The ferries “Kongen”, “Dronningen” and “Prinsen” carry yearly close to 2.7 million passengers between Aker Brygge and Nesoddtangen. Earlier this month it became known that the three boats should be converted to become electric. Westcon Power & Automation will be responsible for the conversion to a zero-emission solution for the boats.
“We have been working closely with Norled for a long time to find the best solution for this short, but very busy stretch. For us, it is a large and prestigious contract with significant workflow. Electric propulsion is the future of ferries, and we are proud to be a spearhead in this development”, said Frode Skaar, Head of Sales & Business Development at Westcon Power & Automation.
