Today we are announcing our entry into the Public Transport sector, through a collaboration with the local authorities in Stockholm to operate the world’s fastest electric ferry.
The Candela P-30 will be a joint pilot project together with @RegionStockholm, and will be launched during 2022.
Carrying 30 passengers between stops at up to 60 km/h without emissions, wake, or noise pollution, P-30 will be about 50% less expensive to operate than traditional ferries. With an energy usage per passenger that is equal to that of a hybrid fuel bus, P-30 is not only a replacement for today’s diesel ferries but also a compelling alternative to cars and buses.
By electrifying waterborne public transport, we will come one step closer to turning our vision of clean oceans and lakes into reality.
