On Monday 28 May, Danish national broadcaster DR airs the television programme Coast to coast, which crosses Öresund on battery power. The host, Christian Degn, embarks on Tycho Brahe where Captain Jørgen Damgaard Hansen, HH Ferries Group, explains the battery project.
Aurora and Tycho Brahe are converted to battery operation at a total investment of around SEK 300 million. INEA, the EU’s executive agency for innovation and network, supports the project with around SEK 120 million.
