“The Norwegian explorer cruise line, Hurtigruten, is building new expedition ships using a new and environmentally sustainable hybrid technology. The chosen solutions will reduce fuel consumption by approximately 20 percent. For the first time, fully electric propulsion on a passenger ship will be possible.

The future of shipping is, without a doubt, silent and emission free, says CEO of Hurtigruten, Daniel Skjelda. “We will use our new expeditionary ships as groundbreakers for this new technology and show the world that hybrid propulsion on large ships is possible.”
