TrAM workshop: Stability and Safety in electric vessels

June 9 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Stab&S conference 2021: First international conference on stability and safety of ships and ocean vehicles

As a result of ambitious climate targets and the need for more sustainable transport solutions in cities around the world, the number of battery electric ferries and fast ferries is expected to grow rapidly in the years to come.

In the Horizon2020 project TrAM (2018-2022, https://tramproject.eu ), 14 European partners are developing the world’s first zero emission fast catamaran ferry through advanced technology, modular production, and optimisation techniques. One demonstrator vessel will be physically built to operate a multi-stop commuter route into Stavanger, Norway from 2022. Construction will start in May 2021, and the demonstrator will be a fully electric fast passenger ferry with zero emission to air and sea.

In this webinar representatives from the TrAM project and other initiatives related to electric vessels operating on green fuels will share information about their development work and issues related to safety and stability.
