Remontowa to build two hybrid ferries

The ferries provide capacities for 210 lane metres and 150 passenger (Rendering: LMG Marin)

The new vessels will operate sailings on the river Thames crossing in the district of Woolwich carrying over a million vehicles and 2.6 million passengers a year. The new ferries will have 210 lane meters of vehicle deck space with dedicated cyclist accommodation separated from foot passengers. The vessels will be licensed to carry 150 passengers. They were designd by Norwegian naval architect LMG Marin with several energy-saving solutions. The two vessels will be equipped with four azimuth thrusters powered by vertically mounted permanent magnet motors. Two diesel generating sets are installed and in normal operation, only one will be running at a near constant load with a battery installation providing the peak power demand for the crossings. The greenhouse gases are reduced by use of Selective Catalytic Reduction systems (SCR), Diesel Particle Systems (DPF) and Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD). LED lighting is also used onboard for energy saving purpose. Delivery to Transport of London is scheduled for the fourth quarter 2018.

Poland’s Remontowa Shipbuilding has started construction of two car passenger ferries for British customer Transport for London.
