The ferry boat in Ostend is a popular public transport service, used on a daily basis by local school children, commuters and tourists. It can transport up to 50 people and 20 bikes. This boat service aims to be a sustainable mode of transport and uses low sulphur diesel while the boat is heated by recovered heat from the engines.
New pontoons were recently installed on each side of the harbour to facilitate access to the boats, especially for people in wheel chairs. The local authorities wanted to light these pontoons with a sustainable solution that would not hinder access.
