The new ship’s design, construction, engineering and technology will be based on Hurtigruten’s two next-generation ships, MS Roald Amundsen and MS Fridtjof Nansen, and is set to debut in the second quarter of 2021.
” We are thrilled to introduce yet another revolutionary hybrid powered expedition ship. This groundbreaking vessel will take our guests to some of the most spectacular areas of our planet, in a more sustainable and environmentally-friendly way than ever seen before.” Said Hurtigruten CEO Daniel Skjeldam
The new hybrid power ships are said to be environmentally friendly and accommodating 530 guests, will be custom built for some of the most extreme conditions on the planet, with specially designed, ice-strengthened hull.
The Hurtigruten Kleven agreement is subject to certain contingencies, which is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2019.
