Albion Zero ferry

To reduce environmental impact and carbon footprint Albion Marine's team has developed a zero emissions electric ferry, "Albion Zero". The ferry meets all requirements, complies with Sulphur Cap 2020 and other regulations. Albion Zero is compatible to work with renewable sources of energy. The ferry is designed to be fitted with a complete range of Albion Marine technical solutions that will work seamlessly to provide optimal level of reliability and efficiency. Our team has developed a unique concept of solar charging for electric ferry. Albion Zero has been specifically designed for river crossing in Canada. Canada has more than 8,000 rivers across the nation. This concept is well suited for remote and Northern communities with abundance of solar energy during the summer months, no gird power and logistic difficulties in delivering other types of fuels. Our ferry is perfect for renewable energy

The collapse of the oil market has seen prices of marine fuels compliant with the IMO 2020 sulphur regulation dwindle providing some ease for shipowners in the unprecedented economic crash.

The current upheaval has collapsed marine gas oil low-sulphur (MGO LS) prices at the fastest pace in recent memory, even exceeding the demise of the Great Financial Crisis and oil crash in 2014.
