If you want to explore Norway’s fjords without harming the pristine natural environment, a new zero-emission passenger ship launching in 2018 will be just the thing.
The ship, called Future of The Fjords, will be built by The Fjords company and is set to launch in April 2018. The 42-metre boat will be completely electric and emission-free, according to the company, which currently operates a hybrid vessel that switches from diesel to electric power when entering Nærøyfjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The new environmentally-friendly ship will contain a hull that minimises wake and the erosion of shorelines. It will be able to carry up to 400 passengers and show off many views of the Western Norwegian fjords, a popular attraction for tourists in the area.
