Boreal Transport Nord AS has ordered two LNG powered ferries of Multi Maritime design.
The ferries will be built at Fiskerstrand Verft AS, and they will be delivered in the second half of 2015.
These new vessels will be used in the routes originating in Øksfjord in the northernmost county in Norway, Finnmark. The ferries have a single closed vehicle deck with space for 40 cars and a passenger lounge for 100 passengers.
The ferries have electric power transmission, with one LNG driven genset and one diesel driven genset as backup. Two azimuth thrusters provide the propulsion.
