The new range of vessels is a perfect match to the ProZero E-Line, featuring electric driveline and Zero Emission Vessels. And the CityHopper vessels are prepared and ready for Autonomous use as well as dual used manned operations.
The ProZero CityHopper Line is a range of light weight catamaran designs in the size from 10 to 15 meters specifically designed for urban waterway passenger transportation. The CityHoppers are built of light weight composite materials, to ensure very efficient hull lines to deliver world class performance in low energy consumption.
The ProZero CityHopper line features Electrical drivelines as a part of the ProZero E-line and, can be driven by a variety of modular drivetrains such as pod-drives, sterndrives, and shaft drives. And with the Autonomous operation options, the ProZero CityHopper range will be leading the transformation of urban waterway mobility.
The CityHoppers are equipped with well-organized and modular deck lay-outs. The glass deckhouse protects the passengers against the surrounding environment, enhances comfort and provides ideal conditions for passengers to experience the Urban waterways in comfort. Automatic sliding doors provide safe shelter and access to the deck areas, and easy boarding for disabled persons is possible over the folding gangways.
The Cityhoppers can be delivered as double ended, pod-driven vessels, for minimized docking time and for the highest operating efficiency. Or with alternative options as pr the operators’ requirements,
“The CityHopper range, is a perfect supplement to the ProZero E-line of Electric vessels to Professionals from ProZero – Workboats, and the range will support the international transformation of urban waterway mobility, and at the same time perfectly support ours and our customers commitment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals” says Managing Director at Tuco, Jonas Pedersen.
The core ambition of Tuco is to offer ProZero E-line vessels that outperform the current market standards in terms of both performance, reliability, and ease of service. We also strive to be market leaders in supplying the lightest, most durable, and reliable professional vessels.
To achieve the best balance between design customisation and delivery time, Tuco has arranged the entire design and building process around a module-based system. With the modular methodology, adjustments and customisations are quick, easy and inexpensive to make.
“The module-based design makes it possible for us to offer clients a relatively short delivery time compared to the market average while providing them with a product that is tailored to their specific needs. Modularity makes it easy to maintain a very high-quality standard and to keep the high level of reliability that we strive for” says Managing Director at Tuco, Jonas Pedersen
