After the previous deliveries of three hybrid ferries and one fully electric ferry, Schlepp- und Fährgesellschaft Kiel christened their second electric ferry ‘Wellingdorf’ on August 22.
The ‘Wellingdorf’ measures 24,70 by 7,20 m and she is a sister vessel of the previous delivered ‘Düsternbrook’. The vessel is completely emission-free and entirely powered by battery power with an installed capacity of 1092 kWh. Besides the battery pack the vessel has 20 solar panels on the roof to provide the onboard power supply network.
Vera Navis is proud to be a trusted supplier on engineering services for Holland Shipyards Group and contributed for this project by providing concept, basic and structures/systems detail design.
