MS Roald Amundsen has made maritime history as the first cruise ship in the world to sail purely on battery power. The new expedition cruise ship, designed for some of the most spectacular waters of the planet, sailed silent and emission-free off the west coast of Norway.
According to SeaNews, the 140-meter (460-foot) expedition cruise ships, accommodating 530 guests, feature technology such as battery packs and a specially designed ice-strengthened hull. They will be capable of limited periods of all-electric operation and are expected to be about 20 percent more fuel efficient than comparable conventionally-powered vessels.
Hurtigruten CEO Daniel Skjeldam, said: “MS Roald Amundsen is designed and built with sustainability at the core of every little detail. In addition to the green technology, this makes her the first cruise ship in the world designed to be single-use plastic free.
