Norway’s largest zero-emission ferry, Torghatten Nord’s NB1091 Hinnøy, known for its record 1 hr transit time and speed among Norwegian electric-powered ferries, is launched into the sea at Cemre Shipyard on November 6, 2023, with a ceremony.
As the 91st vessel launched from Cemre, Hinnøy marks a significant milestone in environmentally friendly technology and sustainable transportation.
117 m long Double-Ended Ro-Ro Passenger and Vehicle Ferry NB191 Hinnøy will have the capacity to carry 399 passengers and be built according to DNV class rules.
Planned to operate on the Bognes – Lødingen route in the Northern part of Norway, Hinnøy will normally operate battery-electric with all power originating from the grid onshore through high-capacity automated charging connections. In case shore power is unavailable biodiesel generators will provide sufficient power for normal operation.
