Cenal Launches Second Of Twin-Hulls

Monday, August 02, 1999
Since launching the first out of two hulls of the fjord ferries last April, Cenal Shipyard has sent out yet another vessel of the same kind, completing the twin hull shuttle ferries. Since signing a contract in March 1998 for the building of the two twin hulls for Fiskestrand Verft AS, Cenal began steel cutting and prefabrication of the first section for the second ferry in January 1999, followed by the installation of the sections on the slipway last April. Built according to Det Norske Veritas rules and under its survey to comply with all regulations of its class, the hull is designed to operate in Norwegian fjords carrying passengers and vehicles.
