Designed by HAV Design AS of Norway, 84 meters long and 16.3 meters wide ferries will have a capacity of 248 passengers (including crew), 80 cars and 6 trailers. The two ferries are designed to comprise battery propulsion with fast charging batteries from shore during the disembarkation of passengers. In line with the latest environmental demands, the ferries are also arranged with a diesel-electric back up system and they can operate in fully electric mode, hybrid mode and diesel-electric mode. The sister ferries which will operate between Stranda – Liabygda (NB1113) and Eidsdal – Linge (NB1114) routes, will be constructed to provide effective, comfortable, energy efficient and environmentally friendly transport, loading & unloading of cars and passengers.
Tersan Shipyard has successfully delivered six % 100 electric ferries to Fjord1 ASA from 2017 until today. The seventh ferry, which to be named as RØDVENFJORD is still under construction and getting ready for the delivery. NB1113 and NB1114 will be the eighth and ninth vessel which Tersan Shipyard will build for Fjord1 ASA as proof of a long-term cooperation. The new ferries are planned to be delivered in the second quarter of 2023.
