Passenger ship for everyday operation of scheduled services in the Hanseatic City of Rostock
The new all-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 steelmade. The ferry is going to 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. Using 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.
