Ny_MM63FC-FINAL RENDER

Torghatten signs contract with Fiskerstrand for battery-ready ferry

The ferry will run between Tjøtta and Forvik in northern Norway. The vessel can run on biodiesel and has an option for installing a battery. Multi Maritime has designed the vessel, which is the fourth vessel Torghatten has ordered from Multi Maritime this year.

The possibility of running on 100 % biodiesel makes it possible to reduce CO2-emissions in areas where the power grid onshore does not have the capacity for charging a battery. 

The ferry will be 70 metres long, 14 metres wide, have a 2000 kW gen-set and the capacity to carry 60 cars.
