Four solar ships for Berlin

From 2014 onwards, four solar ships solely driven by solar power will transport passengers on the Berlin waterways. The four identical ferries are 18 m long and 5.2 m wide and each can accommodate 35 passengers.

The innovative solar catamarans, whose twin hulls are made entirely of corrosion-free aluminium, have been specifically designed for the Berlin waterways and surrounding lakes. The typical lightweight construction allows for a spacious passenger compartment with low power requirements.
