China launches 393-foot battery-powered container ship
The ship is the first of two built to service 600 miles of the Yangtze River.
China has just launched a 393-ft battery-powered container ship to service 600 miles of the Yangtze River. This new ship is the first of two being planned for the route and reportedly has the largest battery capacity of any ship, with 36 replaceable containerized batteries that are swapped out for fresh batteries at several points along the journey.
I wonder how long it will be before we see similar battery-powered container ships on the St. Lawrence and Mississippi?
