Ferry

Wärtsilä Ship Design has a vast portfolio of innovative and cost effective shuttle ferries, featuring zero or low emissions. The designs have been developed in line with the Norwegian government’s new environmental regulations for ferries emphasising the elimination of harmful emissions. This trend is also evident in a number of other countries.

The ferry design characteristic focuses on high energy efficiency with low resistance, both above and below the water line. The ferries are designed to run entirely on batteries or in a battery-engine hybrid configuration where the fuel options are liquefied natural gas (LNG) or biofuel.
