Baleària’s newest vessel, The Eleanor Roosevelt, is the world’s longest fast ferry and the first natural gas-powered fast ferry. Baleària and PressReader recently partnered to bring a digital reading experience to Eleanor Roosevelt’s passengers and promote innovative technologies focused on zeroing out emissions from maritime transportation.
Baleària claims the Eleanor Roosevelt is one of the world’s most technologically advanced vessels, incorporating smart ship technology for onboard services and relying upon big data to monitor its efficiency and emissions in real-time.
This ship incorporates numerous innovations, including improvements in interior design, where priority has been given to spaciousness and the separation between seats, and comfort onboard, incorporating a state-of-the-art stabilization system, which will reduce movement considerably.
Using PressReader onboard
In alignment with their focus on sustainability, Baleària offers their passengers access to PressReader while onboard. A valuable bonus for the company is the ability to store PressReader locally on their ship’s servers, which means no internet connection is required, other than the ship’s local Wifi.
By providing digital newspapers and magazines, Baleària’s passengers get to enjoy a more premium reading experience that is more convenient, environmentally friendly, and more hygienic.
