Join Wightlink and Wärtsilä to discuss developing and delivering hybrid solutions, offering cost savings in fuel and minimizing environmental impact
Wightlink’s Victoria of Wight ferry entered service in 2018 and serves the crossing between the Isle of Wight and the English mainland. The Wärtsilä solutions onboard make it the most environmentally sustainable vessel ever on this route. A notable contributor to this is the Wärtsilä hybrid management system. This enables a significant energy improvement over conventional systems by running the engines at optimal load and absorbing many of the load fluctuations using batteries.
