Building number 278 from Norwegian carbon experts Brødrene Aa, M/S Fjordlys, was delivered to Norled in December 2014. The vessel is a 180 pax carbon fiber catamaran, and a repeat of its sister vessels M/S Fjorddrott, M/S Fjordfart og M/S Fjordkatt.
M/S Fjordlys is equipped with the Servogear Ecoflow Propulsor™ system. Length: 27m. Power: 2 x MTU 10V 2000 M72, 900 kW @ 2250 rpm. Speed 30 knots. Servogear HD220L/HR-PTO (2.952:1) gearboxes turning 1075 mm propellers.
Rogaland Kommune and the transportation company Kolumbus, focuses on reducing CO2 and NOX pollution. Therefor they demand the vessels built in carbon fiber, as well as choosing a green propulsion system from Servogear AS.
The new generation high speed vessels contributes to achieving an important goal, reducing the climate emissions. In addition, M/S Fjordlys will contribute to reducing the local pollutions, says Managing Director in Norled Ivan Fossan.
