Sedef Shipyard delivers the Stokkafjord

Sedef Shipyard recently delivered a new double-ended Ro-Pax ferry to Norwegian transport company Boreal for operation by its Boreal Sjo shipping line.

Stokkafjord was designed by Norwegian naval architecture firm Multi Maritime as a plug-in hybrid vessel for operation in the northern part of the country. It has a length of 80.5 meters, a beam of 14.5 meters, a gross tonnage of 2,700, and a capacity for 249 passengers, 60 cars, and six 19.5-meter trailers. There is ample space to allow all passengers and vehicles to be accommodated on a single deck.

The hybrid propulsion setup includes a Corvus Energy battery with a 2,034kWh capacity. In addition to ensuring operations with reduced noise, the battery will also help the ferry achieve CO2 emissions reductions of as much as 1,000 tonnes each year. Charging is done at the two stops along the ferry’s route.

The propulsion also includes four Scania DI16M main engines connected to Stamford generators that in turn drive two Kongsberg Maritime azimuthing thrusters.

The DNV-classed Stokkafjord is homeported in Hammerfest and has already begun sailing on Boreal Sjo’s Tjotta–Forvik connection that spans 17.4 kilometers in Nordland County. The ferry can complete each one-way trip in 70 minutes.
