About Ecoresan

Ecoresan has developed a concept for sustainable, environmentally sound and efficient local commuter transport services on water and together with our technology partners plan to conduct a pilot project beginning in the summer of 2014. Ecoresan and Echandia Marine, who have developed the solution for powering our vessels using a hybrid electric drive train, are supported by The Swedish Energy Agency. The concept has been presented to the Stockholm County Council. It is possible that the project, which has so far taken four years, will be the partner that the Stockholm County Council will select to operate a full scale trial.

Electrically powered vessels not only drastically reduce the amount of greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere, they are considerably quieter than traditional alternatives. Ecoresan’s vessels can carry 175 passengers and 20 bicycles. Their hull form, power solution – including energy storage, interiors and all consumables on board have been designed to have as little impact on the environment as possible using current technology – that’s water, air and noise.
