Hurtigruten introduces MS Roald Amundsen

The greenest cruise line in the world, Hurtigruten have introduced MS Roald Amundsen, the first of the cruise lines hybrid ships.

MS Roald Amundsen

Posted on

05 Jul 2019

This week the greenest cruise line in the world, Hurtigruten, made maritime history by launching the very first battery-powered cruise vessel. Named after explorer Roald Amundsen who led the first expedition traversing the Northwest Passage en route to the North Pole, the ship is silent and produces fewer emissions thanks to its large battery packs.

MS Roald Amundsen features new and environmentally sustainable hybrid technology that will reduce fuel consumption and show the world that hybrid propulsion on large ships is possible. Free of single-use plastics, the ship has been built with sustainability at the core – battery packs support the ship’s low-emission engines, reducing carbon emissions by more than 20% compared to other ships of the same size.

Onboard features include the Amundsen Science Centre, an all-new wellness centre featuring panoramic saunas and an infinity pool, three restaurants, various bars and suites with new spectacular views and private outdoor hot tubs.

Built at Norway’s Kleven shipyard, MS Roald Amundsen embarked on her maiden voyage along the country’s coastline with Kai Albrigsten at the helm.
