PBES Energy Storage powers Norway’s newest battery electric ferries
Fjord1’s electric ferries are powered by batteries

PBES Energy Storage has installed two 1 MWh battery systems aboard Fjord1’s new electric ferries in Norway.

Gloppefjord and Eidsfjord service the E39 highway route on the 2 km crossing between the Anda and Lote docks. They were built by Tersan Shipyard in Turkey and designed by Norway-based company Multi Maritime.

“Anda-Lote is a vital link for western Norway,” said PBES vice president marketing Grant Brown. “We are extremely happy to have been chosen to supply powerful and reliable PBES batteries for these innovative vessels. PBES remains committed to providing the best quality, Norwegian built energy storage for the ferry industry.”

The zero-emissions ferries are part of the ongoing push for zero and low emission public transportation in Norway. Each 106 m vessel can carry 120 cars and 349 passengers on the eight-minute crossing.
