Dispute Between Iceland And New Polish-Built Ferry

Iceland’s Minister of Transport said the country would not pay an extra billion Icelandic kronor (€ 7.5 million) for the HERJOLFUR. This ferry is built by Crist S.A. in Gdynia, for the connection with the island of Vestmannaeyjar.
The minister says the yard has sent an extra, unexpected invoice at a very late stage.
The issue has to do with the fact that during the building process Iceland required the hybrid design to be changed into full electric.
The issue will be brought to Court.
The hope is nevertheless to have the ferry delivered.
