Fjord1 has signed a contract for seven new ferries, on March 5. Five ferries will be built by Havyard Ship Technology, and two by the Cemre Shipyard in Turkey.
The Havyard site belongs to the Fjord1 group of companies, with the Sævik family as major shareholder in both companies. Havyard also delivers the design.
All ferries will be fully electric-powered.
The five Norwegian-built vessels will serve the “Nordmørspakken” (Kvanne-Rykkjem, and Edøya-Sandvika), and “Hordaland 1” (Fedje-Sevrøy, and Langevåg-Buavåg).
The two Turkish vessels will operate on Seivika-Tømmervåg.
The seven ferries will be delivered to Fjord1 in the autumn 2019, since the new concession for the different routes starts on 1 January 2020.
