Fjord1, leading player in the consolidated Norwegian ferry market, has taken the deliveries of two pcs of 100% battery-powered ferries. Deliveries of the two ferries, namely Gloppefjord and Eidsfjord took place with 10 days of interval as initially planned to. The ferries will operate in Anda-Lote route which is the eight busiest ferry crossing in Norway.
During a limited stay of about nine minutes they will charge their batteries at both ports with high voltage. Designed by Multi Maritime the ferries are also equipped with vacuum docking device ensuring safe and proper connection during loading-unloading without any necessity to run the propellers during such operation. In addition to zero-emission the ferries are also equipped with auto-crossing feature to provide maximum efficient manoeuvring.
