Scandinavia is the first region in the world to rely increasingly on battery-powered, and thus environmentally friendly, technologies in the shipbuilding industry. After "Ampere", the world's first electrical ferry in Norway, Siemens has received a follow-up order of the Finnish shipping company FinFerries. Ampere was put into operation in Norway in May 2015, and has traveled a distance equivalent to more than 1.5 times around the equator. With the change from diesel propulsion to battery, Norwegian ship owner Norled has reduced the cost of fuel by 60 percent. For FinFerries, Siemens has now tailor-made a suitable technical solution for Finland's first emission-free ferry. This follow-up order confirms Siemens' pioneer position delivering green solutions in the shipbuilding industry.
