Cavotec powers ship of the year
A carbon fibre passenger ferry, powered by Cavotec, was named Ship of the Year at SMM.
Vision of the Fjords relies on shore power systems to charge its battery units and is already in operation between Flåm in the Aurland fjord and Gudvangen, in the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Nærøy fjord, southern Norway.
The trip for the battery-powered hybrid vessel is scheduled around 700 times every year, it is operated by the Fjords, and carries carry up to 399 passengers.
Cavotec designed and manufactured two low voltage dispenser units - located in Flåm and Gudvangen - which ensure the safe and efficient charging of the Vision of the Fjords' battery packs.
