Cochin Shipyard inks contracts to build autonomous electric ferries

Share this on :
The Cochin Shipyard (CSL) has inked contracts for construction and supply of two autonomous electric ferries for ASKO Maritime AS, Norway, with an option to build two more identical vessels.
CSL has bagged this export order from ASKO Maritime AS, the subsidiary group of Norges Gruppen ASA. The autonomous electrical vessel project is an ambitious one in Norway, partially funded by the Norwegian government, and aims at emission-free transport of goods across the Oslo fjord.
These vessels will be managed by Massterly AS, a joint venture (JV) between Kongsberg and Wilhelmsen.
Massterly AS will take up technical management and operate autonomous vessels. Once in operation, the vessel will create a new benchmark for the merchant shipping world in the field of autonomous vessels with zero carbon emission.
Each of the 67 mtr long vessels will initially be delivered as a full-electric transport ferry, powered by 1,846 kWh capacity battery.
After commissioning the autonomous equipment and field trials in Norway, it will operate as a fully autonomous ferry of ASKO, with capacity to transport 16 fully-loaded Standard EU trailers across the fjords.
The vessels are designed by Naval Dynamics Norway using Kongsberg Maritime systems, with detailed engineering to be carried out by CSL. They will be built under DNV GL Classification and flagged in Norway.
CSL won this order after detailed evaluation of various global shipyards and based on its value proposition to the customer.
CSL is already constructing 23 hybrid electric boats for the Kochi Water Metro.
