Norled signed major contract with Brødrene Aa for three electric high-speed ferries with battery exchange solution

High-speedNorled signed a contract with Brødrene Aa for the construction of three new 45m electric fast ferries, the single largest contract ever for Brødrene Aa and worth over NOK 420m.

The three ferries will be equipped with the battery exchange solution SHIFTR, a system where battery packs are exchanged at scheduled calls and are replaced with fully charged battery packs that are taken on board. The system is designed to be able to swap out two empty batteries with fully charged batteries in about three minutes.

Two of the vessels will sail between Trondheim and Kristiansund, while the third will go between Trondheim and Brekstad on Ørlandet.
