Abstract

This paper outlines the concept design developed by International Contract Engineering (ICE) for an all-electric double-ended ferry designed for a medium range crossing (about 8 nautical miles). The international market of hybrid and all-electric ferries is highlighted with related advantages and barriers, and some statistics, in the context of the new environmental international rules (summarised in the paper).
