Fassmer delivers an all-electric boat

BERNE. Just before Easter, Fassmer delivered an all-electric boat made of aluminium to the “Systems Engineering for Future Mobility” institute, which is part of the Germany Aerospace Centre (DLR). According to a statement made by the shipyard, the RHB 8.0 is an eight-metre long custom product that can be fully operated from land, in order to test, for instance, berthing manoeuvres. Besides focussing on autonomous shipping, the boat will be used for field trials of new regulations and navigational properties of vessels.
