About Scandlines
Scandlines is a modern and innovative ferry operator with a green vision for the future, taking pride in being a resilient culture based on strong German-Danish cooperation and maritime history dating back to 1872.

Scandlines have set a clear vision to reach a green ferry operation, continuously aiming at finding the best and most sustainable technical solutions. Thus, Scandlines offers a fleet of hybrid ferries, where petrol or diesel is combined with electricity, alongside noise-reducing thrusters that produce less underwater noise and further reduce CO2 emissions, and a rotor sail that is powered on the wind.
