22.02.2019New thrusters on Scandlines’ hybrid ferries will reduce underwater noise and air emissions in the Fehmarn Belt

All thrusters – the ships’ propulsion systems – on Scandlines’ four hybrid ferries on the route between Puttgarden (Germany) and Rødby (Denmark) will be exchanged with new thrusters that allow a homogenous water flow, which gives less noise and vibration. The exchange lessens the environmental impact significantly. Reduced underwater noise and less vibration can improve the conditions for the marine life in the Fehmarn Belt area – among these the harbour porpoises. Furthermore, easier water flow during propulsion ultimately reduces emissions, including CO2.
