The Dutch company Damen has recently presented its full electric SOV 7017 ship that can be charged while it is in motion, exploiting the existing offshore wind turbines. The 70-metre-long ship hosts 60 cabins and in the full electric variant it is provided with LFP batteries for overall 15 MWh, while the other version, equipped with diesel engine, has a 10-MWh battery.

The Dutch shipbuilder relies on 36 yards spread all over the world and has developed this innovative ship that can be charged even when it is in operation, connecting to the towers of the offshore wind turbines and then adding a 4-MW charger, already developed together with MJR Power & Automation.
