OSK-ShipTech A/S is behind the ferry design and tender procedure for a new domestic ferry for one of the western most routes in Denmark between Thyborøn and Agger. Operating in the choppy waters of the West coast in sea area class C, the ferry needs to comply with higher security level allowing water on deck compared to most other inland ferries operating in sea area class D.
To keep the vessel light and allow for high fluctuations in tides and shallow water conditions, the ferry will have a low draught and land-based ramp system. The project scope is a double-ended ferry with short loading and off-loading time, capacity of 98 passengers and 2 man-staff, subject to authority approval.
OSK-ShipTech A/S is in charge of the ferry design, project design, proposal material and the tender procedure.

The LNG-powered Samsø-ferry designed by OSK-ShipTech was rewarded today during The Danish Maritime Fair as a great example of how to think innovative ship design in relation to the local environment and infrastructure – in this case a local community with a strong green ambition based on self-sufficiency. Princess Isabella is based on modern hybrid technology and proves to show the environmental benefit of cooperation between ship and shore (biogas production).
