Hydrogen fuelled ROPAX ferries for Vestfjorden
The hydrogen fuelled ROPAX ferries for Vestfjorden awarded LR Approval in Principle

Approval in Principle has been granted by Lloyd’s Register. This is an important step towards starting the construction of the ferries.

The two hydrogen fuelled ferries for Torghatten Nord shall enter operation on October 1st 2025 crossing the Vestfjord between the Lofoten Islands and Bodø in Northern Norway. Annual CO2 emission reductions will be about 26 500 t.

“We are very pleased with the approval in principle, and we are proud to be working with leading experts on hydrogen onboard ships. Developing hydrogen fuelled ferries for such a long and rough open ocean crossing is a world class project for CO2 emission reduction, impacting the maritime sector as well as the local communities in Bodø and the Lofoten Islands” says Torkild Torkildsen CEO Torghatten Nord.
