The five ferries have been outfitted at Havyard Ship Technology shipyard in Sogn, Norway.

These ferries have a capacity of 50 cars and will operate fully electric at four different ferry-crossings along the western coast of Norway. Crossing time for the ferries differs from 13 to 30 minutes depending on which ferry route they are operating in.

“With these ferries, NES has now a total of 19 fully electric or hybrid electric ferries operating in Norway”, says Jan Kåre Sundgot, project manager for these 5 projects.
