Cap de Barbaria: Spain’s first electric ferry

Baleària's very first green ferry is called the Cap de Barbaria and has recently started operating between Ibiza and Formentera. Sustainability is of paramount importance at Baleària and in recent years the Spanish ferry company has invested in sustainable innovations of their ferries.

The Cap de Barbaria is currently the most eco-friendly vessel in Baleària’s fleet. This ferry consumes little energy when sailing at sea. And it sails completely electrically, without any CO2 emissions, during manoeuvring and docking in the port.

The Cap de Barbaria is named after a fascinating nature reserve in Formentera. Cap de Barbaria with its 100 meters high impressive cliff is the most southerly point of the Balearic archipelago.

Baleària in the future: hydrogen-powered ferry

Baleària is simultaneously launching another sustainable project with this ship. The Cap de Barbara will serve as a test lab for the use of green hydrogen. The new ferry has been made ‘H2 ready' so the shipping company can master sailing on hydrogen.[1]
