Well done to the MCA who are providing guidance on the carriage of electric vehicles onboard passenger roll-on/roll-off ferries.

Their Introduction highlights the issues in giving guidance, however, they have decided that some is better than none, which it is.

We are all navigating the issues that arise with electric vehicles and guidance will have to be updated as users, carriers, and regulators learn more. I know that MCA is aware of this.

It is a good start! However, until we are certain that risk can be eliminated do we really need to allow charging whilst at sea?
