore the possibilities of replacing the existing ferries sailing to and from the Aero, with electric ferries.

SIMAC and Fyn Maritime Cluster are to host an event to present the conclusions on Friday, September 5th. It happens at SIMAC in Svendborg from 10-14. Among the various speakers at the seminar are Jonas Pedersen from Tuco Marine who will come and talk about carbon fiber composite in the ferry building, while a naval architect Jens Kristensen will talk about an energy optimized island ferry design.
