In today’s spotted we bring you the image of Norwegian ferry operator Fjord1’s newly built ferry Hornelen seen at the port of Florø, Norway, following her maiden voyage.

Hornelen and her sister vessel Losna were ordered by Fjord1 at Ada shipyard in Turkey in January 2015. The vessels were designed by Multi maritime.

Fjord1 contracted ship delivery specialist Redwise Maritime Services to deliver both vessels under own power, on their maiden voyage.

The Hornelen is classed by DNV-GL and equipped with two Caterpillar C32 main engines. The 74 meter vessel can carry 199 passengers, 60 cars and 5 trucks.

The ferry will enter service on Måløy-Oldeide in Western Norway.

Apart from the crew, including Fjord1 representatives, Redwise provided for the fuel, lubricants and filters for the voyage, together with the usual sets of updated charts, Nautical Publications etc.

In addition Redwise added their satellite communication equipment sets and medical chest, handled ports clearances and the entire vessel management.
