Finnish manufacturer Wärtsilä has contracted Corvus Energy to supply the battery for what will be the world’s largest 100%-electric lightweight ro-pax ferry. Designed to carry 2,100 passengers, the vessel can also carry 225 cars and may point towards electric ro-ro vessels. Given the recent safety concerns surrounding the transport of EVs by ro-ro, this ship makes for an interesting proposition, one certainly worthy of keeping an eye on.
