Scandlines gets green millions from the EU

Ferry operator Scandlines has received USD 3.1 million in funds from the EU Commission, says the company. The funds will be used for battery operations and smoke cleaners on the Rødby-Puttgarden ferries.

Like DFDS, Scandlines has received new funding from the EU for more environmental ferry operations. As part of the EU program TNT-T, "Motorways of the Sea," the ferry operator has received USD 3.1 million in financial support for two ferries on the Rød-Puttgarden service, says the carrier. This marks the second time in two years that the company has received millions in funding from the EU for environmental projects.

The money will be used for installing a hybrid system that combines traditional diesel operations with electric battery operations, as well as scrubber installations on the ferries M/F Prins Richard and M/F Deutschland.
