Vision for wireless-charging electric harbor craft fleet in Singapore

Read the description of an approach to keep electric ships in Singapore’s harbor charged. Some of the ideas, like wireless ship charging, have not yet been tried.

Singapore is one of the leaders in the race to decarbonize its harbor. By 2030 only clean vessels will be allowed.

Having a charging infrastructure is central to the strategy. The Coastal Sustainability Alliance (CSA) in Singapore is leading the technology initiative.

Norway’s fjords welcome another pair of autonomous vessels

Norway is a leader in the development of clean transport, especially maritime. They have been experimenting with autonomous ships for several years.

Here are two new ships, which will not operate autonomously at the start, but will sail with a crew of 4. However, the goal is to test the systems for two years, and become autonomous after that.

They will transport products for a grocery along the coast of Norway. There is a plan for an all-electric corridor, including these ships and a fleet of electric trucks for the start and end parts of the trip.

So don’t say it can’t be done!
