CCN’s Vanadis wins ‘Green’ award at CannesSep 16, 2019 by Triton Staff
M/Y Vanadis, a 102-foot (31.2m) all-aluminum yacht launched this year by Italian shipyard Cerri Cantieri Navali, has won the “Green Yachts” category at the World Yachts Trophies in Cannes. It’s the fourth model in the yard’s Fuoriserie line, and the third consecutive win for CCN in this category.
According to CCN, Vanadis is the first model in its E-prop line of hybrid propulsion vessels, as well as the first made-in-Italy motor yacht, to obtain the Lloyd’s Register’s certification as a “Hybrid Power” craft.
Equipped with two Schottel STP 150 FP twin-propeller Azimuth thrusters driven by a Siemens hybrid system that includes both traditional diesel engines and electric engines supplied by generators or batteries, the yacht is able to cruise in diesel, diesel-electric, or full electric mode.
A set of high-energy lithium ion batteries supply most of the onboard utilities, allowing the yacht to remain at anchor at zero emissions for up to 17 hours and to cruise at limited speed for three hours with a comfortably high power load, according to CCN.
The award ceremony was hosted by magazine Yachts France on Sept. 14 at Hotel Carlton in Cannes.
“This award fills us with pride and confirms we have embarked upon the right path,” stated CCN CEO Diego Michele Deprati.
