LARGEST ZERO-EMISSION FERRY FROM CEMRE
Cemre Shipyard cut steel for the world's largest zero-emission ferry ordered by Scandlines.
The steel cutting at Cemre Shipyard kicked off the construction process of the world’s largest zero-emission ferry. Cemre Shipyard’s Business Development Director Burak Mursaloğlu noted that they are pleased and proud to complete the first phase of an environmentally-friendly and promising ship, and expressed his hope that the cooperation between LMG and Scandlines would continue. Michael Guldmann Petersen, the COO of Scandlines, said, "We are delighted to start the project after months of preparation. The start of steel cutting is an important milestone for our zero-emission ferry."
The zero-emission ferry to be built for Danish ferry operator Scandlines will be 47 meters long, have a capacity of carrying 140 passengers and 66 trucks and will be commissioned in 2024. On the ferry designed by LMG Marin AS in Norway, trucks can be transported on both the upper and the lower decks. The ship's modular structure will also be suitable for transporting passenger vehicles. With the zero-emission hybrid diesel/battery electric propulsion system, the ship will operate in two different operating conditions, cruising at a speed of 10 knots with zero-emission, and cruising in diesel-hybrid mode at a speed of 16 knots with the support of its generators.
The ship will be built according to the class rules of the Lloyd's Register and will have the title of one of the largest battery-capacity ships of around 10 MWh.
