Together, Lemvig and Thisted Kommune has decided on a hybrid ferry to promote sustainable transport in one of Denmark’s most western areas. The ferry is expected to be ready in spring 2018, and OSK-ShipTech A/S is behind ferry design, project design, proposal material and tender procedure.
Operating in the choppy waters off the West coast in sea area class C, the new Thyborøn-Agger 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.
