Tersan Shipyard delivers electric ferry
Tersan Shipyard in Turkey has delivered the second of the two all-electric, plug-in ferries built for Norway’s Fjord1.
Designed by MM, the 122.6-metre by 17.2-metre Horgefjord will enter service on the seven-nautical-mile Krokeide-Hufthamar route serving the island community of Austevoll, just south of Bergen.
The service speed is 14 knots.
Equipped with a battery hybrid propulsion system that require a 10-minute charging period, the vessels are also fitted with diesel generators for normal operations in the event shore power is unavailable.
