City of Helsinki is located in an area where the Gulf of Finland is strongly bent, forming many islands and peninsulas, on which are built and the city’s neighborhoods. Therefore, the shortest and fastest way between different parts of the city – is the sea. That is specifically for Helsinki designer Vladimir Abramov and developed the concept of water bus HKI SEAbus.
Water bus HKI SEABUS, designed specifically for Helsinki will be the usual public transport – the most convenient and fast way to move around the winding located on the shore of the city.
HKI SEABUS – a modular water bus, which consists of two parts. The first of these, the rear – this is a covered platform on which can accommodate passengers. Second, the front – it’s lift, which can move through the water without the “trailer”. This design has several advantages over conventional water buses.
First, it will HKI SEABUS more mobile, it would be better to turn and enter the narrow passages. Secondly, the two parts will reduce the time a set of passengers on board. Indeed, one tug will serve just two platforms. While one moored to the shore and gathering people, it transports through the Gulf or the Strait of another, and then, on arrival at the place, it immediately picks up the next one, already filled with passengers platform. As expected, HKI SEABUS will not operate on diesel or gasoline, but electricity. Moreover, to obtain the energy of a vehicle can in two ways. The first of them – solar panels installed on the roof of the water bus. Second – outlet to connect HKI SEABUS while parked near the shore.
Well, another nice plus of concept HKI SEABUS. This sea bus will be calculated not only by foot passengers, but also for passengers with bicycles. Here they are provided for special entry and exit, as well as special places on the deck.
