Safe & reliable transport in remote areas

Modular Ferries

Fit for purpose

Modular Ferries

Our Modular Ferries provide customers with an entire vessel configured out of container-sized units. The ferries can easily be transported to remote areas to be assembled on site.

Based on robust and proven technology, the ferries are also easy to maintain, resulting in reliable and predictable operations. The modular system means that the design can be modified, making it suitable for today but also for the future.

This fit for purpose design allows operators to provide safe and sustainable crossings.
