Today, the first steel cutting of a modern, environmentally friendly, ecological hybrid ferry for the Finnish shipowner Finferries took place. The ferry with construction number P317 is the third modern plug-in hybrid ferry of this type, fully outfitted, built by CRIST for Finferries. “Elektra” is the first ferry of this type built in the European Union and the second in the world, and it turned out to be a great success on an international scale. Its innovative charging system and hybrid solution have been awarded, among others, by the international “Ship of the Year” award in the Marine Propulsion Awards 2018 competition and the CEMT 2018 award for outstanding contribution to the success of the European maritime industry, presented during the 2nd Vision for Development Forum in Gdynia.
