The new ferries - built by CEMRE Shipard in Altinova/Turkey - are owned and operated by the shipping company Bastø Fosen and can carry 200 cars and between 24-30 trailers. The vessels are equipped with energy efficient diesel engines. Bastø Fosen’s own calculations show that the NOx emission will be reduced with more than 80 percent compared to existing ferries. In addition, a newly developed, energy efficient hull will reduce the fuel consumption with 25-30 percent compared to today’s vessels.
