Passenger ship for regular service in the Hanseatic City of Rostock
The new electric solar passenger ferry is intended for use in Rostock's city harbour, where it will shuttle between Kabutzenhof and Gehlsdorf on a route of half a kilometre from mid-2021. The catamaran's hull will be made of steel. The ferry will carry up to 80 people and 15 bicycles on one trip, fully electric and completely emission-free. The propulsion power for the two 45-kW rudder propellers is supplied by high-performance batteries, which are charged by a total of 36 solar modules installed on the roof of the ship. According to Ingo Schillinger, the responsible manager of Ampereship GmbH, the catamaran designed by Ampereship reaches a maximum speed of 14 km/h, whereby a service speed of 7 to 8 km/h is sufficient for the realisation of the schedule. The use of the environmentally friendly electric-solar passenger ferry in inner-city traffic on the Warnow River will save up to 36,000 litres of diesel per year.
