PICTURE OF THE WEEK – Zero-Emission Ecoflow Propulsor for Tram project


Another milestone within the fast ferry segment has been reached with Servogear, on the delivery of the world’s first purely battery-driven EU-funded fast ferry Tram to operate on a multi-stop commuter route. The vessel will be built by Norwegian yard Fjellstrand for Kolumbus and will operate in the Stavanger area. Building will start in May 2021 and the vessel is due for operation in 2022.

For many decades, Servogear has been developing class leading Ecoflow Propulsor system, superior when it comes to efficiency and range. “We are truly proud that Servogear, yet again, is chosen as the preferred propulsion partner for another innovative project. In a world where we all need to do our outmost to get the most out of every drop of available energy, we are very happy that our Ecoflow system is getting the attention of an ever-increasing number of clients. The Tram-project is a very future-looking project, and we are grateful for being part of this,” said Torleif Stokke, CEO of Servogear.

Servogear is based on the west coast of Norway and specialises in the supply of efficient propulsion systems for almost fifty years.
