These unmanned electric vessels will set sail in Europe this summer

Dutch manufacturers have created what’s being called the “Tesla of the canals,” a fully electric, emission-free container barge that will operate from the ports of Antwerp, Amsterdam, and Rotterdam starting this summer. The barges are designed to operate without a crew, although the vessels will be manned in their first period of operation. The vessels are fitted with a power box giving them 15 hours of power, and since there’s no traditional engine room, the boats will have up to 8 personal extra space. 23,000 trucks are expected to be removed from the roads as a result of these new barges.
