By | 2024 Newsletter week 01 | No Comments

Norled won the tender for the ferry connections Stokkvågen-Lovund and Stokkvågen-Træna after delivering a concept that cuts emissions by up to 90%.

Three new battery-hybrid ferries will enter the connection in 2027.

The three new buildings that will join the connection will all have capacity for 60 passenger cars and 250 passengers including crew.

The battery capacity for each of the ferries is approximately 8,000 kWh, making them the ferries with the largest battery capacity in Norway.

Norled has entered into a letter of intent with the shipyard Havyard for the construction of three of the battery ferries and also has an option for a fourth vessel.

LMG Marine has designed the ferries.
