Remontowa celebrates keel laying for new hybrid ferry

The keel of a new hybrid ferry was laid at Remontowa Shipbuiding in Gdansk. The shipyard, a Remontowa Holding company, celebrated the first steel cut in May.

The next milestone in the construction of the double-ended ferry has now been reached.  The client for the newbuilding is the Norwegian shipping company Torghatten Nord AS. According to the shipyard, the keel laying marks the transition to the next phase – the start of hull assembly.

Remontowa builds the ninth ferry for Torghatten

This is the ninth ferry to be built by Remontowa Shipbuilding for Torghatten Nord AS. The newly built double-ended ferry is intended for use in the Norwegian fjords on the Stornes-Bjørnerå route. It will have two azimuth thrusters and vertically mounted electric motors powered by batteries or emergency generators.

During normal operation, the batteries will be recharged via the onshore power grid during loading and unloading. This happens relatively frequently, as a single ferry crossing takes no longer than twelve minutes. The ferry is scheduled to be handed over to the shipping company in the first quarter of 2026.
