Battery-powered ferry - transport with zero emissions

Hundreds of millions of people around the World live in cities that are also active shipping hubs. As populations in these urban areas are dependent on maritime transport of goods, new technologies are key to reducing the environmental impact of shipping.

Ferries are a traditional and instrumental part of a public transport system in several European cities, such as Norway's capital Oslo. ABB presented a fully battery-driven ferry concept at Zero Conference, which brought hundreds of decision makers around the world together to discuss climate questions. A battery-powered ferry will provide an efficient means of transport without emissions or noise pollution. Charging of the batteries happens conveniently while the ferry is in shore.
