Flagships Ferry Taking Shape in Turkey
The zero-emission hydrogen ferry bound for Stavanger will sail under the name HIDLE (Norled). The LMG-designed ferry is currently under construction at Ada Yard in Istanbul, Turkey.
She will operate on the route Judaberg-Helgøy on the west coast of Norway, with six stops.
Daily operation will see her sailing a distance of 140 nm during 19 hours of operation (6 a.m. – 1 a.m.).
The H2 fuel consumption is estimated to be 460 kg/day, which is comparable to ca. 1900 litres / day of (bio)diesel
