Norwegian company Boreal, owned by Hong Kong-based company China Everbright Limited ordered two ferries in The Netherlands.
The Wärtsilä designed plug-in hybrid ferries will be built by the Holland Shipyards Group, and put into operation on the Abelnes-Andabeløy and Launes-Kvellandstrand routes.
Boreal signed a contract with Agder County Municipality on the operation of the two ferry connections in December last year. The 10+2 year contract starts on September 1, 2021.
