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.
