The world's first large-capacity battery hybrid propulsion and two-way navigation luxury Ropax ship was delivered in Guangzhou, capital of the southern province of Guangdong on Tuesday.
Apart from traditional fossil fuels, the hybrid ship will be powered by large-capacity batteries, and mainly sail between the Port of Dover in the UK and the Port of Calais in France.
A total of 1,160 large-scale batteries are set up in four rooms on board, and the capacity of the batteries reaches 8.8 megawatt-hours.
The ship does not need to turn around when entering and leaving ports, as the ship includes two pilothouses at both the bow and the stern, with the same operating equipment. The crews can navigate the ship using both pilothouses.
Equipped with entertainment and dining venues such as bars, restaurants and gyms, the ship is 230.5 meters long and 30.8 meters wide, and can hold 1,500 passengers and more than 700 vehicles.
