«Ampere» – Ship of the year 2014


The world`s first battery-powered ferry «Ampere» was delivered to the owner Norled AS in October 2014.  «Ampere» is a 100% battery powered catamaran in aluminium. This is Fjellstrand AS yard no 1696, and the hull is built by Aluship Technology in Gdansk, Poland. The 80m long vessel will be able to carry 120 cars and 360 passengers – and will operate across Sognefjorden between Lavik and Oppedal.  The naming ceremony found place at Omastrand and «Ampere» was named by Minister of Trade and Industry Monica Mæland.

The all-electric car ferry «ZeroCat 120» was given Skipsrevyen’s prestigious “Ship of the Year 2014” award at SMM in Hamburg the same year.
