Servogear has announced that its Ecoflow Propulsor system has been selected by the EU-funded emission free fast ferry project, Tram. Ecoflow Propulsor will power the world’s first purely battery-driven fast ferry to operate on a multi stop commuter route.
The vessel will begin being built by Norwegian yard Fjellstrand for Kolumbus in May 2021. Once in operation in 2022, the vessel will operate in the Stavanger area.
“We are truly proud that Servogear, yet again, is chosen as the preferred propulsion partner for another innovative project. In a world where we all need to do our outmost to get the most out of every drop of available energy, we are very happy that our Ecoflow system is getting the attention of an ever-increasing number of clients. The Tram-project is a very future-looking project, and we are grateful for being part of this,” said says Torleif Stokke, CEO of Servogear.
