Vard to build two LNG powered ferries for Norway

February 17, 2017. Vard has secured contracts for the construction of two liquefied natural gas (LNG) powered car and passenger ferries for Torghatten Nord in Norway. The new car and passenger ferries are designed for environmentally friendly operations in the Norwegian fjords, with a total capacity that can accommodate up to 180 cars and 550 passengers and crew. The ferries of Multi Maritime MM 125FD design will measure more than 425-feet in length and will have a speed of approximately 18 knots.

   Delivery of the ferries is scheduled from Vard Brevik in Norway in the third and fourth quarters of 2018, respectively. The hulls of the vessels will be built by Vard Braila in Romania. They will be equipped with hybrid gas-electric propulsion with battery systems to reduce fuel consumption and emissions, meeting the latest requirements for energy efficiency.

   The ferries are intended to be used on the Halhjem-Sandvikvåg crossing, where Torghatten Nord has been awarded a five-year contract with the Norwegian government.
