INCAT to commence design study for new electric-hybrid ferry with DFDS

On 23 April 2024 Incat Tasmania announced a new partnership with Danish Shipping and Logistics Company DFDS to complete a design study for the construction of a cutting-edge electric-hybrid ferry.

The 72m ferry, which will have the option to convert to fully electric, is suited to a number of ferry routes across Europe.

Incat CEO Stephen Casey says the Tasmanian shipbuilder is ideally placed to design and build this next generation of ships for the world market.

‘Since launching the design of our series produced electric ships last November there has been significant interest from many ferry operators, and we’re excited to work with DFDS on their projects,’ Mr Casey said.

‘The Incat 72m series is offered in a fully electric model that is suited to many ferry networks around the world.

‘Incat’s industry leading design and construction capabilities and our commitment to sustainability, make us the logical choice for ferry operators who want a vessel of the highest quality whilst minimising their environmental footprint.’
