Remontowa Shipbuilding started production of hybrid double-ender for Torghatten Nord

FerryAt Remontowa Shipbuilding S.A., the construction of a 63.65-metre hybrid passenger-car ferry ordered by Norwegian shipowner Torghatten Nord AS began on 8 May 2024 with the first steel cutting.

– From 2010 to 2013, we built eight modern ferries for this shipowner. The relaunch of our cooperation confirms the positive experience and satisfaction with the delivered ferries. Today, we start a new chapter of our partnership," said Dariusz Jaguszewski, CEO of Remontowa Shipbuilding S.A.

– In addition to experience, we also chose Remontowa Shipbuilding because it provides the best quality service and, not insignificantly, the best price for us," said Marius Hansen, CEO of Thorghatten Nord AS.

The ferry will be built based on a design developed by The Norwegian Ship Design Company AS, supported in the scope of workshop documentation by Remontowa Marine Design & Consulting of the Remontowa Holding group. Delivery is planned for the first quarter of 2026.

The ferry, with a newbuilding number of B 620, will be fitted with two azimuth thrusters with vertically mounted electric motors powered either by batteries or, in case of emergency, by generating sets. Normally, the batteries will be recharged from the shore grid during unloading/loading. This will occur relatively frequently, as a single vessel transit will take no more than 12 minutes.

The ferry will operate in the harsh environment of the Arctic Circle region on the Stornes-Bjørnerå connection. Her design emphasises using lightweight materials and implementing a wide range of low-loss solutions and systems, aiming to reduce energy consumption as much as possible.
