Zinus Powers Groundbreaking Zero-Emissions Ro-Pax Ferry

Zinus provides shore power for zero-emissions Ro-Pax Ferry

In a benchmark project that marks a significant milestone for the maritime industry and sustainable transportation, Zinus is proud to announce it has won a contract to supply its Autonomous Charging Solution to the world’s first zero-emissions, lightweight Ro-Pax ferry. This groundbreaking vessel is set to revolutionize maritime operations, offering a glimpse into a greener and more sustainable future for the entire industry.

A Leap Forward

This ambitious endeavour is led by Incat Tasmania, a renowned name in shipbuilding, and commissioned by their South American customer, Buquebús. The ferry will operate between Argentina and Uruguay, providing efficient and eco-friendly transportation services to as many as 2,100 passengers and 225 vehicles. Zinus will be supplying their innovative Autonomous Charging Solution, which includes the SWC200 Onboard Unit and ZPP800 Charging Tower Solution. This technology will allow the vessel to connect seamlessly to the shore and charge its batteries efficiently.

“The significance of this project cannot be overstated,” said Ronny Olson, Sales Manager at Zinus. “This Ro-Pax ferry represents a giant leap towards decarbonized maritime operations. We are thrilled to contribute our innovative charging solution to this groundbreaking initiative.”

Setting New Standards

What sets this project apart is the sheer scale and innovation involved. The fully electric ferry has an impressive overall length of 130 meters, making it the largest vessel of its kind. The battery modules and energy storage system on board are four times larger than those on any other electric or hybrid ship currently in operation. Zinus’s Autonomous Charging Solution is designed and ready to handle the increased demand, with double the current output compared to their previous systems. The output capacity for this project’s solution is an impressive 16000A DC / 8000A AC, ensuring efficient and rapid charging.

With Zinus’s charging solution, the Ro-Pax ferry will operate with zero emissions, making it a flagship example of what sustainable maritime transportation can be. Zinus is honored to be part of this groundbreaking initiative and remains committed to delivering innovative, efficient, and environmentally friendly solutions for an electrified world and a more sustainable future.
