Ferry solution for challenging duties.

This presentation will discuss the solution developed by Vuyk Engineering for a full electric passenger ferry with a very challenging duty profile. The particular challenge was that the ferry route was extremely long, the speed required was high, but the berthing time for the vessel, and its opportunity to re-charge, was short. This presentation gives an insight into the development process and highlights the main challenges and important design choices. It shows that application of new technologies such as batteries have significant impacts in the overall vessel design and operation.
