Wellington Electric Ferry to be Fully Operational in 2022

East by West Ferries’ all-electric ferry is expected to be in the water next month, but it may be a year or more before it can be recharged quickly enough to do a full schedule of sailings across Wellington harbour. Electric charging company Retnya is co-ordinating the charging infrastructure for the ferry, which claimed it would initially take from under an hour to 90 minutes to fully recharge the ferry after each return trip across the harbour, depending on the weather, wind, tides and passenger numbers. That is expected to mean the zero-emissions ferry will be able to cover five or six of the 16 daily return sailings operated by East by West.
