Posted by Michelle Howard

Danfoss Editron was commissioned by the Suomenlahden Telakka Oy shipyard to provide a diesel-electrical drivetrain system for the Prostvik 1 ferry, which operates in Finland's Turku archipelago.

The entire diesel-powered propulsion of the ship will be retrofitted to a diesel-electrical drivetrain system to help improve its overall efficiency and reduce its emissions.

Operated by Finferries, Prostvik 1 is one of two ferries operating on the route between Nauvo and Korpoo, making it vitally important to the local population. Built in 1983, the 50m long vessel can carry approximately 140 passengers and 30 vehicles each journey.

The Prostvik 1 ferry will arrive at the Suomenlahden Telakka Oy shipyard in late August, before returning to operation by the end of November.
