Movitz

  • Operator Green Ferry Stockholm
  • 80 pax
  • LTO Batteries
  • Battery size 120 kWh

Power Tech Sweden delivered all the electrical construction, part of the production and all the control components to Echandia in order to complete this project. The Movitz project involved transforming a conventional passenger ferry to battery-driven without affecting speed or timetables.  Echandia’s LTO-battery system provides more power than conventional batteries, reducing the charging time to 10 minutes for a one-hour run time. 

The project took 2 years from start to finish and the supercharged ferry was put into traffic in Stockholm summer of 2014.
