Norwegian Electric Systems (NES) has been contracted by Havyard Ship Technology in Leirvik to provide hybrid electric systems for three new ferries, owned by Norway-based ferry company Fjord1.

The ferries have been designed by Multi Maritime and will be equipped with NES’ Quest energy storage system, DC switchboards, generators and transformers, as well as NES' Odin's Eye solution.

The deal will also see NES provide project management, calculations and engineering, in addition to commissioning and sea trial services.

Installation of the hybrid systems will further enable Fjord1 to carry out environmentally friendly operations.

Norwegian Electric Systems sales vice-president Stein Ruben Larsen said: “We have had a good and close contact with Fjord1, Havyard and Multi Maritime during this sales process.

“Team-work has been the key-word for securing this contract.

Two of the Fjord1 ferries are set to operate the route between Norway’s Brekstad and Valset, while the other will operate between the company’s Sandvikvåg to Husavik route.

NES also entered a deal with Remontowa Shipbuilding to provide two hybrid electric systems for two new ferries in November last year.

The contract is estimated to be worth around Nkr25m ($3m), and includes NES’ complete integrated DC-Grid system, generators and four battery packs, in addition to other equipment.

The new ferries will incorporate an LMG Marin 60-DEH design, and will be owned by Transport for London (TfL).
