Cochin Shipyard to Build Autonomous Electric Vessels for ASKO

India-based Cochin Shipyard has received the order for two (+2) 67m autonomous electric vessels for emission-free transport of goods across the Oslofjord.

The ships are for Norwegian logistics and supply chain company ASKO. The capacity will be 16 trailers.

The ferries will be managed by Massterly, a company created by Wilhelmsen and KONGSBERG in 2018. It is the world’s first autonomous shipping company.

The project is partially funded by the Norwegian State.
