    World's CAR FERRIES

    CAR FERRIES from all over the world

    How about making a special car-ferry thread for car ferries from across the world. I open the thread with this veteran carrying the name Eiksund.

    The photo was taken at Saebø on January 24th 2009:

    Yes, there will be two, serving the same route: Seivika (in Kristiansund) - Tømmervåg (at Tustna in Aure municipality).
    The other ferry is named GRIP, and she left Valetta, Malta yesterday.
    Sailing, as of right now, in the straight between Tunis and Sicilia at 12 knots :-)

    There will be two of that kind, right? The former Tustna is now serving a ferry route in the Caribbean Sea, near St.Vincent.

    Brand new car ferry TUSTNA arriving Kristiansund 30th January 2020 after a long journey from the ship yard Cemre in Altinova, Turkey.
    It's a hybrid ferry for the Seivika-Tømmervåg stretch between Kristiansund and Tustna island.

    Just managed to take her photo before she moored at the former shipyard Sterkoder

    Beautiful, beautiful SVANØY... such a great ship, with so much power and so many high quality details. A great vessel to serve as the Captain of.

    By the way, TRESFJORD has become the ROMOEXPRESS / RømøExpress and this is a rendering of how she will eventually appear.

    From smp.no today:
    World's largest plug-in hybrid ship delivered from Ulstein shipyard

    Color Hybrid, the world's largest plug-in hybrid ship, was delivered Thursday from Ulstein Verft to Color Line.
    MS Color Hybrid, a cruise ferry from Color Line will be on the route between Sandefjord in Norway and Strömstad in Sweden. Here on sea trials in Vartdalsfjord. Built at Ulstein shipyard in Ulsteinvik PHOTO: STAALE WATTØ

    The ship is 160 meters long and 27.1 meters wide, and has the capacity to carry 2,000 passengers and 500 passenger cars. Maritime Cluster

    The ship is an important project for both Ulstein, Color Line and the maritime cluster, write the shipyard in a press release.

    More than 70 per cent of the suppliers on the ship are from the maritime cluster in Norway.

    - With broad maritime expertise, our talented and dedicated staff have made a great effort to complete the Color Hybrid, says CEO Gunvor Ulstein, according to the press release.

    - Construction of the world's largest plug-in hybrid ship is in line with our ambitions for further development of sustainable and environmentally friendly solutions for Norwegian shipping, says CEO Trond Kleivdal of Color Line.

    The battery pack weighs 65 tonnes and can be charged in one hour.

    - The ship uses new solutions to reduce noise and emissions. The five megawatt battery can be recharged via a power cable, with environmentally friendly power from the hydro power plant and charging station at the dock in Sandefjord, Ulstein Verft writes in a press release.

    The ship will go in and out of the Sandefjord approximating noiseless and no emissions of harmful environmental gases or nitrogen and sulphur particles to the air, according to the shipyard.

    In addition, the ship has a heat reservoir that utilise heat from cooling water and exhaust for heating.

    On the deck, there will be a greenhouse driven by waste heat, where among other things it will grow herbs and vegetables served on board.

    Glass floors are laid on the bridge wings so the bridge staff can follow the waves and look directly down at the open sea, or the wharf.

    She just left from Fiskerstrand today at 1714 hrs. bound for Ijmuiden. Probably short stop to prepare for the Atlantic crossing with a Dutch delivery crew on board, just like the last one.

    The first is already serving on the Straits of Bell Isle and a third one of the same type has recently arrived in Canada for refit at a Canadian yard.
    All three were originally built by Fiskerstrand for trading in Estonia.

    PS>The new name just showed up on AIS.
    I saw one of these from the shore when I dropped by Korsfjord there back in mid-October last year. These are some very large vessels.
