ForSea: The Present Is Electric

Last week I had the opportunity to do a couple of sailings on AURORA and TYCHO BRAHE, the two ferries from For Sea on Helsingborg – Helsingør.

These ferries were built in the 1990ies and are now mainly running on electricity. We did report about that before, for example with the previous interview with For Sea’s CEO Johan Röstin .

It was nice to see the operation with my own eyes, and I recommend anyone who has interest in environmental solutions to visit them.

I learned that on both sides of the crossing streets had to be broken up to bring the powerline to the ferry terminals. It was also interesting to know that the original diesel engines are still onboard and maintained. They can always take over if necessary.
