Tersan Shipyard successfully delivered the 7th bidirectional electric passenger and vehicle ferry Rødvenfjord to Fjord1 ASA.
The ferry named Rødvenfjord, designed by Multi Maritime, stands out as the third in the series, the first of which was delivered in August 2019, and as the 7th ferry delivered to Fjord1 ASA by Tersan Shipyard.
The 107.47 meters long and 17.7 meters wide ferry has the capacity to carry 299 passengers including the crew, 120 vehicles and 12 trailers.
Rødvenfjord is designed to charge passengers while they are getting off and on the ship, thanks to fast charging batteries from the shore. Designed with a diesel-electric backup system in accordance with the changing environmental requirements of the last century, the ferry will be able to operate in all-electric mode, hybrid mode and diesel-electric mode.
The ferry, which will provide efficient, comfortable, energy efficient and environmentally friendly transportation, loading and unloading of vehicles and passengers, will reduce fuel/energy consumption by autonomously cruising on the most optimum route with its automatic navigation feature.
