Via Facebook I recently received a message from Marine Insight about a new car carrier ‘The City of Petersburg’. The special design is so made that it reduces the waste and cuts the air resistance by almost 50 percent. The ship has been built with a special purpose of transporting the company’s ecp-friendly leaf electric vehicles. This unconventional eco-friendly ship can accomodate 2000 cars and weighs 21.000 tons. During my visit at Port of Tyne it was possible to accompany a pilot on the car carrier’ The City of Rotterdam’. The pilot however advised me to choose a different ship because the bridge was like a cockpit with only water around. See for more information Marine Insight.
