LMG Marin signs a Design Contract for three Double Ended Diesel Electric Hybrid ferries for Norled built at Sembcorp Marine in Singapore

LMG Marin has been awarded for the design of three battery-plug-in double ended ferries for the Hella-Vangsnes-Dragsvik connection in Norway. The vessels, with a capacity of 296 passengers and 80 personal cars will feature innovative solutions for environmentally friendly operation, with great focus on ensuring the lowest possible energy consumption. The vessels will be delivered in the Fourth Quarter of 2020. The LMG Marinís scope of work for this project covers the complete Class documentation.

The ferries will be built according to the LMG 80-DEH design developed by LMG Marin. The design LMG 80-DEH features many energy efficient solutions including general use of heat recovery, full LED lighting, highly efficiency electric power transmission, demand-dependent HVAC system, low friction hull paint and lightweight construction.

Once all three LMG 80-DEH ferries are delivered, the number of LMG Marin designed ferries in the modern Norled fleet will amount a total 13 units with 8 ferries of LMG Marin design currently being built for Norled. This new contract is also another chapter in the fruitful cooperation between LMG Marin and Sembcorp Marine and confirms the Singaporeanís Shipyard ambitions in low environmental footprint technologies.
