The first of five newly built, modern, emission-free island boats arrived in Oslo on Wednesday. According to the plan, it will start operating after the New Year.

The new all-electric boat has been named Oslofjord 1 and will go through, among other things, technical adaptations and testing before it is put into operation in mid-January.

The next four boats will arrive in Oslo towards the summer season and further in 2022. The boats are universally designed and have room for an extra 100 passengers – compared to the current capacity. 

All public transport in the capital region will be emission-free by 2028. 

The new Oslo boats have been designed by Multi Maritime in Førde and are being built in Turkey.
