Electric ferry on the way to Stockholm

Electric ferry on the way to Stockholm

08-09-2014 08:00:00


The electric ferry Sjövägen, built in Faaborg Shipyard, has now started its journey towards Stockholm where it will sail for the company Ballerina AB. Faaborg Shipyard expects similar tasks in the future.

"The politicians in Stockholm have decided that they will test electric ferries, and this is the first one. This is only a test, but if all goes as planned, they will replace the old ferries with the new electric-powered ones" says Hans Jørgen Riber from Principia North, who designed the ferry.

The ferry's batteries are 600 volts, and the ferry can sail 7 to 8 hours on one full charge. But there are also two diesel generators, which can be started, if need be. The Sjövägens speed is approximately 12 knots, and it will reach Stockholm in a weeks’ time.

Faaborg Shipyard is currently building a similar ship for use in Copenhagen. The hope is that they will sell more ferries to Stockholm, when all passenger ferries will be replaced by electrical ferries.
