Paper: Implementation of Zero Emission Fast Shortsea Shipping (Medstraum)

The paper describes the implementation of state-of-the-art “Industry 4.0” methods and tools, a holistic ship design optimization andmodular production methods, as well as advanced battery technologies to enable a fully electrical, fast zero-emission waterborneurban transport. The design of a fast catamaran passenger ferry demonstrator planned for operation as a waterborne shuttle in theStavanger/Norway area and of a replicator for operation at Thames River/London are elaborated, including infrastructural issues fortheir operation.
