Gotland Tech Development, a subsidiary of Rederi AB Gotland, has together with partners Helios Nordic Energy, METS Technology and ABB been granted support (SEK 1,238,750) by the Swedish Energy Agency to investigate how a partial electrification of Destination Gotland’s two LNG vessels can be carried out.


  • Electrifying large, fast ships
  • Heavily constrained grid on the island of Gotland
  • Use of solar energy
  • More electric cars will also require charging during transit. This requires additional battery capacity and will also be included in the study.
