Logistics provider DB Schenker has unveiled plans for an autonomous, zero-emission container feeder ship that will operate along the coast of Norway.

The team behind the fully electric vessel also includes furniture company Ekornes, vessel designer Naval Dynamics, Kongsberg and Wilhelmsen Group-backed Massterly.

The project’s backers say the new design will replace traditional feeder vessels utilised along the stretch of the Norwegian coastline around Ikornnes and Alesund.
