Vattenfall and Echandia Marine have developed a new solution for electric ferries that is designed to minimise emissions and noise and at the same time lower operational and maintenance costs and provide superfast charging. The systems are installed on E/S Movitz that operates in central Stockholm and can be fully charged within 10 minutes with up to 500 kW charging power. Vattenfall and Echandia Marine have together developed a new concept that can contribute to a more sustainable transport solution for different types of boats and ferries.

Mr Torbjörn Johansson, head of Vattenfall Network Solutions in Sweden, said that “We are proud to be able to contribute to reducing emissions for transport also by sea through innovative and sustainable technology. The collaboration means that we can deliver value to the customer through our new functional solutions for fast charging, while at the same time providing great environmental and climate benefits for both society and residents in Stockholm.”

The solution is called "Power as a service" and means that the ownership and management of the equipment, which includes the charging station, the battery system and the driveline, lies with Vattenfall with long experience of owning and operating electric power systems. This includes, among other things, operation and maintenance, electrical safety responsibility and any further investments during the contract period.
