In November, a modern, two-sided, environmentally friendly, eco-friendly hybrid ferry for the Finnish ferry operator Finferries, with construction number P315, was launched.
Launching is another milestone in the construction of the vessel. Works are taking place according to the schedule. The outfitting works on the vessel will begin soon, followed by the preparation of the vessel for the tethered and sea trials. The handover of the vessel to the shipowner is scheduled for the first half of next year.
As a reminder: the ferry will be powered by shore-charged batteries. Combustion power generators will be used as a backup power source for the unit, used in bad weather conditions or large accumulation of ice on the route. The new unit will be 100.5 m long and 17.4 m wide. It can accommodate 90 passenger cars and 372 passengers. The unit is to be operated by a 3-person crew.
