On the way, even in difficult conditions.

Respecting our specialist knowledge, we were able to expand our ferry business by mutual agreement and on an equal footing. HGDF proves the special trust in the cooperation especially in challenging situations.

Managing Director FRS

The FRS fleet consists of a wide variety of ships: High speed catamarans, solar-powered ferries, traditional passenger ships, water taxis, and conventional RoRo/RoPax ships. FRS has been operating solar-powered electric ferries in Berlin since 2014. 40 percent of the energy required for ship operation is fed in directly from the sun every year. This makes the ships save around 22.2 t of CO₂ per year. Two more solar-powered electric ferries have been added to the fleet since 2015.
