Stena Line signed a contract with Callenberg Technology Group for batteries with a capacity of 1 MWh, which will be installed on STENA JUTLANDICA.
This ro-pax operates between Gothenburg and Frederikshavn.
The battery project will be completed step by step.
- Step one: switching on battery power for bow thrusters and maneuvering when berthing in port.
- Step two: an extended battery operation is connected to the propellers, meaning that Stena Jutlandica can be operated on electricity within around 10 nautical miles, equal to the distance between Göteborg and Vinga Lighthouse.
- Step three: battery capacity is further expanded and a vessel can operate about 50 nautical miles of electricity corresponding to the distance between Gothenburg and Frederikshavn.
