Six companies have received a contract to develop a high-speed zero-emission fast ferry: Eker Design, ESNA, LMG Marin, SES-X, Transportutvikling and Umoe.

The contract was signed on 5 November 2021 by the director for transport in Trøndelag (Norway).

In May 2023, the design part of the project will be completed. The goal is then to have developed a zero-emission fast ferry with a minimum of 30% lower energy consumption compared to today’s vessels.

The project is supported by Klimasats, a support scheme under the Norwegian Environment Agency for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
