ZEM Wins Electric Ferry Contract
ZEM has won a contract to deliver batteries to a hybrid car ferry serving an important passenger route in Norway. Designed with flexibility in mind, the vessel will run as a hybrid but can be modified to run as a full electric ferry with a shore charging system.
ABB is supplying the power system for this ferry, which has been designed by Multi Maritime and will be built by Fiskarstrand Verft in western Norway.
The ferry will have a capacity of 60 cars and 250 passengers.
