AMERICAS: Zero-emission ferries nearing operation in Canada
ICE Marine Design has announced the construction and trials of two zero-emission ferries for the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario, Canada have been successfully completed.
The vessels – the 72-metre Amherst Islander II and the 99-metre Wolfe Islander IV – recently sailed from the shipbuilder Damen Shipyards Galati to Constanta, for onwards transportation to Canada onboard a heavy-lift semi-submersible transport vessel.
As previously reported, the Amherst Islander II was launched in November 2019.
The Island Class are battery-equipped ships designed for full electric operation.
‘The ships are fitted with hybrid technology that bridges the gap until shore charging infrastructure becomes available,’ ICE Marine Design said. ‘From the exterior details to the engines, the design of the new vessels reduces underwater radiated noise, lowers emissions, and improves the passenger experience.’
Both ferries will operate solely on Lake Ontario, carrying passengers and cars between Amherst and Wolfe Island.
