Turkish Shipyard Launches Norway’s Largest Zero-Emission Ferry, Hinnøy

December 13, 2023by CN_MAR

Turkish Cemre Shipyard achieved a significant milestone with the launch of NB1091 Hinnøy, Norway’s largest zero-emission ferry, during a ceremony held on December 6, 2023, at the Yalova shipyard. 

Commissioned by the Norwegian ferry company Torghatten Nord AS in April of the preceding year, this zero-emission double-ended car and passenger ferry marks a noteworthy stride in sustainable maritime transportation. The Turkish shipyard had previously commemorated the vessel’s construction with a keel-laying ceremony one year ago. 

Designed for operation on the Bognes – Lødingen route in Northern Norway, Hinnøy will predominantly utilize battery-electric power, drawing its energy directly from the onshore grid through high-capacity automated charging connections. However, in situations where shore power is unavailable, the ferry is equipped with biodiesel generators capable of supplying sufficient power for routine operations. 

With a remarkable one-hour transit time, NB1091 Hinnøy stands out for its efficiency and speed among Norwegian electric-powered ferries. The 117-meter-long roll-on/roll-off passenger and vehicle ferry adheres to DNV class rules and boasts a capacity to accommodate 399 passengers, solidifying its role as a sustainable and high-capacity solution for maritime transportation.
