Hurtigruten introduces three new hybrid powered cruise ships

Hurtigruten continues to move boundaries for green technology. Following makeovers, three Hurtigruten vessels will be transformed to premium, hybrid-powered expedition cruise ships.

Equipped with battery packs and other green technology, the three ships will operate year-round expedition cruises along the Norwegian coast from 2021 on yet to be disclosed itineraries.

This means Hurtigruten – which this summer introduced the world’s first hybrid powered cruise ship, Roald Amundsen – will add another three hybrid powered ships to what is already considered the greenest fleet of cruise ships in the world.

With these new expedition cruise vessels, you will be able to explore Norway as never before, with all the comforts, facilities and expertise you need for creating a perfect adventure.

Combined with groundbreaking green technology, these ships will stand out, Hurtigruten CEO Daniel Skjeldam says.

As they are transformed into full-fledged premium expedition cruise ships, the current Trollfjord, Finnmarken and Midnatsol will be renamed Maud, Otto Sverdrup and Eirik Raude.
