Electric propulsion offers maximised efficiency, fuel savings, reduced noise and vibration, eco- friendliness and compliance to new environmental regulations.  Battery power solutions improve life-cycle of vessels and contribute to better use of resources. Charging time, reliable energy storage system, construction costs are critical factors for short-distance vessels to operate all-electric.


Hybrid vessels and all-electric ships already exist in european waters.
