CLAIMS

1 . A ferry slip (100) comprising a vehicle driveway (41 ,42) arranged on a quayside (60), characterized in that the ferry slip (100) comprises an elongate fluid cylinder unit (20) connected to the quayside (60) and extending longitudinally away from the quayside (60) in a seawards direction (x), the fluid cylinder unit (20) having a support element (10) at its seawards end, and wherein

the fluid cylinder unit (20) is fluidly connected to an accumulator unit (70) via a fluid distribution system (80).

A ferry slip (100) according to claim 1 , wherein the elongate fluid cylinder unit (20) is arranged substantially horizontally.

A ferry slip (100) according to any one of the preceding claims, further comprising a ramp (40), wherein the vehicle driveway (41 ,42) extends from the quayside (60) onto the ramp (40), and wherein the ramp (40) is vertically movable by means of a ramp lifting device (30).

A ferry slip (100) according to any one of the preceding claims, further comprising a fluid power unit (90) fluidly connected to the fluid

distribution system (80).

A ferry slip (100) according to any one of the preceding claims, further comprising an electronic control unit (200).

A ferry slip (100) according to any one of the preceding claims, further comprising a lifting device (21 ,22) arranged to move the fluid cylinder unit (20) in the vertical direction.

7. A ferry slip (100) according to any one of the preceding claims, wherein the lifting device (21 ,22) comprises a first lifting unit (21 ) arranged to engage the fluid cylinder unit (20) at a quayside half of the fluid cylinder unit (20) and a second lifting unit (22) arranged to engage the fluid cylinder unit (20) at a seawards half of the fluid cylinder unit (20).

A ferry slip (100) according to the preceding claim, wherein the first and second lifting units (21 ,22) are configured to maintain the fluid cylinder unit (20) in a horizontal arrangement.

A ferry slip (100) according to any one of the preceding claims, further comprising a support frame (300) connected to the fluid cylinder unit (20) and configured to support the fluid cylinder unit (20) in at least one of a vertical direction (y) and

a direction transverse on the seawards direction (x).

10. A ferry slip (100) according to the previous claim, wherein the support frame (300) is movable in the seawards direction (x) along a frame structure (301 ).

1 1 . A method of operating a ferry slip (100) according to any one of the

preceding claims, comprising the steps

bringing the support element (10) into engagement with a ferry (400), applying a braking force from the fluid cylinder unit (20) on the ferry (400) via the support element (10) while allowing the ferry (400) to move a first distance (I) in a direction parallel to the seawards direction (x), generating a braking energy in the fluid cylinder unit (20), and

transferring the braking energy from the fluid cylinder unit (20) to the accumulator unit (70) via the fluid distribution system (80).

12. A method according to claim 1 1 , further comprising the step

transferring an acceleration energy from the accumulator unit (70) to the fluid cylinder unit (20) via the fluid distribution system (80),

applying an acceleration force from the fluid cylinder unit (20) on the ferry (400) via the support element (10) while moving the ferry (400) a second distance (I) in a direction parallel to the seawards direction (x).

13. A method according to claim 12, wherein:

the first distance (I) is: (i) larger than, (ii) smaller than, or (iii) identical to the second distance; and/or

the braking energy is: (i) higher than the acceleration energy or (ii) lower than the acceleration energy; and/or

the braking force is: (i) higher than the acceleration force or (ii) lower than the acceleration force, and/or

the average braking force over the first distance is: (i) higher than the average acceleration force over the second distance or (ii) lower than the average acceleration force over the second distance.

14. A method according to any one of claims 1 1 -13, further comprising the step

operating a sensor (210) to provide a parameter representative of a velocity (v) of the ferry (400),

adjusting at least one of: (i) a fluid pressure in the accumulator unit (70), and (ii) the first distance (I) as a function of the parameter.

15. A method according to any one of claims 1 1 -14, wherein the ferry (400) has a hybrid-electric or a full-electric propulsion plant.
