European Group Developing Electric Car Ferry for Norway
Siemens, Norwegian shipyard Fjellstrand and shipping company Norled have developed what they say is the world’s first electrically powered car ferry.
The 80-meter vessel can carry 120 cars and 360 passengers. From 2015 onward, it will serve the route between Lavik and Oppedal, Norway, across the Sognefjord.
The vessel currently serving this route uses on average one million liters of diesel and emits 570 metric tons of carbon dioxide and 15 metric tons of nitrogen oxides a year.
