Newbuilding contract for a Norwegian ferry

By | 2023 Newsletter week 50 | No Comments

Remontowa Shipbuilding has signed a contract with Torghatten Nord AS to construct a hybrid-powered double-ended ferry for the Stornes-Bjørnerå route in Norway (Arctic Circle region).

Newbuilding “B620” will be fitted with two azimuth thrusters with vertically mounted electric motors powered either by batteries or, in case of emergency, by generating sets.

Normally, the batteries will be recharged from the shore grid during unloading/loading. This will occur relatively frequently, as a single vessel transit will take no more than 12 minutes.

Design: The Norwegian Ship Design Company AS + Remontowa Marine Design & Consulting Delivery: Q1, 2026.
