Energy efficient hull
In Norway we have silence, unspoilt scenery, pure water and fresh air. That is how we want it to stay. That is why we at Havila Kystruten have a green focus on everything we do. We use less plastic and produce less emissions, we have close ties with local producers, serve locally sourced food and use more eco-friendly solutions and technologies.
From 2021, we will have two new vessels on the Bergen-Kirkenes route. The next two are coming in 2022.
These four ships have the world's largest battery packs on board. This means that you can sail quietly and considerately for four hours, visiting fjords and other vulnerable areas without creating noise and emissions.
For the new coastal routes, the environment and sustainability are top of the agenda. The hull is specially designed to be as energy-efficient as possible and is custom-built to withstand the weather along the Norwegian coast on the voyage that stops at 34 ports. The ship is powered by a battery and liquid natural gas. It cuts CO2 emissions by around 25% and NOx emissions by 80–95%. And when the batteries need to be charged at charging stations along the coast, the energy for this comes from clean hydropower.
On board, surplus heat from cooling water, sea and energy management system is recovered and utilised.
We are sailing through the world heritage, and so will those who come after us.
