Norwegian Electric Systems (NES), a subsidiary of maritime technology group Havyard, Monday received an order for the world’s largest battery package to be installed on Oslo-listed shipping firm Havila Kystruten’s coastal ferries.
It will deliver a complete hybrid propulsion system that has capacity of 6,100 kWh per vessel, more than double the power of the biggest battery-operated ferries, to the newbuildings.
The delivery also contains a charging system for onshore charging. The package is further adapted to be able to use next generation technologies such as hydrogen fuel cells.
The delivery will start in summer 2019 and the coastal route vessels should be in service from 2021.
“With this order, we will demonstrate that we have the right technology to meet future requirements for lower emissions and greener shipping,” say President and CEO of NES, Tor Leif Mongstad.
“We were able to deliver the right technology at the right price and had the capacity to deliver at the right time. This has ensured a breakthrough for us in a new and important market.”
