Torghatten Orders Eco Ferry

Norwegian ferry operator Torghatten Trafikkselskap AS has signed a contract with compatriot shipyard Fiskerstrand Verft AS for the construction of a Multi Maritime-designed car and passenger ferry, with an option for two additional ferries.

The ferry will have the capacity to carry 60 cars (10 on a hoistable deck) and 249 passengers and crew.

It is designed for operations in exposed waters and the vehicle space is completely covered. The passenger lounge features panoramic views with large window surfaces. Passengers will have access to large external deck areas.

The ferry will have a hybrid diesel-electric propulsion. The diesel engines are capable of running completely on biodiesel.

The new ferry will operate on the Tjøtta-Forvik route.
