This news is from end of January, but still relevant: Rogaland County Municipality and NCE Maritime CleanTech have been awarded €11.7 million to develop an all-electric high-speed passenger vessel to operate between Stavanger and Hommersåk on the west coast of Norway.
This is one of the largest amounts to have been awarded to a single project in the EU’s Horizon2020 research program, and the project will help revolutionize Norwegian production of zero emission vessels.
The vessel will be built by Norwegian shipyard Fjellstrand.
The project will also conduct two studies for the same type of vessel in London and the inland waterways of Belgium.
