Revolutionary Wärtsilä’s wireless charging system
According with information issued by MF FOLGEFONN, Wärtsilä’s wireless charging system has been successfully tested. Its automatic wireless induction charging system was tested on a hybrid powered coastal ferry. The ferry is owned by Norled, one of Norway’s largest ferry operators.
This revolutionary system would eliminate the cable connection between vessel and shore, and secure and facilitate operations for connection/disconnection. More than 1 MW is said the system to be capable to transfer based on induction.
