Color Line-Ulstein hybrid ferry LOI

This Letter of Intent covers the construction of the hybrid ro-pax, initially named Color Hybrid.

The 160 m long ferry, designed by Fosen, will be able to take on-board up to 2,000 passengers, as well as offer space for approx. 500 cars or other cargo.

Once deployed in summer 2019, Color Hybrid will replace across the Sanderfjord-Strömstad route the 1,165 pax capacity and 462 lane metres Bohus.

Color Line's newbuild will be a plug-in hybrid, with batteries filled via a power cable from the company's own shore facilities, or recharged on-board by the ship's generators. The Norwegian ferry company has already installed cold-ironing at the ports of Oslo, Larvik, and Kristiansand, and will do so in Sanderfjord.

As such, the ship will have full battery power into and out of the fjord to Sandefjord. According to Ulstein's press release, Color Hybrid will therefore not emit harmful greenhouse gases, nor nitrogen and sulphur compounds in this area.
