Dutch Thrustleader Battery Driven Marine Propulsion - Azimuth- and tunnel thrusters. Today’s world demands clean & green ships. IMO’s strategy is reducing significantly greenhouse gas emissions through to 2050. Sailing with electric and hybrid ships will lead to significant reduction in fuel cost, maintenance and emissions. Rather realistic for smaller vessels on the short run. The products of Dutch Thrustleader Marine Propulsion easily interface with battery powered drives for both small as well as large ships. For a new built car ferry to operate in Norway on the route Barmen-Barmsund Dutch Thrustleader Marin Propulsion supplied RINA-class L-drive azimuth thruster systems for the main propulsion. The ferry is a full electric powered by batteries and charging from shore power at the terminals Barmen and Barmsund. The ferry is a 30m long catamaran with an azimuth propulsion thruster at each end between the two hulls. Maneuverability and low energy consumption where the challenges for this project.
