Delivery of Kystruten vessel Havila Capella

OSM proudly announces that the vessel Havila Capella was delivered the previous week. Havila Capella departed from the TERSAN Shipyard of Yalova in Turkey, towards Bergen on the 9th of November 2021.

As per the Site Manager, Deri Setiawan, Havila Capella is a modern Coastal Passenger Vessel that shall be able to operate year around along the Norwegian coast from Bergen to Kirkenes and Return according to the requirement given by the Norwegian Ministry of Transportation Samferdsels departementet.

The Kystruten vessel is designed and constructed to provide safe, effective, comfortable, energy efficient and environmentally friendly transport, loading & unloading of Passengers and Cargo. The vessel is built according to safe return to port requirement and philosophy.

The basic principle for the design of this Vessel is to meet operational and environmental demands with the best and most modern solutions using LNG (Liquid Natural Gas) fuel and Battery power for the propulsion. In general, special consideration is taken in the design, and in the selection of machinery and equipment etc, with regards to prevention of pollution and in order to obtain the highest possible energy efficiency of the vessel. The Vessel is designed with two azimuth propulsion thrusters aft and two tunnel bow thrusters fore, gives the vessel good operational capability.

The Vessel is Hybrid Gas-Electric / Battery driven for optimal operation and flexibility in order to reduce fuel consumption, emission, noise and vibration during transit and manoeuvring. The Batteries packages can be charged from an ashore power supply connection. The battery packages can also be used as an independent power source for possible “ZERO EMMISION” voyage, e.g. as in the UNESCO area of the Geiranger fjord.

Projects & New Building Supervision Managing Director, Douglas Dalli, and Business Development Coordinator, Álvaro García, on behalf of OSM, would like to wish Havila Capella Fair Winds and Following Seas.
