» Swedish company Green City Ferries is preparing to launch the world's first «fast-charging electric-powered passenger ferry.
According to representatives of the company, the vessel with a capacity of 100 people will take only 10 minutes to recharge. The energy stored in such a short time is sufficient to take the ferry from Solna to the Old Town (Gamla Stan), for example.
This type of transport is eco-friendly and economical - using electricity will save 50,000 liters of diesel fuel per trip.
A ferry called Movitz is to start operation in August. In Norway, the launch of a similar vessel (although for car transportation) is planned for 2015.
