Rolls-Royce Marine, which is being bought by Norway’s Kongsberg in a GBP 500 million deal likely to close early in 2019, will supply four Bergen gas engines, main propulsion Azipull thrusters with permanent magnet (PM) drives, PM tunnel thrusters, LNG fuel tanks with process systems, control and safety systems, and Neptune 200-type stabilisers.  
Havila Kystruten is a newcomer to the Norwegian coastal trade which has been operated exclusively until now by Hurtigruten since the service was first introduced in 1884. Earlier this year, however, Havila was awarded four of the eleven coastal licenses by the Norwegian Government and will operate the new RoPax vessels between Bergen in Norway’s south west and Kirkenes in the far north from January 2021. Two of the vessels have been ordered at Astillero Hijos de J. Barreras in Spain, and two at Turkey’s Tersan Shipyard.
Rolls-Royce Bergen engines are in operation across a wide range of vessels today including merchant ships, offshore supply vessels, tugs and passenger vessels.

Havila Kystruten AS has ordered fully integrated LNG power and propulsion systems from Rolls-Royce Commercial Marine for four RoPax vessels of Havyard 923 design to be built at shipyards in Spain and Turkey.
