Two electrically powered ferries left the building’s shipyards and headed to Canada. This was reported by SkyNews, citing sources in the Ontario Ministry of Transport.
The vessels are fully electric, although they have diesel generators back-up in case of an emergency. They will navigate in Ontario between Wolf Island and Kingston City. The author of the reproach and the customer was the Ontario Department of Transportation. The ships were built at the shipyards of the Romanian corporation Damen.
Within the framework of the project, it is also planned to build a power plant on about. Wolfe, which will run on green renewable energy sources. Thus, the result of the project should be a completely autonomous electric, environmentally friendly ferry.
