Rødvenfjord's battery-powered propulsion system will reduce emissions
Turkey’s Tersan Shipyard has successfully delivered a new double-ended electric ferry to Norway-based operator Fjord1.
Designed by Multi Maritime, Rødvenfjord has capacity for 299 passengers and crew members, as well as 120 cars and 12 trailers. The ferry is primarily powered by electric batteries, which are designed to charge quickly using shore power facilities while passengers are disembarking in port. The vessel is also equipped with a diesel-electric backup system, enabling her to operate in fully electric or hybrid diesel-electric mode.
Rødvenfjord also has an auto-crossing feature, which enables her to navigate autonomously on the most optimum route to reduce fuel and energy consumption.
Tersan Shipyard has successfully delivered seven fully electric ferries to Fjord1 between 2017 and 2021. It is now working on two newly designed vessels for the brand, which are scheduled for delivery in the second quarter of 2023.
