Two massive ferries...

Two massive ferries are about to become the biggest all-electric ships in the world:
https://electrek.co/2017/08/24/all-elec ... rries-abb/

Begins:
Over the last year, ABB has been converting two of Sweden’s HH Ferries Group’s massive ferries from diesel engines to being completely battery-powered.

Now the ships are reportedly close to launching, which would likely make them the biggest all-electric ships in the world.
Includes:
ABB has been installing giant robotic arms at the docks to operate the charger.

A new fleet of all-electric ferries with massive battery packs is going into production:

Starts:
Several recent projects seem to indicate that maritime transport is well on its way to go electric and ferries are at the forefront.

The Havyard shipyard announced that it received a contract to build seven battery-powered ferries for Fjord1, Norwegian transport conglomerate.
Home Solar Power

The news comes after the operators of the first all-electric ferry in Norway, the ‘Ampere’, reported some impressive statistics after operating the ship for over 2 years.

They claim that the all-electric ferry cuts emissions by 95% and costs by 80%.
:mrgreen:
