Wärtsilä has successfully tested its automatic wireless induction charging system on the hybrid powered Norwegian ferry FOLGEFONN, owned by Norled. 

This is the first commercial ferry in the world operating with high power wireless charging capability for its batteries, and the successful project represents a notable breakthrough in the evolution of plug-in electrically operated vessels, says Wärtsilä.
