The vessel takes into use new solutions to reduce noise and emissions, and is designed by Fosen Yards (now: Fosen Ulstein Design & Engineering). The ship will be a plug-in hybrid, in which the batteries are recharged via a power cable with green electricity from shore facilities or, as a secondary alternative, recharged on board by the ship's generators. See our Ropax initiatives.
