Norway to Launch the World's First Electric Ferry; Will Take Only 10 Minutes to Recharge via

will operate across the Sognefjord fjord in Norway starting in 2015. With the capacity to carry 360 passengers and 120 cars, the ferry will run on batteries that take just 10 minutes to recharge between trips. The design was developed in collaboration between Siemens and Norwegian shipyard Fjellstrand. After winning a competition organized by Norway’s Ministry of Transport, the project was picked up by shipping company Norlend, who have been granted the license to operate the electric-powered car ferry on the route until 2025.
