Urbanization is a global phenomenon and increased commuting is a consequence as long as people want to get into city centers. Building new or widening existing roads will not solve the problem. To leave the car for public transport might not get you faster to your goal, because the buses use the same roads. Now, as many cities are located at waterways, there might be an opportunity to use them for fast commuting.
Using the inland waterways is a part solution to the traffic congestion. But it must be green. If green city ferries shall increase their market share in the urban commuting market they have to be competitive. The electric high-speed ferries outperform their diesel driven colleagues by having no emission and only a fraction of the energy costs.
Emission free traffic solutions means not only electric vessels but an infrastructure that provides electricity or hydrogen. Electricity is should be fairly easy as there is usually a powerful grid in the cities. Hydrogen will be much more difficult to implement. Charging power needed as well as dimensioning of the battery pack depends on the route or rather the operational profile.
Green City ferries can conduct a pre-study on what is needed to go operational and green.
It will cover number and sizes of ferries and charging stations, charging power and battery size, time table (considering charging), economy and emission reduction.
Green City Ferries and Partners can deliver the complete traffic solution along with services like instant repair, maintenance, monitoring batteries etc.
Green City Ferries owns the ferries and can offer bareboat charter for different periods of time.
Green City Ferries offers a complete service package with full operations in JV with local operators.
