The “Canaille” is a 12m hybrid ship. Its propulsion is therefore mixed and torque electric and thermal energy. It was designed to meet the increasing constraints of ecology, and was commissioned by a shipowner from the city of Cassis, to operate in the heart of the Calanques National Park located between the city of Marseille and Cassis .
Hybrid propulsion allows this shipowner to make all visits to the creeks in 100% electric. This mode of propulsion alone makes it possible to reduce discharges at sea and in the atmosphere, in a particularly sensitive zone. The power delivered by the thermal component of the ship makes it possible to ensure the autonomy of the ship and the speed of transport of passengers in the area.
The silence that characterizes the electric propulsion will be very quickly appreciated by the 35 passengers present on board, as well as by the local residents or the walkers on the ground. A future concept that JEAN and FRASCA design has also developed for other passenger ships, in Corsica or on Lake Evian.
Upon entering the Clanques National Park, they make sure that their customers are aware of the protection of the heritage of the national park and responsible behavior in this natural environment. The rules of conduct are simple, dictated by common sense and the desire to respect nature and other users.
