Alilaguna Announces the Electric “Energetica”

According the press release, Mayor Giorgio Orsoni and company inaugurated “Energia” this morning, the new eco-friendly airport transport craft that will take its place in the Alilaguna fleet (Alilaguna is the private transport service to the port and airport). Constructed by Cantieri Vizianello, the craft is equipped with an electric motor that will allow it to travel the Canal Grande in silence, without pollution or damaging emissions, keeping wave motion to a minimum without affecting power or maneuverability.

If only all craft that traveled the Grand Canal were so equipped. It’s a mossa in the right direction though, no?
