Identification

The Solar Ferry Boat is an environmentally-friendly passenger water transportation that does not cause air, sound, or water pollution.

The solution combines the advancements in naval architecture, electric power train and photovoltaics to build electric boats and ferries that run on solar energy. Traditional passenger boats use diesel which causes air and water pollution in addition to the vibrations and sound produced when the motor is in operation. The high operation costs of these boats are avoided thanks to the Solar Ferry Boat's efficient design and no fuel costs. For example, the daily operating cost is 1/40th that of a diesel ferry.
