Thailand debuts Electric Ferries

The Bangkok Metropolitan Authority (BMA) of Thailand has launched eight 47.5ft fiberglass vessels through the MariArt Shipyard, replacing the previous 205hp diesel engines with twin Torqeedo Cruise 10kW electric outboards, powered by 12 Power 24-3500 lithium batteries and four fast chargers.

The vessels are to serve as 30-passenger water taxis in a fleet of ferries operated by BMA’s Enterprise Krungthep Thanakom Company (KT BMA) on a 5km daily route between an express ferry on the Chao Phraya river, the Saen Saep canal boats and the MRT subway station at Hua Lamphong, departing every 15 minutes.
