The ferry, which will be adjusted design of the existing ferries, will be designed in-house with Holland Shipyards. The external dimensions will be adjusted to measure 33,60 x 9,00 meters and with a draft of 1,66 meters.
The vessel will be propelled by electrically-driven azimuthing rudderpropellers of 250 kW each, which on their turn are driven by 133 kW diesel generators and battery packs. Additionally an exhaust-cleaning system will be fitted to further reduce emissions of toxic exhaust gases and particles.
This type of propulsion combined with the exhaust-cleaning system will result in a fuel-efficient, environmentally-friendly ferry, which will be a valuable, innovative addition to the Dutch ferry fleet.
The ferry will be capable to transport a maximum of 410 persons at the same time.
Delivery of the ferry is expected somewhere later this year.
