Denmark’s first new 100% electric, 59,5m-long ferry, Ærøfærgerne’s ELLEN, arrived from Stettin in Poland, at the Søby Shipyard for completion.
Τhe objective of the E-ferry project is to demonstrate that a 100% electric, emission free, medium sized ferry can transport passengers, cars and trucks on longer distances than previously seen.
The ferry is designed for medium-range connections such as Søby – Fynshav (10.7 nm) and Søby – Faaborg (9.6 nm), but ranges of more than 20 nm are realistic.
