New state-of-the-art hybrid ferry ensures a more environmentally-friendly crossing
In the future, a state-of-the-art hybrid ferry will connect Thyborøn and Agger Tange in the north of Jutland, Denmark, and bridge the Limfjord.
When commuters, freighters and tourists board the ferry between Thyborøn and Agger in the future, it will be a ferry with a green and climate-friendly profile. Lemvig and Thisted municipalities have invested DKK 107 million in a new, modern hybrid ferry and two new ferry berths. The new investment has made the crossing between Thyborøn and Agger Tange not only more stable, safe and comfortable, but also more environmentally-friendly.
The ferry, which annually carries 7,000 trucks, 60,000 cars and 145,000 passengers, is a good, future-proof investment for both municipalities and is of great importance to the business community, to the local population and to tourists visiting the area.
The ferry supports Lemvig and Thisted Municipalities’ green and climate-friendly profile. It is state-of-the-art and is powered by an electric motor with batteries that are charged by a diesel generator. In other words, the generator generates electricity, and the batteries store the surplus energy, which would otherwise have been lost. The new ferry also ensures efficient operation and flexibility in relation to the future technological development.
