World’s first hybrid cruise ship completes sea trial

Hurtigruten’s Roald Amundsen is nearing completion at Kleven Yard. The world’s first hybrid powered cruise ship completed her first sea trials in the fjords along the western coast of Norway in February 2019.

With Norwegian fjords as testing ground – and the famous Sunnmøre alps as a spectacular backdrop –Roald Amundsen’s advanced, green technology was put to a test in the waters off Kleven Yard in Ulsteinvik, Norway, over the weekend.

Custom-built for some of the most extreme waters on the planet, Roald Amundsen is currently undergoing final outfitting alongside her sister ship Fridtjof Nansen at Kleven Yard in Ulsteinvik, Norway.

The advanced hybrid powered expedition cruise ships, accommodating 530 guests, feature groundbreaking green technology such as battery packs and specially designed ice-strengthened hull. Both ships are designed and constructed with sustainability at core of every detail.
