Four ships at sea for Havila Voyages

The new company Havlla Voyages now has four ships at sea, with Havila Capella on her first voyage along the Norwegian coast at the same time as ship three and four were launched at the shipyard in Turkey.

12 December 2021 was a historic day for Havila Voyages when Havila Capella embarked on her maiden voyage and became the first new ship on the coastal route between Bergen and Kirkenes in 18 years.

A new milestone was also reached as all four new ships for the company are now afloat. Of these, the company’s second ship, Havila Castor, is scheduled to depart Bergen on 7 April 2022. Ships three and four, Havila Polaris and Havila Pollux, will follow soon afterward.

All four ships have the same design and technology, and Havila Kystruten has spent around NOK 500 million to make the ships environmentally friendly.

The ships have the world’s largest battery pack for passenger ships, which weigh 86 tons, and have a capacity of 6.1 megawatt hours.

The batteries enable the ships to sail for four hours without noise and emissions through world heritage fjords and vulnerable nature.
