- The high-speed ferries BARONESSEN and BARONEN returned to the Brødrene Aa shipyard to replace their diesel engines with batteries.
- The vessels will also be lengthened by 10m to address the reduced energy efficiency as a result from the addition of heavy batteries.
- Innovation in charging: with the assistance of a robotic arm and a battery carousel, the battery module can be replaced in approximately 3 minutes. SHIFTR enables a swift transition to a fully charged battery while the boat is docked, resulting in significant time savings.
- Using a robotic arm and a battery carousel, changing the battery module can be done in about 3 minutes. SHIFTR makes it possible to change to a fully charged battery while the boat is docked, thus saving a lot of time. At the same time, the power grid will not be burdened to the same extent as with fast charging. Slow charging takes place at lower power, and will be less of a burden on the infrastructure.
