Norwegian companies Boreal and Oma Baatbyggeri have signed an agreement for the construction of a new electrically operated ferry.
The ferry will be in operation in Hordaland (Bergen area) by January 2020, and will serve the Kinsarvik-Utne route.
The ferry contract comprises the ferry crossings Kvanndal–Utne, Kinsarvik–Utne and Skånevik–Matre–Utåker and has a duration of 9 years with an option for one further year.
The new ferry is 42m long, and will carry 80 passengers and 16 cars (or 2 semi-trailer trucks). The ferry will be built in aluminium.
