Norway’s ferry company Norled, part of the DSD Group, has ordered two more double ended diesel electric hybrid ferries from Polish Remontowa Shipbuilding, LMG Marin said.
The two sister ships, based on the LMG 120-DEH design, were ordered less than a month after the signing of the shipbuilding contract for the first two units.
As informed, the newbuildings will operate on the Mannheller-Fodnes connection.
Compared to the two first ships intended for the Festøya-Solavågen route, these vessels will feature two modifications. Since the Mannheller-Fodnes route is shorter, the capacity of the battery pack will be reduced by approximately 20%.
At the same time, the vessels will be certified to carry more passengers with the maximum being 395 persons.
According to LMG Marin which will deliver the complete Class documentation, the design LMG 120-DEH features many energy efficient solutions including general use of heat recovery, full LED lighting, electric power transmission, demand-dependent HVAC system, low resistance hull design and weight optimized construction.
