Enova is owned by the Norwegian Ministry of Climate and Environment, and contributes to reduced greenhouse gas emissions, development of energy and climate technology.
Ferry company Bastø Fosen invests in battery power for the new ferry under construction for the Horten – Moss route, with a high voltage charging station in Horten. Enova supports the project with just over NOK 31 million.
At the start, the ferry will run for 64.5% on electricity. Later on, when a charging station will also be available in Moss, the new ferry will go 100% electric. Bastø Fosen will then consider rebuilding two recent vessels, so that these too can go completely electric.
Moss-Horten annually transports 1.8 million vehicles and 3.7 million passengers across the Oslo Fjord. The new vessel will, as of January 2021, enter as one of five vessels on the connection.
