SOMETIMES BIGGER IS BETTER
Built in 2000, the Hamburg Solarshuttle is the world’s biggest Solarferry, carrying up to 120 passengers.
It has been running for over 10 years and is one of Hamburg’s biggest attractions. The boat's solar generator eliminates the production of 10,040 lbs of CO2, 23.3 lbs of NOX and 54.8 lbs of SO4 per year compared to a conventional diesel powered vessel of similar size.
THIS BOAT IS NOT ONLY A SUSTAINABLE SHIP BUT ALSO ACTS AS A SOLAR POWER PLANT
Throughout the year, this vessel creates more energy than it needs, feeding the excess energy into the national grid.
