25 November 2023, Scandlines’ new zero direct emissions freight ferry was traditionally launched from the Turkish Cemre Shipyard.

The ferry will be named FUTURA at a naming ceremony in connection with its deployment on the Fehmarn Belt in 2024.

With 10MWh, FUTURA will have the world’s largest lithium-ion battery bank to date. (to compare: luxury icebreaker LE COMMANDANT CHARCOT has 4.5MWh in total)

Scandlines CEO Carsten Nørland emphasises that Scandlines definitely plans to keep on sailing for many, many years to come, also after the opening of the Fehmarn Belt fixed link.
