Electric solar-powered car ferries
The completely emission-free propulsion gives passengers the impression that they are gliding across the water. The solar panels supply the electric engines with electricity and subsequently provide a noiseless motoring experience. This can open up the possibility of driving through nature reserves, for example.
Our solar-powered ships are specially designed for this eventual terrain, all while taking into account the air draught for passing under bridges, water depth and navigation width, based on our experience with cruise ships.
