Zero Emission Ferry Funding
A Belfast Maritime Consortium led by Artemis Technologies won a $42m UK Government innovation grant to develop zero emissions ferries in the city. Counting investment from partners, the total project investment will reach close to $75m over the next four years. A spin- off from the America’s Cup sailing team, Artemis Racing, Artemis
Technologies is led by double Olympic gold medallist Iain Percy OBE.
Salient design details include a design capable of carrying up to 350 passengers, propelled by “an electric hydrofoil propulsion system is
Hybrid for Live Fish Ship totally unique and will enable vessels of the future to operate with up to 90% less energy, and produce zero emissions during operation,” said
A 77m diesel-electric live fsh carrier will

Mek. Verksted AS shipyard in Vestnes, Norway, for Nova Sea Service AS, one of Norway’s larg- est producers of Atlantic farmed salmon. Due delivery in September 2021, Færøysund is Aas
Mek. Verksted AS second newbuild for Nova

Based on a proprietary design, the live fsh carrier includes a 3000 cu. m. load compartment which can be separated into two wells, and a pressure loading and unloading system. Its water treatment, oxygenation and circulation systems use ultraviolet light to eliminate pathogens and flters to control fsh lice.
