Movitz is a 23-metre vessel which can carry 100 passengers. Movitz has operated for many years as a conventional vessel and was retrofitted during the summer of 2014. It will run for an hour after ten minutes of supercharging, on a route between Solna Strand and Gamla Stan, the heart of Stockholm’s Old Town.
Movitz’ launch as the world’s first supercharged electric ferry is a momentous occasion for electric transport, for the marine industry, and for Sweden. Echandia Marine, developed its innovative propulsion system and charging technology as part of a project supported by the Swedish Energy Agency.
