World's largest electric ferry launched
The Turkish shipyard Cemre launched the cargo-passenger ferry Futura, which is being built by order of the Danish carrier Scandlines. This new, super-large, eco-friendly water transport will begin operating on the Puttgarden-Rødby route (between Germany and Denmark) in 2024.

The parameters of this electric vessel are as follows:

✅ length - 147,4 m
✅ width - 25,4 m
✅ design draft – 5,30 m

The Futura ferry can accommodate up to 140 passengers and up to 66 pieces of cargo. The speed is 16 knots (about 30 km/h). In addition to its impressive dimensions, the new ferry is also distinguished by its largest battery pack with a capacity of 10 MWh, consisting of lithium-ion cells.

To restore its energy, an 8,6 meter charging installation was built. It is activated as soon as the ship approaches the pier. The automatic connection process itself takes 15 seconds. To fully replenish the charge, according to the manufacturer, it will take only 12 minutes.

In addition, Futura can operate as a hybrid watercraft and is equipped with three generator sets. The amount of investment in this promising project amounted to 80 million euros.
