Astilleros Armon shipyard delivered the first of 12 new hybrid fast ferries for Liberty Lines

High-speedThe first of 12 new hybrid monohull fast ferries for Italian operator Liberty Lines has been delivered by shipbuilder Astilleros Armon in Spain. The 39.5-metre VITTORIO MORACE is capable of transporting 251 passengers at speeds of 30 knots and can also operate in a fully electric mode at speeds of up to 10 knots.

VITTORIO MORACE is equipped with Rolls-Royce integrated MTU hybrid propulsion systems, each comprising two 16V4000M65L engines, two gearboxes, two e-motors and electric systems, two variable-speed gensets, a battery system, switchboard, an electrical power management system and an MTU hybrid automation system.

The flexible hybrid drivetrain features a "zero emissions" mode to enter and exit ports, while the vessel will also be able to operate in a high-speed hybrid mode, allowing for efficient operations while simultaneously recharging its batteries.

The main deck of each vessel features seating for 166 passengers, five bathrooms and a kiosk/bar amidship. The upper deck seats a further 85 passengers, with an additional two toilets. Large luggage racks are situated throughout the vessel's two passenger cabins, in addition to overhead luggage bins.

The vessels will be delivered between 2024 and 2029. Next up being CRISTINA M.
