May 17, 2024

Torghatten Nord has won the tender for the operation of the Festvåg-Misten ferry service.

A new 60-car electric ferry is on its way.

“It’s very satisfying to win this tender and to be back on the Mistenfjord from January next year. It is particularly pleasing that we will be introducing a new all-electric ferry on the route starting in 2027,” says Marius Martin Hansen, CEO of Torghatten Nord.

A few days ago, Nordland County Council announced that Torghatten Nord had won the tender. The actual operator is Fjord1.

The tender will start on 1 January 2025, and the contract will last for 10 years.
