The Action covers the introduction of new and innovative concepts and technology by converting two existing complex RoPax ships – originally driven by marine gasoil – to plug-in all electric powered operation using exclusively batteries. The Action will upgrade environmentally a very busy maritime link, connecting the comprehensive TEN-T network ports of Helsingör (Denmark) and Helsingborg (Sweden).
In conjunction with the ship fitting, the required power provision and charging installations in the ports/ ferry terminals will be realized. Both ferry terminals are located in densely populated areas, so the Action contributes to significant improvements of air quality. The project supports the development of clean Motorways of the Sea by testing and deploying new technological solutions in real operational conditions.
