BEIJING, 13 November (BelTA - People's Daily) - The world's first 2,000-ton all-electric ship, which was developed by a Chinese enterprise, entered the water in Guangzhou, southern China's Guangdong Province, on Nov. 12, according to Chinese media.

The ship can cruise for 80 kilometers on a 2-hour charge, according to Guangzhou Shipyard International Company Ltd., developer of the ship.

The ship, which is 70.5 meters long, 13.9 meters wide, and 4.5 meters deep, fills the gap in building electric bulk cargo ships.

The total battery capacity of the ship is 2,400 kilowatt hours, equivalent to that of 40 vehicles of BYD's model E6 “Forerunner.”

In addition, the ship can be widely promoted in the future, as it consumes no oil and produces no waste.
