About Säfvelången II
At the end of the 1890s, the steamboat S/S Säfvelången was built, a boat that would have a significant impact on Nääs Fabriker and the surrounding area of Lake Sävelången. S/S Säfvelången was a steam-powered vessel that transported both goods and passengers for Nääs Fabriker on Lake Sävelången. She served this purpose from her first voyage in 1897 until 1943. The boat was an important part of the transportation system for Nääs Fabriker, compensating for the poor roads in the area. The cargo transported consisted of cotton bales, coal, and groceries for the factory. From the factory, textile bales and passengers were taken to Floda.
The vessel was also used for pleasure trips, with participants from Nääs Slöjdseminarium (Crafts Seminar) boarding at Nääs Slott. In 1920, the possibilities of converting S/S Säfvelången to electric power were examined, but due to high costs, the plans were never implemented. In 2011, the idea of an electric boat on Sävelången was revived by enterprising entrepreneurs who sought project funding. A new electric boat, Säfvelången II, became a reality.
After a period of repair and maintenance, E/S Säfvelången II is back in operation. The boat is battery-powered and can accommodate 12 passengers, serving Norsesund, Ingared, Nääs Fabriker, Nääs Slott, and Floda. The vessel is eight meters long and has an environmentally friendly and silent motor that is charged with electricity. The boat has a battery life of approximately eight hours at an economical speed. The Säfvelången II project is run by Nääs & Co.
