Hurtigruten orders third hybrid-powered expedition cruise ship
Norway’s Kleven Verft shipyard has signed a memorandum of understanding to build a third hybrid-powered expedition cruise ship for Norwegian operator Hurtigruten. Set to debut in the second quarter of 2021, the newbuild will be based on Hurtigurten’s first two hybrids expedition ships – Roald Amundsen and Fridtjof Nansen – which are currently under construction at Kleven. The 530-guest ship will have an ice-strengthened hull and advanced technologies that enable her to sail in extreme weather and sea conditions in remote regions of the world. The newbuild will also have some innovative features, such as substantially larger battery packs. “This groundbreaking vessel will take our guests to some of the most spectacular areas of our planet, in a more sustainable and environmentally friendly way than ever seen before,” said Daniel Skjeldam, Hurtigruten CEO.Upload News
