Hurtigruten’s MS Roald Amundsen is world’s first hybrid-powered cruise ship

Published on : Tuesday, July 2, 2019

The Hurtigruten ship, MS Roald Amundsen became world’s first hybrid cruise vessel powered by both batteries and fuel. It features groundbreaking green technology. As per Hurtigruten CEO Daniel Skjeldam, the cruise sets a new standard for cruising and the entire shipping industry. He said that the ship’s battery pack enables it to run solely on batteries for around 45 to 60 minutes under ideal conditions.

 

 

 

The hybrid-powered cruise ship support her low-emission engines, which will reduce CO2 emissions by more than 20 per cent compared to other vessels of the same size. It can ferry 500 passengers.

 

 

 

The MS Roald Amundsen will also feature several exciting amenities, including vast observation decks, an infinity pool, panoramic sauna, wellness center, three restaurants, bars, Explorer Lounge, aft-facing suites with private outdoor hot tubs and a laidback atmosphere.

 

 

 

The cruise ship is the first world’s first cruise to be single-use plastic free. Skjeldam went on to say Hurtigruten will give the guests a deeper understanding of the areas the cruise line explores with the help of the Hurtigruten Expedition Team, the industry-first Science Center and more.

 

 

 

Hurtigruten took delivery of the world’s first hybrid-powered cruise ship from Norway’s Kleven yard in June. The new vessel was built alongside sister ship MS Fridtjof Nansen, which is scheduled to debut in 2020.

 

 

 

MS Roald Amundsen’s maiden season includes expedition cruises along the Norwegian coast to Svalbard and Greenland. It will become the first hybrid-powered ship to attempt a traverse of the legendary Northwest Passage.
