Ferry NESVIK left the Westcon Yards to start its career with Norled.

The electric ferry has been designed by LMG Marin. It will be used on Hjelmeland-Nesvik-Skipavikis. This is a ferry route which crosses the Hjelmelandsfjord and Ombofjord in Rogaland, Norway.

NESVIK is the sister ferry to HYDRA, which is also being built at Westcon. Both vessels are designed to use as little energy as possible. HYDRA will be the world’s first hydrogen-powered ferry, but NESVIK can also be upgraded to hydrogen in the long term.
