Innovative High Speed Vessel


Innovative High Speed Vessel

Rogaland Trafikkselskap in Stavanger and Fjellstrand AS (Norway) execute a contract for the construction of a high-speed FerryCat™ 120 commuter ferry for delivery in April 2003. The contract is worth approx. NOK 200 million. The ferry has been developed by Fjellstrand over the last three years and represents a completely new concept. The new vessel is a high-speed aluminium catamaran and it incorporates various innovative solutions.

The ferry will have a capacity of 112 cars and 400 passengers, and will be capable of speeds of 22-24 knots, using a recently developed propulsion system consisting of four propeller units, one at each "corner" of the vessel. The ferry will be steered from a wheelhouse equipped with an operation bridge which can be rotated 180 degrees, depending on the direction of travel of the ferry. Emissions to the environment will be reduced significantly compared with existing technology. The new ferry will provide considerable improvements for passengers in the form of shorter travel times, a more comfortable journey and quicker embarkation and disembarkation.
