Fannefjord - Peter Fiskerstrand

Hybrid ferry Fannefjord launched

Fjord1's LNG-battery ferry Fannefjord has been launched. The ferry was gas electric and is now converted to a battery hybrid.
Published Jan 21 2016 — by Maritime Battery Forum

The ferry can transport 390 passengers and 125 cars and is expected to save 15 % fuel after the conversion. Integrating a battery also reduces maintenance costs and greenhouse gas emissions - especially the methane slip.

Fannefjord has a 410kWh energy storage system (ESS) from Corvus. The battery is integrated with the existing Siemens power systems and powered by two LNG generators.
