Norway: Additional Engine Tests Delay MS Stavangerfjord’s First Sailing

Bergen Group Fosen has notified Fjord Line about need of more time for testing of engines and other equipment before MS “Stavangerfjord” can be delivered.

Fjord Line AS has therefore decided to postpone the first sailing with  “Stavangerfjord” from 21 June to 14 July.

The company regrets the delay and the consequences this change has for Fjord Line and for the travelers.

MS “Stavangerfjord” is the first of two cruise ferries currently being build by Bergen Group Fosen for Fjord Line. Bergen Group Fosen and Fjord Line announced that they will in the near future consider the necessity of a later delivery date for the next cruise ferry.

The naming ceremony for MS “Stavangerfjord” will take place as planned at the yard in Rissa on Thursday 6 June. The County Mayor of Rogaland, Jane Johnsen, will be the godmother of the ship.
