Brødrene Aa is proud to present our new aerodynamic fast ferry design: AERO

We are known for our high-end carbon fibre fast ferries which can reduce fuel consumption by up to 40% compared to traditional vessels. With our groundbreaking “Aero”-design, we push effeciency and design even further. The sleek, one deck Aero is estimated to contribute with an additional 10% reduction in energy consumption. Good for the environment, good for the operating costs.

Leading the way to our zero emission future

The Aero-design was first presented in Trondheim, 3 September, where Brødrene Aa together with industry partners Westcon, Boreal and Ocean Hyway Cluster introduced a newly developed hydrogen fast ferry concept. The hydrogen concept shows the versatility of the Aero design, as it can be applied on a broad range of vessels.

We believe that future battery and hydrogen powered fast ferries will require light weighted structures and highly energy efficient configurations and design. We are working step by step towards a zero emission future, building on our proven experience with carbon fibre material, efficient hull designs and battery powered ferries such as Future of the Fjords.

Aero is a new improvement, built on our proven track record.

Passenger comfort

We believe it is important to create a product that is better in every way. Passenger comfort and the overall travelling experience is therefore an important trait of the Aero design concept. We aim to make Aero the preferred choice for the passengers as they experience a well designed vessel, are travelling with comfort and knowing that they are charging the waters more environmentally friendly than ever before. Though introduced as a concept, the design is ready for application and production.
