The ELMAR project has invited for a study trip to Bergen and surroundings/ Norway from 17-20 September 2018. More than 20 companies from the South Baltic area used this oportunity and joined the trip to learn more about a.o. electric ferries and passenger vessels under real world operation. Among others, participants visited the worlds first fully electric car ferry "Ampere", which serves the line Lavik- Oppedal since 3 years and had the chance to talk to those companies, which were responsible for its realisiation (Fjellstrand shipyard, Siemens Norway, Stemmann, etc.) and Norled, who is in charge for its daily operation. A summary of the trip with more detailed information can be downloaded below. The ELMAR project will organise further study trips in 2019 and 2020. They will be announced on this webpage.
