Twin Double-Ended Bio-Fuel Ferries for Norway

Norwegian ferry operator Norled expects to take delivery of twin double-ended ro/pax ferries from the Ada Shipyard in Turkey during the first quarter of 2021. To be employed on the Finnøy connections in southwestern Norway, each of the 74-meter-long vessels will be able to accommodate up to 199 passengers and crew and carry 60 cars. Propulsion and maneuverability will be provided by two Schottel SRE 270 EcoPellers fitted with 1.85-meter diameter fixed pitch propellers – one at each end of the ferry – driven by two bio-diesel engines through twin-in-single-out gearboxes to give a service speed of 11.5 knots.
