EU Backs e-Ferry Project

EU Backs e-Ferry Project

The European Union has set aside EUR 16 million for the e-Ferry project run jointly by Denmark, Greece and Norway.

e-Ferry will build the first mid-size 100% electrically powered ferry to link Aero island to mainland in Denmark.

The ferry will be powered by wind sourced electricity and will be able to carry 130 passengers and 40 vehicles, saving 2,000 tons of CO2 per year.

The ferry will carry the largest battery pack ever installed with a high charging capacity allowing for short port stays.

The e-Ferry project is one of 75 research and innovation projects which will receive EUR 484 EU funding under the Horizon 2020 challenge Smart, green and integrated transport, to turn European air, rail, road and waterborne transport into a greener, safer, more competitive and well- integrated system.
