Case study: electrification of vessels in Brazilian inland navigation

Hidrovias was formed in order to integrate transport routes across South America. It currently operates on four strategic logistics routes: The North Brazil Corridor, the Paraguay-ParanĂ¡ Waterway, the coastal shipping route between Porto Trombetas and Vila do Conde (ParĂ¡ State), and the Port of Santos. This presentation provides a useful case study that assesses the performance of a hybrid vessel as a successful example of electrification. In the face of increasing global pressure to reduce carbon emissions and promote sustainability, electrification emerges as a pivotal player in this changing landscape.
