Zero-emission operation in populated areas
As tour boats often only sail short distances between mooring points, you have good opportunities for running them on pure electrical power from onboard batteries installed below the passenger deck. In this way, you can sail with zero emissions – an important point for a ship type that frequently operates in major cities or along inland canals. In addition, running on battery-powered electrical motors reduces vibrations onboard and lowers the noise level of your tour boats to the benefit of passengers and local residents alike.
The batteries of your tour boat can be charged when mooring, either during short stays along the route or overnight. A charging regime that suits your operation is defined, and the controls and power management systems of the tour boat are upgraded for electrical operation.
