Cemre shipyard launches Fjord 1 electric ferries

The second of three electric ferries being built for Norway’s largest ferry company has been launched at Cemre Shipyard in Turkey.

The first ferry for Florø-based Fjord1, Husavik, was launched on December 9.

They were designed by Multi Maritime and Havyard Ship Technology.

Two of the ferries to be constructed will operate between Brekstad-Valset.

The third will operate between Husavik and Sandvikvåg in the county of Hordaland.

Fjord 1 has also signed a contract with the Havyard Group for the design and construction of five new ferries to operate on the Hareid-Sulesund and Magerholm-Sykkylven connections.

The 111-metre ferries can carry 120 cars each. Three will operate in Hareid-Sulesund and two in Magerholm-Sykkylven.

All five ferries will operate with zero- and low-emission technology.
