Italian passenger ferries to get Promas upgrade
Kongsberg Maritime is to supply a Promas Lite propulsion system to Italian passenger ferry operator Moby to improve propeller efficiency on three of its passenger ferries.
Moby operates a fleet of Ro-Ro passenger ferries, operating in the western Mediterranean, including routes between the Italian mainland, Sicily, and Sardinia.
Three of its vessels, the Moby Vinci, the Sharden, and the Moby Aki, will all receive a Promas Lite propulsion system, which combines rudder and propeller into one propulsion unit. In addition, two further ships, the Moby Wonder and the Moby Tommy, will receive re-bladed controllable pitch Kongsberg Kamewa propellers as part of their upgrade.
