New Ferries from Austal


The first Australian built fast ferries to be imported into Norway have been delivered by Austal Ships to Norwegian ferry operator Hardanger Sunnhordlandske Dampskipsselskap (HSD). The two 42 metre catamarans were built by Austal Ships to a design jointly developed by HSD, Norwegian marine consultants Paradis Nautica, and Austal.
The vessels' operational brief included a strong environmental profile for on-board systems and the ability to further improve competitiveness through comfort and attractive facilities to increase occupancy rates and also attract new groups of travelers. A significant effort to reduce on-board noise levels included noise pulse measurements from cavitation tunnel testing of propellers and a detailed noise vibration study which was undertaken by DNV. Resultant noise levels measured on-board were well under requirements of the HSC code with levels averaging as low as 64.6 dBA in the forward main deck passenger lounge.
