Total contract value is about NOK 600 million (US$69.9 million). The ferries are designed for environmentally friendly operations in the Norwegian fjords and will carry 180 cars plus 550 passengers and crew. The ferries of Multi Maritime MM 125FD design will measure 130m of length and 20.7m of beam and will have a speed of about 18 knots. Delivery is scheduled from Vard Brevik in Norway in the third quarter of 2018 and the fourth quarter of 2018. The hulls will be built by Vard Braila in Romania.
They will be equipped with hybrid gas-electric propulsion with battery systems to reduce fuel consumption and emissions, meeting the latest requirements for energy efficiency. Torghatten Nord is a new client for Vard. The ferries are intended to be used on the Halhjem-Sandvikvag crossing, where Torghatten Nord has been awarded a five-year ferry operation contract from the Norwegian government. Torghatten Nord AS is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Torghatten ASA. The company operates seagoing public transport with a total of 47 express boats and ferries in Norway.

Norwegian yard Vard said it has won contracts to construct two LNG-powered car and passenger ferries for customer Torghatten Nord in Norway.
