Ferries of the future save 65% carbon dioxide
Not just power. Energy
“With the batteries, you have more of an ‘energy management system,’” Per Ole says. “It’s not only the power anymore. Your system has to be able to monitor the energy left in the batteries. Are we going to use all that energy in a moment? Then it will start up a genset and run in hybrid mode.”
Henrik Fald Hansen says that when the Tycho Brahe installed the previous DEIF system in 2013, the ship’s crew had to get used to it. “Could we rely on it? We have just been really, really satisfied in the way the DEIF system handled problems for us. We could trust it. If there was a generator that wouldn’t start or something like that, the DEIF system took care of it. And we’ve had the same feeling after installing the batteries and new DEIF system. We have definitely been confident that DEIF can handle things when there are any problems.”
