Color Line focuses on weight reduction for hybrid vessel
Color Line’s new hybrid ship is beginning to take shape at Ulstein Shipyard. M/S Color Hybrid will serve the Sandefjord – Strømstad route with high capacity and minimal emissions.
We have focused on saving weight at all stages of the project.
Robin Tomren, Project director for M/S Color Hybrid
The world’s largest plug-in hybrid vessel is 160 metres long and capable of carrying 2000 passengers or about 500 cars. M/S Color Hybrid will run on batteries in and out of the Sandefjord fjord and will thus not emit greenhouses gases or nitrogen and sulfur compounds. The noise level of the vessel is low and energy recovery high. But perhaps most importantly for those who want to take a trip over the water – the ship promises a first class experience and comfort.
