Update on Tycho Brahe project

2017-06-19

ABB is the supplier of the power and propulsion systems onboard Tycho Brahe, the world’s largest battery-driven ferry operating between Helsingör and Helsinborg. The modernization of the vessel (first commissioned in 1991) includes the supply of batteries, an energy storage control system and onboard DC Grid technology. At both ends of the route, ABB is also supplying fully automated shore-side charging stations that will optimize the connection time and maximize the charging period of the vessel. This pioneering technology is the world’s first automated shore-side charging solution that leverages 3D laser scanning and wireless communication between ship and shore.

In the pre-commissioning tests we have experienced a technical challenge in the charging connection procedures under certain conditions. It is of utmost importance to us to resolve this issue and our engineers are working relentlessly to make the charging stations fully operational to the highest quality standards. We are working closely with HH Ferries to ensure that the vessel can be commissioned as soon as possible.
