SAVINGS



Going electric means that operational costs will be reduced by 50 - 70 % depending national taxes and levies. The reason for this is that the energy efficiency is around 90 % when running fully electric while a diesel engine has only 30-35 % efficiency.

The following table shows the savings in some countries. Prices are not updated daily but are based on the latest available data and believed to be close to actual.

To illustrate the savings, we use an ordinary ferry with the following data as an example. Amounts in the tables are in Euro:

  • Power (kW) 125
  • Operating hours 3000
  • Electricity efficiency (%) 85%
  • Electricity consumption (MWh) 294
  • Diesel efficiency (m3/MWh) 0,35
  • Diesel consumption (M3) 95
  • CO2 emmission (tons) 260
  • Nox emission (tons) 2,6
  • Particles (kg) 115
