Managing Director FRS

The FRS fleet consists of a wide variety of vessels: High-speed catamarans (HSC), solar-powered ferries, traditional passenger vessels, water cabs, and conventional RoRo and RoPax vessels. FRS has been operating solar-powered electric ferries in Berlin since 2014. 40 percent of the energy needed to operate these ships is provided directly by the sun each year. This means the ships save around 22.2 t of CO₂ per year. Since 2015, two more solar-powered e-ferries have supplemented the fleet.
