In January 2, 2019, the newbuilding made its first voyage on
the Sulesund-Hareid route. Two more ships are scheduled to be delivered for
this route this winter.
NB59 Hadaroy was launched at Cembre II shipyard in Turkey in
June 2018. Following its completion, the ship was towed to Norway for fitting
The 700 dwt ship is Havyard’s first of a series of 12 ferry
designs for Fjord1. Featuring a length of 111 meters and a width of 17 meters,
the ship is able to reach the speed of 10 knots.
The ferry is able to carry around 400 passengers and 120
cars across the fjord in an efficient manner, and minimal energy consumption
has been a key focus in the development of the design.
Hadaroy is part of the green shift taking place in Norwegian
ferry operations and is expected to make a strong contribution to improving the
environment with its battery power.
