  • Three more vessels to be converted in zero-emission

Fjord1 has contracted Norwegian Electric Systems (NES) to act as system integrator and deliver power control, distribution and battery systems on three ferries set to be converted from gas and diesel propulsion to zero-emission battery operation.

NES will also deliver equipment and control systems for four battery charging stations.

After this, NES will have installed battery systems on board 21 zero-emission ferries.

Once converted, the three vessels will operate on the Drag – Kjøpsvik and Bognes – Skarberget ferry services in North Norway, from December 2022.
