Green City Ferries is launching the world’s first supercharged TM electric passenger ferries. Virtually silent and producing zero emissions, GCF’s ferries can charge in ten minutes and run for an hour on ten minutes of supercharging.
Green City Ferries’ boats are powered by propulsion systems from Echandia Marine, a company founded with the mission to bring Swedish submarine technology ‘to the surface’. Submarines have run on electricity for over 100 years. Echandia’s founder and CTO, Magnus Eriksson, himself a submarine designer and engineer and a strong proponent of electric transport, set out to use his expertise to revolutionize the passenger ferry industry. The propulsion system is designed for both new boats and retrofits.
