Vard has secured a ferry order from Boreal. The new car- and passenger ferry features a fully electrical battery solution for continuous electric operations, and is specially designed for environmentally friendly operations in the Norwegian fjords.
The 74m ferry, designed by Multi Maritime, will have a total capacity of up to 60 cars and 199 persons.
The hull of the vessel will be built by Vard Braila in Romania. Delivery of the ferry is scheduled from Vard Brevik in Norway in Q3, 2019.
The ferry will commence operations in Norway from January 2020, crossing Kvanndal-Utne at the west coast of Norway, where Boreal has been awarded a nine-year contract with the Norwegian government.
