Color Line, which operates four ferry services based in three Norwegian cities, is taking bids for a brand-new ship, to be liquefied natural gas-fueled, to operate between Sandefjord and Strømstad (Sweden).
“With optimized hull and efficient propulsion machinery,” Color Line says, it will be one of the most environmentally friendly and quiet day ferries in the world, serving the two city centers.
Color Line notes that it began implementing shore power for electricity for its ships berthing in Oslo this past autumn.
The firm’s new 525-foot LNG ferry, with capacity for some 2000 people and 500 cars, will be ready for the summer 2014 season on the Sandefjord-Strømstad route.Contact information is only available to premium subscribers. Click here to purchase a premium subscription.
