Brødrene Aa presents a new aerodynamic fast ferry design
Brødrene Aa is known for our high-end carbon fibre fast ferries which can reduce fuel consumption by up to 40% compared to traditional vessels.
With its groundbreaking “Aero”-design, company push efficiency and design even further. The sleek, one deck Aero is estimated to contribute with an additional 10% reduction in energy consumption. Good for the environment, good for the operating costs.
The Aero-design was first presented in Trondheim, 3 September, where Brødrene Aa together with industry partners Westcon, Boreal and Ocean Hyway Cluster introduced a newly developed hydrogen fast ferry concept. The hydrogen concept shows the versatility of the Aero design, as it can be applied on a broad range of vessels.
Brødrene Aa believes that future battery and hydrogen powered fast ferries will require light weighted structures and highly energy efficient configurations and design. Company is working step by step towards a zero emission future, building on its proven experience with carbon fibre material, efficient hull designs and battery powered ferries such as Future of the Fjords.
Though introduced as a concept, the design is ready for application and production.
