Myklebust secured an order for two new Torghatten Nord hydrogen ferries

FerryMyklebust Verft just secured an order to build the two hydrogen powered ferries for the 3.5-hour long Bodø-Lofoten route that Torghatten Nord won the contract for more than two years ago.

The Norwegian Ship Design Company (NSDC) is behind the design of these 120-metre double-enders, which each will have a capacity for 120 cars and 599 passengers. They will operate year-round and will daily require 5-6 t hydrogen, and it is required that only “green” hydrogen is used. 

The hydrogen will be supplied from GreenH's facility at Langstranda in Bodø, which will have a capacity to produce 6-10 tonnes of hydrogen per day.

Torghatten Nord’s contract with the Norwegian Public Roads Administration (Statens Vegvesen) for this route is worth NOK 4.98 billion (approximately EUR 496 million) and will start on 1 October 2025, and last for 15 years.

The two sister ferries currently operating the route, VÆRØY and LANDEGODE, will be converted from using LNG to biofuels, and they will accompany the new ferries in the summer tourist season.
