Swedish public transport company Västtrafik has taken delivery of their fourth electric hybrid ferry Eloise.
The 298 passenger ferry has an installed capacity of 1260 kWh, with which she can sail fully electric for six hours, recharging via shore power or, if necessary, the onboard diesel generator.
It is powered by an EST-Floattech battery system.
EST-Floattech’s Green Orca 1050 High Energy Battery System runs on Lithium Polymer NMC cells with a high discharge rate capability.
An in-house designed battery management system (software) and several mechanical features (hardware) ensure continuous safe operations.
