The vessel name will be Gaarden and is the first new generation hybrid ferry of 32m long and 8m wide. The hybrid ferry will be propelled by two fixed propellers driven by electric motors and have a maximum speed of 11 knots. The electric motors will be powered by two generators or the battery pack installed by Holland Ship Electric. The batteries will be charged overnight at a charging station.

The Gaarden will transport passengers comfortably with reduced emissions due to the battery pack, GTL fuel, particle filter and a SCR catalysator.

We wish SFK, Holland Shipyards and Holland Ship Electric all the best with building and installations and looking forward to more projects for SFK in the future.
