  1. HYBRID FERRY TRIALS BEGIN IN KHH:

Kaohsiung recently re-launched the popular Cijian Island passenger ferry, retrofitted with an electric propulsion system, replacing the original diesel engine. It heralds Asia’s first hybrid electric ferry and, if successful, the Kaohsiung City Government plans to retrofit the rest of its diesel fleet to help reduce pollution levels … launching every 15 minutes, the ferry will help share the eight million passengers who travel the 650m route every year. It is estimated the electric propulsion will save more than 25,000 liters of fuel every year.”
