Victoria of Wight, the largest ferry of the Wightlink fleet, is a trendsetter for the new comfort standards and is the most luxurious ferry of its fleet.
The vessel has a state-of-the-art diesel-battery hybrid solution which allows operation with a reduced number of generators and lower emission and vibration and noise dramatically. There are four off medium speed Wartsila 6L20 generator sets 1.200 kW each for the main power source, only three of them run efficiently when sailing. Two off 408 kWh air-cooled battery packs from Corvus Energy charging by diesel generators while operating in diesel-electric mode. Victoria of Wight has an asymmetrical design because of the operation route and port condition. Four off Voith Schneider propellers used because of high maneuvering capability that required to approaching and leaving the port.
