A small selection of impressions from my latest visits at the Rødby – Puttgarden crossing. The photos were shot in a period when Scandlines took the first steps toward an emission free operation of the ‘floating bridge’ or ‘traffic machine’, which the very profitable high-frequent route best can be described as.
The Danish/German ferry company was a pioneer in battery/hybrid propulsion on large ro/pax ferries in the previous decade. And the company strives to continue further ahead in the coming years toward fully electric operation.
That will not only be an admirable technical achievement, but also an important political statement for what a new generation of ferries evidently would be able to contribute with as an alternative to a fixed Fehmarn Belt Link.
